When my girls were younger, both joined Girl Scouts. It was a group activity where they developed friendships and learned about subjects ranging from horses to insects to helping otheres. The troops were open to girls in our elementary school.
Our troop had a troop leader, but in order to spread the load each mom took charge of a “try-its.” The try-it badges were worn on the girls’ vests in recognition of completing tasks in a central theme. I chose the theme of language and cultures of the world. I had several activities planned, but wanted to find something visual to enhance my lesson plan. If you are a teacher or work with young children, you know how easily you can lose everyone’s attention.
I wish I had Ni Hao, Kai-Lan: Kai-Lan’s Great Trip to China when I taught about languages in other countries. My son loved this DVD, so I know the Girl Scouts would have loved it, too!
Ni Hao, Kai-lan: Kai-lan’s Great Trip to China
Join Kai-lan and her friends Rintoo, Tolee and Ho Ho in an adventure-filled, fun and educational trip to China in this exciting double-length feature episode. Kai-lan gets a phone call from her favorite great aunt (and YeYe’s sister), Gu nai nai, inviting us to come to China and meet a baby panda! During their journey, Kai-lan and her friends are amazed by all the new things that they see. This playful and upbeat show introduces Mandarin Chinese in a fun, interactive way, also helping children to develop emotional and social skills.

Hmmm. It’s always nice to see strong female characters on tv. I love Sandra Oh’s character on Grey’s Anatomy, even though I don’t watch the show anymore.

How about June Cleaver. She put up with Wally and the Beave’s antics while doing housework dressed like she was going to the Opera. email@example.com

Kinda weird but I’ll say Reba from the Reba show. We always watch the reruns and she was such a strong, capable, moral influence for her family.

I am picking Olivia Benson on Law and Order SVU,tough job,works and keeps up with the boys!
My husband always laughs at me for this, but I like Claire Huxtable from the Cosby Show. She was strong, educated, witty, and loving.

I think Orprah is a strong female on tv for girls to look up to

My favorite strong TV/film role model is Selena Gomez. (Alex Russo – Wizards of Waverly Place) She rescues animals from around the world and she cares what happens to them. She is a very bright and sweet young lady. I also rescue animals in my community.
Jennifer Garner as Sydney in “Alias”!
My favorite strong TV role model is Pa Ingalls from Little House on the Prarie.
