FINAL CELEBRATION

Celebrating Me/ Celebrating Us

The Juniors start thinking about all the roles available in the world for women and girls. They choose roles they?d like for themselves, play a game of charades of active roles for women, and make a Team Prop Box. The Juniors explore the many roles available to them and start to learn about stereotypes. They use a Casting Call Log to see what all the women around them are up to. They sketch how they picture various roles, and role-play stereotypical gender roles they might see in their lives. The Juniors reach out to women in their community to explore all the roles available to them. The girls add to their Casting Call Log, and plan to meet with some of the women from their log to learn more about what they do. The Juniors learn more about the roles women play in real life and in the media. The girls talk to the women they invited and explore ads for messages about roles girls and boys are asked to play. They earn their Reach Out! award. The Juniors team up to create an inspiring story about stereotypes that sends others a call to action for stopping stereotyping. They decide who can benefit most from hearing their story, and they choose a creative way to tell it. The Juniors get busy turning their story into their chosen form of creative expression. The girls choose and practice the roles they will play when they present their story to educate and inspire an audience. The Juniors take the spotlight and tell their story. The girls ask their audience to pledge to join them in stopping stereotypes. The Juniors earn their Speak Out! award. The Juniors explore what beauty means to them, how they see it themselves, and how it informs their story. The girls use their imaginations to create self-portraits, and host an Arty Party to exhibit of their art work. The Juniors explore how having healthy bodies supports them in taking on roles, and how they can support and appreciate their bodies. The girls hold a dance party and plan their final celebration. The Juniors celebrate their roles and accomplishments along the journey and gain the courage to continue trying on new roles throughout life. They earn their Try Out! award.
