NEW! History Maven Girl Scout Patch

Embroidered Girl Scout Patch with a carriage image.

The LIM is excited to announce the launch of our new History Maven patch for Girl Scouts! This patch can be earned through guided and self-guided experiences and can be tailored for several Girl Scout levels. Whether you are looking to explore history through the lens of 19th-century transportation or learn about extraordinary women for Women’s History Month and beyond, this patch can be your passport to adventure.

Daisies & Brownies:

A Day at the Nassakeag Schoolhouse (Guided)

Become a student in our authentic one-room schoolhouse! Scouts will practice Spencerian Script, solve arithmetic problems on slate boards, and play 19th-century games. Explore aspects of school life from long ago through primary sources, object-based inquiry, and hands-on experiences. 

The World Before Cars (Guided and Self-Guided)

What is transportation and why is it important to us? How do people and things travel from one place to another, and how was this accomplished in the past? Scouts will learn about some of the exciting vehicles in the museum’s world-renowned collection and begin to understand why they were built and how they worked. They will also learn about the importance of horses and horse care in the 1800s followed by conceptualizing a plan for their own vehicle in an art activity. 

Juniors & Cadettes: 

Vehicles for Change: Elizabeth Jennings and The Fight for Equality on NYC’s  Streetcars (Guided)

How do we change unjust systems? Scouts will learn about Elizabeth Jennings and her fight for equal access on public transportation in New York City in the mid-1800s.  Explore museum artifacts, analyze historic documents, and examine the museum’s 1885  streetcar to understand the importance of transportation within communities, as well as the role it has played in social justice movements. 

Riding into History: Women and Carriages (Guided and Self-Guided)

Discover the women who literally took the path less traveled by exploring carriages in the collection used by and designed for women. Through gallery viewing scouts will learn about women in carriage history and how these trailblazers made lasting impacts on their communities. Scouts will then have a chance to design their own carriage inspired by one of their favorite women who has made an impact on history, or who is still making history today.
