Ok well my name is Sam, aka Little Owl to my brownies.
Im 16 and have very nearly finished my qualificatoin. Apart from discussing some sections with my mentor i only have a few other things to do.
One of which is Modue 1, Part 3: a.
"Plan and carry out an activity that helps unit members gain an understanding of the promise."

I can think of plenty of ideas to help our new brownies learn the promise but im not sure on goingin understanding.

Has anyone got any ideas or suggestion of activites i could do with a few of our new brownies for this part?

Many thanks
Sam

for part of our Rainbow 20th Birthday badge they had to come up with 20 ways they could keep thier promise, you could do something like that with the Brownies.

I use a Promise Flower. I could post the template. You have the stem for the 'I Promise' - the centre of Guiding, 3 leaves for the 3 parts of the promise, and 5 petals ( the 5 essentials) to write ideas of how they can keep their Promise

i did the same with my rainbows, we used a big sheet of paper and wrote down what each bit means and then how we could keep the promise, and they came up with some fantastic ideas which was really good :)

for the learning the promise bit i typed the promise out and cut it up and laminated each word and the rainbows had to put it in order... again, worked really well, but that is certainly a rainbow activity because it was pretty easy!!

Variation on this, using the laminated words. Distribute all the words, mixed up. The girls have to stand up and say their word in the correct order. Some words are duplicated so you get 2 girls at times. Start slow, and then see how quick they can get.:D

I've been doing the new Brownies since I started last September - and it's developed. We go through the Brownie story, discuss the Promise and the Law, and I think from next term I'm going to add a variant on the Promise tree from the Adventure book (So they can come up with suggestions of how they can do their best to keep the promise), will probably do a template myself for them to fill in...

Does "gaining an understanding of the promise" include activities about what a promise is, and how and why to keep it? That's what I'm hoping to use as mine...

That's what I thought, Fluffyowl! Actually I had a whole promise meeting planned, and it was going to have sections on each bit of the promise, but it, er, didn't happen...
