World Thinking Day (Lincoln)
Each year on February 22, World Thinking Day, girls honor their sister Girl Guides and Girl Scouts by taking time to give thanks for their international friendships and remembering that Girl Scouts of the USA is part of a global community.
Part of the fun of World Thinking Day is in discovering more about the world around us. To share this experience, all participating troops and/or individuals will be required to represent a country.
Check out the different ways you can do this below, then email Member Support to reserve your country and receive further information.
**PLEASE NOTE: THE DATE, TIME AND LOCATION HAVE CHANGED DUE TO RE-SCHEDULING**
HOW TO “REPRESENT” A COUNTRY:
Step 1 - Choose a country you want to learn about.
Step 2 - Research the country; find out what it would be like to be a girl growing up there.
Step 3 - Create a colorful display and develop a fun, interactive activity to teach other participants about your chosen country. Some suggestions are:
- Teaching girls how to count to 10 in the country’s language.
- Performing a dance or playing an instrument unique to the country.
- Teaching a game or a craft that girls might enjoy if they lived there.
- Preparing and offering small samples of a food the country is known for (no nuts, please!).
- Provide clothing samples, such as kimonos or sombreros, for girls to try on.
- Demonstrate how to use chopsticks and have girls try to pick up a piece of rice with them.
