This year's FLL Project is "Animal Allies" and Team 7407 C.A.K.E. B.A.T.T.E.R.S. picked the Zebra as their animal as this is a favorite animal of one of the team members. As we consulted our resident expert we found that the zebra population is shrinking in Africa. Further investigation we found out that the Africa Ranchers livestock and the zebra are wanting to inhabit the same land and unfortunately the zebra is loosing the battle. So our quest was to find a use for the zebra.
Girl Scout Brownies are in second and third grades (around ages 6-9). and earn triangular shaped Brownie Girl Scout "Try-Its". Try-Its are designed to introduce girls to new activities and let them try it out— proficiency is not required or expected. Their uniform consists of a brown vest or sash, with green membership disks, and the Brownie Pin. They may also wear their sash or vest with a white shirt and khaki bottoms. GS Brownies use the Brownie Girl Scout Handbook and earn badges from the Try-Its for Brownie Girl Scouts book.
Unlike some of the other levels, the name Brownie is commonly used with Girl Scout/Girl Guide organizations around the world and has its origin from Brownies in the British Girl Guides.
