Berry Students Get to Know a Book for Bronze Award Project

Girl Scout Troop 128 members Sophie, Natalie and Madison, students at Berry Middle School, recently earned the Girl Scout Bronze Award for their project Get to Know a Book. The girls worked with their reading coach to decide how to help students at their school become better readers. The girls made a graph showing the parts of a book, and students will add their own examples to this graph throughout the year. The girls also made a timeline with Caldecott books for kindergarten through second graders, and Newberry books for third through fifth grades. They read each book and wrote summaries to interest students in reading the books.

The Girl Scout Bronze Award is the highest award a Girl Scout Junior (fourth and fifth grades) can earn. This award recognizes that a Girl Scout Junior has gained the leadership and planning skills required to follow through with a project that makes a positive difference in her community.
