The three awards that girls earn on this journey fit on a colorful garden patch background that can be placed on the Daisies’ tunics—wherever they like! Birdbath Award What it means for Daisies: They can say: “Animals need care; I need care. I can do both.” How Daisies earn it: They name one way they can care for animals and one way they can care for themselves (Sessions 1-3). When Daisies i receive it: Session 4 Red Robin Award What it means for Daisies: They can use their new knowledge and creativity to teach others how to care for animals.

Find a way for her to do something similar to what she missed so she can still earn the award with her group.

    “Fantastical Animals Flip Book”—a fantastic way to boost the Daisies’ confidence! 4 SAMPLE SESSION 4 All Creatures, Great and Special ALL CREATURES, GREAT AND SPECIAL CREATIVITY, A CONFIDENCE- BUILDER! More than just an art project, the “Fantastical Animals Flip Book” gets the girls thinking about what makes different animals unique. Then, in the Team Talk that follows, they turn their focus on themselves and their unique attributes. Girls knowing themselves— that’s part of the Discover key, and a confidencebooster! AT A GLANCE Goal: Girls begin to explore how animals, like people, are unique, including in the ways they communicate and move. Opening Ceremony: Animals Around the World (Cheetah: Kenya) Earning the Birdbath Award Story Time: “The First Stories” (continued) Fantastical Animals Flip Book Snack Time: Apple Ladybugs Busy Squirrels Song and Dance Closing Ceremony: Moving Toward the Red Robin Award MATERIALS Opening Ceremony: picture of a cheetah (page 51), markers, crayons, glue, assorted craft materials; Team Animal Mural Earning the Birdbath Award: Birdbath Awards (one for each girl); girls’ books Fantastical Animals Flip Book: construction paper or thin cardboard; three-ring binder; animal pictures of approximately the same size cut from magazines; glue sticks; scissors; hole punch; and (if girls will draw their own animals) crayons, markers, colored pencils, and other craft materials Snack Time: (see “Apple Ladybugs” recipe, page 74 in the girls’ book) Closing Ceremony: the robin the girls have made or any image of a robin; Team Birdbath 50

    4 PREPARE AHEAD Set out the art supplies for the “Fantastical Animals Flip Book.” Core and slice apples in half from top to bottom for the “Apple Ladybugs,” and prepare other ingredients the girls will need to make them (see page 74 in the girls’ book). Make certain about peanut and/or dairy allergies before choosing the toppings. Opening Ceremony: Animals Around the World (Cheetah: Kenya) Gather the girls in a Daisy Circle and say something like: During the flower friends’ story, “A Purr-fect Surprise in the Garden,” Mari, the marigold, says that on her travels, she’s seen many cats, big and small. Point out that the cheetah, a big cat, is the national animal of Kenya, a country in Africa, Mari’s homeland. ALL CREATURES, GREAT AND SPECIAL Show the girls the picture of a cheetah, below, and share these facts, some of which the girls may have already learned from their book: The cheetah is the fastest mammal on land. It can move as fast as 70 miles an hour! That is like a very fast car moving on the highway or a racetrack! Then let them know that cheetahs, like other wild animals, need plenty of space for exercise. Invite the girls to create a cheetah for their Team Animal Mural. Let them know that their cheetahs don’t have to look exactly like the picture of the cheetah that you showed them. Maybe they want to draw how a cheetah feels when it runs at top speed or when it rests in the shade after a fast run. (And since Mari says she’s seen “many cats,” give the girls the option of drawing or making as many cats as they wish—big and little!) 51

    Dummy text here in a triangle that fills the space but doesn’t get too near the trim. 4 ALL CREATURES, GREAT AND SPECIAL MATERIALS construction paper or thin cardboard three-ring binder animal pictures of approximately the same size cut from magazines glue sticks scissors hole punch, crayons, markers, colored pencils, and other craft materials (if girls will draw their own animals) GET CREATIVE! Fantastical Animals Flip Book Introduce this team-building art activity by reminding the girls that all animals—like all people—are special in their own way. You might also say that all animals are unique. Ask if any girls know what unique means. If they aren’t sure (or their answers aren’t quite on target!), let them know that unique means interesting, special, cool, and different all rolled into one. You might say: Animals are unique, and so are all Daisies! (The girls may even know the TV character Uniqua from the children’s TV show “The Backyardigans.”) Let the girls know that they’re going to team up to make a flip book of unique animals—animals they make up! They’re going to see firsthand how cool it is to be unique. Depending on how you’ve decided to structure this activity, ask each girl to: A. Choose an animal picture from the selection you have and paste it on a sheet of cardboard or construction paper, OR 1 B. Draw an animal of their choice on the paper you provide. If the girls are drawing their animals, make sure they all create their drawings in the same way—either horizontally or vertically—and roughly the same size. You might have the girls draw the head on the right side of the paper, the front legs in the middle, and the hind legs and tail on the left. Be sure to encourage any older Daisies to help the younger ones! 54
