Time needed: 55 – 65 minutes
The Bronze Award is the highest award a Girl Scout Junior can earn. To earn it, you work as a team. The team identifies a community issue they care about, research what causes the issue, come up with a solution, and work with the community to make a plan that brings the solution to life. Juniors will learn important leadership skills, discover new passions, and watch how seemingly small actions can make a BIG difference. In this activity we are going to be learning through play! Through creativity, unlock your imagination and begin taking steps to rebuild the world. You will use LEGO® bricks or other DIY materials to identify different communities you’re a part of and brainstorm ways you can make a positive change.
Next Steps include sharing your ideas with your Bronze Award team or if you don’t have a team yet, then it’s time to build one! Have the team gather more information to really understand the problems and choose the one that you can do best to make a difference.
