Hi, it’s Sis84 here and I’m going to talk to you about how recently I have been talking to Scouts from different countries. This is to work towards my world challenge badge to get me my gold award. I had the help of 84’s jamboree contacts to do this.
I talked to 7 people from all over the world from America to Brazil to China. I talked to them about scouting, themselves, and the countries where they live. It was fun to learn about their lives and countries.
I learnt many things about how scouting works where they come from as well as other things about what they are like as a person as well. Some things I learnt were that they have different names and ages to UK sections of scouting. (so our Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers, and Network were different.) I also learnt that in some countries in Guiding they allow boys whereas in the UK Guiding is girls only.
I talked to these people across roughly a whole weekend. I found out how different states do scouting differently. As well as how other countries do scouting differently. Some of the things I learnt were very interesting. Here are some things I learnt:
- The amount of people in their groups is very different – one person I spoke to only had 5 people in their group
- Most of their uniforms are very similar with only a few changes to make them different
- Each place has slightly different badges and awards
- They do different things during their meetings – and their meetings are different lengths and happen at different intervals.
- The age limits for their different sections change slightly as well as their names.
Its Sis84 here and I’m going to show you how to have an awesome photoshoot at home.
Colour bombs –
Place different coloured ground up chalk into different plastic bags.
Swirl it around you or drop it to create cool effects.
Cd and flashlight –
Shine at flashlight on a cd and reflect the rainbow onto your face or surface for a cool rainbow effect.
Fairy lights –
Focus on the subject in the photo to blur out the string lights and make a cool look.,
Place them in the photo in different ways to make a different effect.
Try with coloured or white lights.
Try opening them different amounts creating different shadows and lights.
Blow it towards the camera, spread it on the lends or chuck it up into the air.
Try with confetti or sequins but be weary it may get messy.
Choose many different outfits to add a slight change to your photos.
Hope you create a cool photoshoot of your own at home during these stressful times. It is a fun thing to do when you are bored or at the weekend. Get all the family involved.
