  • *Sound Maps – Eco Pak Challenge
  • Have each girl find a place to stand outdoors.  Ask the girls to close their eyes and listen carefully to their surroundings.  After 1 minute, ask the girls to share what they heard and discovered.  Girls can get a different perspective of the diversity in their surrounding habitat.  Sounds heard in the city will be much different than those heard in the forest.
