Playing the Past

Dream up a character: a girl or woman who lived in another time period. Maybe a poodle-skirt-wearing Girl Scout from the 1950s, a Wild West cowgirl, a medieval duchess, or a Japanese princess from long ago? You can be someone who really existed or a historical woman from your imagination. Give yourself a new name and get ready to live history!
1. Decide who you are

When I’ve earned this badge, I’ll know how girls of the past lived, worked, and played.

  1. We visited Centre Furnace Mansion for a tour. We had a dress up party, each girl brought a snack from her character and taught us a game from her time period.
