Programme Hints - Brownies do their Best - Fishing Game

Activity: Fishing Game


Brownie Section

Time needed

20 minutes

Learning Goal

To enhance members’ impression on the Promise and Law and to remind them to practice in life.


Make small paper notes about the Promise and Law of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts and combine each note with a paper clip. Then, make a fishing rod by rope and magnet.


Distribute notes and fishing rod to members. Members compete to “fish” the notes and combine them into meaning sentences.


After the end of game, leaders help explain the meaning of the Promise and Law to the team.



I promise to do my best

to be true to myself

my God/Faith

my country, and the country in which I live

to help others

and to keep the Brownie Guide Law

I will care for my home, my community and myself

I will do a Good Turn everyday


Which elements of the method are used, and how?

☑ My path, my pace – Members will get inspiration from the Promise and Law. They can practice in life in their own way.


☑ Learning by doing – Members memorize and keep reminding themselves the meaning of the Promise during the fishing game. This is the process of self-learning and self-exploration.


☑ Connecting with my world – These Promise and Law are introduced by the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts. They aim to train and equip Girl Guides with knowledge, techniques and attitude. Members can then develop a caring and positive attitude in life.

How does the method give youth members a chance to take the lead?

The Girl Guides Association emphasizes teamwork. The Promise and Law help to strengthen the sense of belonging to the team, which is the basis of Guiding Movement.

How can you connect this activity to the values of Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting?

Members practice the Promise and Law during the activity, especially on “be true to myself my God/Faith”, “help others” and “keep the Brownie Guide Law”. They also improve their understanding on the Promise and Law.
