Programming Ideas for Troop Meetings
  • Have a map of the US and let the girls plot the road trip as they read the story
  • Ask girls to share pictures or describe their favorite family trip or vacation
  • Let girls design their own “smart” cars using recycled materials
  • Complete activities related to Leave No Trace principles

Helpful Hints
  • Treat the story as a discussion time, this is a great time for girls to share their thinking as you read the story together
  • Various aspects of STEM programming are built into this Journey – encourage girls to take a side trip to further explore this area
  • Each girl should have a copy of the Journey book    
  • The green boxes throughout the Facilitator Guide have great additional programming options
