Thinking about the Law

Do your Guides truly understand all parts of the Law?


  1. Give each Patrol a copy of the Guide Law. Ask them to discuss each part of the Law and to come up with some examples of how they could keep each one.
  2. Bring all the Patrols back together and have a group discussion, allowing each Patrol to feed back to everyone on their discussion.
  3. Once the group discussion has finished, get the girls to go back into their Patrols and put the parts of the Law in order of priority.
  4. Bring the Patrols back together and discuss each Patrol’s order of priority.
  5. As a unit, see if you can agree on the order. Discuss the lower-priority parts and suggest ways that they can be kept.
