The Juliette Low Story & the Girl Scouts
(Divide the group into eight group; these will be Juliette Low, Georgia, Horses, London, Lord Baden-Powell, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts)

Sound Effects- (when they hear their names they stand up and make their sound. It's even cuter when they have to do an action as well)
       Little Girls -                     Stand and giggle
       Juliette Low -                  Curtsy and say, "Be my friend"
       Georgia-                          Wave and say, "Hi, y'all!"
       Horses-                           Stamp your feet and say, "Neighhhhhhh."
       Lord Baden-Powell-        Bow formally and say, "How d'ya do?"
       London-                          Sing, "London Bridge is Falling Down"
       Boy Scouts-                    Make Scout sign and say "Be prepared."
       Girl Scouts-                     Make Scout sign and say “On My Honor”

Once upon a time there was a little girl named Juliette Low who lived in Georgia and loved to ride horses. After she grew up she went to London where she met Lord Baden-Powell who founded the Boy Scouts. She was fascinated by the work he was doing. She studied with him awhile and decided to found a troop of Girl Scouts for the little girls who liked to ride horses in Georgia. So Juliette Low said good-bye to the Boy Scouts in London and came home with the ideas that Lord Baden-Powell gave her. She formed a group of little girls, who liked to ride horses and be together, into a troop of Girl Scouts. And they loved it so much that the idea spread and now there are Girl Scout troops all over the world.

Aren't we glad that a little girl named Juliette Low, from Georgia who liked horses went to London and met Lord Baden-Powell, the founder of the Boy Scouts, and came to start the wonderful world of Girl Scouts!
