Overview
Girl Scout Daisies are in grades K-1 and meet in a nurturing, inclusive environment. They go on trips, learn about nature and science, and explore the arts and their communities. Girl Scout Daisies can also earn Learning Petals and receive participation patches.

Government
Brownie Girl Scout Ring
Use the Brownie Girl Scout ring for planning activities and trips, making up rules, assignments or tasks, setting budgets, and other occasions when the troop needs to work and make decisions.

Girls should take turns being the Brownie Girl Scout Ring "leader". This girl makes sure that everyone gets a turn to talk, and it is orderly (or in order).

Each girl should have a chance to share in planning, problem-solving, and decision-making.

Set time limits. Young girls can sit and listen for long periods of time.

Use pictures, charts, handbooks and other materials to help girls make decisions.

Give girls a chance to examine choices available.

In the beginning, leaders may want to record plans and keep track of money, but they should allow girls to do these jobs themselves as they become familiar with the tasks.

Daisy Girl Scout Circle

Use the Daisy Girl Scout Circle to make formal decisions about activities. A circle should last no more than 10 minutes for girls of this age.

Leaders ask girl to share ideas, listen to one another, and make troop decisions by consensus or voting.

Leaders can also present a list of ideas, have girls rank or choose among them, and help girls follow through on their decisions.

Brainstorming is one way to elicit ideas. After the brainstorming process is completed, a leader can help guide the discussion with questions when girls' ieas or decisions are unsafe or unworkable.

Leaders can help girls understand that learning from mistakes can be a valuable experience.
Girl Scouts Brownies work together, earn Girl Scout Brownie Awards, and explore their community. Friendship, fun, and age-appropriate activities begin at the Girl Scout Brownie meeting and move out to the community and wider world.
