  • Look in their book at pages 10-11 for more ideas.
  • Explain energy efficient means using less energy to do something.  Ask girls to name a more energy efficient way to do one of the things they first mentioned.

  • Ask girls what guests they might like to talk about energy.
  • Have the girls sit in a circle.  Explain that each girl has her own unique personal energy and it’s something she can use to be a good leader.  Ask each girl to pick and say one word that expresses her energy to be a good leader.
