The Gerri, Respect Authority Daisy petal is the hot pink/magenta petal usually at the 7:00 position on the Daisy flower.
For the badges released in 2011, scouts must complete all of the activities listed to earn the badge.
Activity #1: Enjoy the Story and Talk about ItEdit
- Community connections. Have the girls in a circle. One girl has a ball of yarn and, holding on to the end of it, she name one person in authority, then tosses the ball of yarn to another girl. The new girl does the same, holding onto her spot in the yarn string. Repeat until there is a giant web representing the community that helps keep everyone safe.
Activity #2: Visit a Community Authority FigureEdit
- Invite a local police officer. We had a police officer from the Montgomery County Police Department talked to the girls about respecting authority. He also gave them a tour of his police car.
Activity #3: Practice Respecting AuthorityEdit
