Canadian Guiding Lapbook


Canadian Guiding Badge

Here is the continuation of the World Guiding Lapbook.  A second folder was added to the original World Guiding lapbook to make room for Canadian Guiding badge work.  It mostly covers the part about finding 10 facts about Canadian Girl Guides history. {However, World and Canadian content spills through both sides of  the lapbook}

 
 World Guiding and Canadian Guiding 
Badges Lapbook

Ten facts about GGC in pictures!
Lady Baden-Powell facts Wheel
You can see I added pictures on coloured paper {sticky notes from Dollarama...in neon colours, which I must say are back from the 80's!} and created peek-a-boo facts underneath.  This allows room for more pictures.

The front cover
I had a bunch of these stickers left over from 2010.  They were issued to GGC Units for the 100th Anniversary!  They add lots of colour and can also describe things that we do in Girl Guides. {You can see a pocket was created...purely by accident..that is the beauty of lapbooks, they all turn out differently!}
  Lapbooking is an activity that offers learning in a fun and creative way!  The girls get a Girl Guide History lesson but they see it as crafting!

    I love this idea! Is it feasible to do it with a large Guide Unit (approx 30 girls?) How long would it take to assemble assuming pieces were all pre-printed and sorted for them?
    Would you please send me the files you have, I would love to do this activity.

    1. Hi Guider Charlene. This was an inexpensive activity for my group because I had access to free colour printing for all the info...and only half as many girls in my group as yours. I purchased a large box of file folders on sale about 4 years ago and still have a ton left to use for future lapbooking {I also reused old file folders when I first started doing this activity}. The cost of this activity depends on the colour copies, file folders, glue sticks, and cardstock. In regards to how long it takes to complete...if almost everything is pre-cut and you explain each item as you give it out then I would say 1 1/2 hours to complete the lapbook. Keep in mind that the Girl Guides in War time layered book and Thinking Day passport were their own separate meetings. I usually do the lapbooking over 2 or 3 meetings but have other activites planned such as a game or whatever to break up the meeting. Send me your email {my email address is in my profile}and I will send you the "pile of files" lol...there are about 27 now! Thanks for your comment and looking forward to hearing back from you!

  19. Hi Lee Ann I have a unit of new girls to Guiding (Pathfinders) and this would be a perfect intro. And when they are finished they could take and share with the younger girls. So they Pile O FIles would be perfect. There are a lot of great ideas on your blog thank you for sharing.
    Thank you very much. Fran guiderfran@gmail.com

    P.S. I tried to access your other site and it is not found. Just thought you should know
