Daisy Eco Learner Badge Activity


Keep Living Things Safe When You Walk

Make a nature circle. 

Activity Details

Time needed: 15-30 minutes

Materials needed: 3 feet or more of string

Activity: In your backyard, on a trail, or sidewalk, lay a circle of string at least three feet long next to the walk or path. Look in the circle and count how many things you find living there, like plants or bugs. Which things are there many of? Which are there few of? Did anything surprise you? If you make a nature circle in another location, what do you think will be different or the same?

Troop Leaders:  The instructions for all badge steps are available free of charge in your  Girl Scout Volunteer Toolkit.

Girl Scouts at Home activities have been adapted from existing Girl Scout programming and optimized for use at home during a period of social distancing.
