Camping with your Brownie troop? Learning how to enjoy ALL aspects of the outdoors can be a challenge - help them enjoy it by working on the Bugs Badge (a Legacy badge from the Naturalist category). Our troop did a scavenger hunt to see how many bugs they could find near the camp site, listened to and observed bugs with an entomologist dad, made a bug poster, performed skits about bug habitats (cocoons, hives, etc.), and made a bug swap.

I wish I had lessons like this when I was trying to learn :) Great activity during a weather unit. 2 liter soda bottle cut in half. Put about an inch and a half of warm water (w blue food coloring) in the bottom. Invert the top of the bottle with the lid on and fill with ice. Watch the water condensate and watch it "rain" THIS is brilliant!

WOW! Wonders of Water project idea (you need an iPhone to do this with girls): Creek Watch is an iPhone application created by IBM Research that enables you to help monitor the health of your local watershed. Whenever you pass by a waterway, spend a few seconds using the Creek Watch application to snap a picture and report how much water and trash you see. We aggregate the data and share it with water control boards to help them track pollution and manage water resources.
