World Centres Meeting Outline

Many of you do not know that I am a leader in a Girl Guide unit. One of the meetings I am planning is to incorporate the world centres into a meeting. Unfortunately, I could not find something for the 5th world center so I tried to incorporate it with Sangam.

World Centres Meeting

Introduce the girls to the WAGGS world centres.

Cut the pieces, hand it out to the girls, they have to find their groups. Because of the number of girls and the groups I chose to only do 5 of the questions. It is much simpler and the girls will memorize the fact about the centre.

Our CabaƱa

Game- Jumping Beans
This is a fun easy game that requires only music. The girls are standing, but when the music is playing the start jumping (hence jumping beans). When the music suddenly stops, so should the girls. Those that move are out. Those girls then help supervise and try to find out which girls are also moving. The goal of the game is to be the last girl standing.

Our Chalet


Craft- Scherenschnitte
The goal of this craft is to cut the paper snowflakes and paste unto colouring paper. I choose the snowflake since it was easier and its winter. If you search for scherenschnitte you will find the paper cutting is intricate and hard.
This one is much easier (and the girls will love them) Frozen snowflakes. If doing this one I recommend that 2 sheets of the pattern be printed then cutout, then handed to the girls. They’ll trace it then cut it. The Frozen one also comes with the how-to instructions.

Pax Lodge

Game- British Bulldog.
It is a basic (nonviolent, because originally it's violent) game of tag that will let them run off their energy.

Sangam

Craft- Elephant and world centres colouring pages.
While the girls are doing this, I and the other leaders will be talking about the centre in India and the traveling centre in Africa.
World Centres colouring page. It took me forever to find this page specifically, but I finally found it (yay!).

Closing

In the end, I will bring all the girls together and ask them what they learned and what they enjoyed most about a 'world centre'.
Hopefully, this will help you, guiders. Leave any suggestions down below. 
See you next time.
