Bring a Book – Online Meeting Idea

This is an idea for an online meeting (although it would also work in person)… before the meeting, ask each girl to pick out a favourite book to introduce to the other girls in her unit.  The book can be fiction, non-fiction, graphic novel, biography or whatever else she wants.

Introduce your Book

Give each girl a few minutes to tell what book she brought and why she picked it.

Bring Your Own Book

This is a game based on the card game Bring Your Own Book The game leader reads a prompt and all the players have 1 or 2 minutes to find a word or phrase in their own book to match the prompt. Depending on the size of your group, the players can take turns being the judge (the judge does not play that round) or everyone can vote on the best answer. The best answer can be either the most appropriate or the funniest.

Example prompts:

  • Something heard at camp after midnight
  • A new Guide law
  • A weird thing to pack for a hike
  • Something a Guider might say after a meeting
  • The name of a campfire song
  • A new Guide badge
  • A skill you didn’t expect to learn in Guides
  • Your camp name
  • etc.


My Local Community

Now that the public and separate school boards have started sending out work for my Pathfinders and Rangers to complete at home, I’m going to start generating at home meetings every two weeks to give the girls a bit more time to work on them. This weeks meeting is from the Local Communities Theme.


For an opening I put together a kahoot! quiz on the origins of street names in Toronto.  I originally wanted to run it live during our online meeting but that didn’t work out.  Still the girls can complete it on their own time.  If I had known they would be doing it on their own I might have used Google Forms instead.


This weeks at home meeting activities includes a community photo bingo, favourite places in your neighbourhood and an urban planning activity.
