Thinking Day Resources for Girl Scouts

Thinking Day is such a wonderful opportunity to get girls involved in learning by letting them research a country & share their new knowledge with other troops. But it isn't always easy to get information on the "little used" countries...or to get new information on the countries everyone seems to choose.

With that in mind, I am collecting web links to help solve this problem. The original list came from the WAGGGS-L list serve (If it was your post, please e-mail me & I will give credit.) I will continue searching for links to various countries & would love submissions from anyone else. Let me know what you have found useful!

These links are still being checked to see if the addresses are typed correctly & that the sites are still up. If you find a dead link, let me know!
