Suggested Family Activity • Thursday July 30, 2020
In order to meet the current need to social distance, the Girl Scouts have adapted existing in person Girl Scout programming for free use in your home. Current Girl Scout members can do these activities to earn badges while others interested in the organization can look at their great free activities and resources for free online. Each activity is specifically geared for Daisies (K-1st grade) through Ambassadors (Grades 11-12). They can be found at https://www.girlscouts.org/en/girl-scouts-at-home.html. This week, the group has posted a Great Space Challenge filled with lots of things to do, including links to interactive NASA activities, tips on where to find The Big Dipper and other constellations while star-gazing, coloring and activity sheets and help for how to build things from items lying around your house, just like a NASA scientist.
Remember last week when we celebrated the anniversary of the Moon Landing? Today, astronauts will launch the Perseverance Rover to Mars. To watch the countdown and launch online, visit https://mars.nasa.gov/mars2020/.
