Suggestions for Using this Booklet
For this meeting you will need to choose a book to read to the troop. You can also play a readaloud video from Youtube.
Read a book to your troop that covers the topic of resources and using resources wisely. Here are some popular choices as well as video read alouds if you don't have acess to the book.
The Wartville Wizard (Buy on Amazon)
The Wump World (Buy on Amazon)
The Lorax (Buy on Amazon)
Common Ground:The Water, Earth, and Air We Share (Buy on Amazon)
Here we teach the girls about different types of resources. We can explain that some things are finite (like land) and others replenish themselves (like air). But regardless, we must try to keep the quality of these resources clean and we must be sure not to overuse certain resources.
The resources on this page are:
Have the girl do a craft using recyclable materials. It can be a simple collage using newspapers and magazines. Or you can follow the instructions on this page to make an easy Peanut Butter Bird Feeder.
Use seed butters like Sunflower Seed Butter if there are any allergies.
Lastly, have the girls write how they will use resources wisely.
