No Joke! Girl Scouts Are Aligned with Common Core


The Girl Scouts of America will now be Common Core aligned! This is for real.  Common Core standards are a set of standards that entrench the federal government into every aspect of every child’s education in this country, into every school, into every home, and now into every girl scout’s program.


This is from the site:

The content of all Girl Scout national proficiency badges and journeys have been correlated by grade level to national Common Core Standards21st Century Skills standards, Financial Literacy education standards, and curriculum such as Health and PE, Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies learning objectives for all 50 states and the District of Columbia.


To find out how badges and journeys support state and national curriculum standards, use the drop-down menus to choose the badge or journey series, then choose the grade level and your state (or national standard).

You can click on the girl scout level: Daisy, Brownie, Junior Scout, Junior Cadette, Junior Senior, Scout Ambassador and then you click on badges or three journeys, and you can do it for every state.

I’m so not kidding. check it out here.
