Have you ever wondered how the income from Girl Scout cookie sales is distributed to the individual girls, to their Troops, or to the organization? In this activity students learn a little about the organization of the Girl Scouts, try to draw a diagram to represent how all of the organizational components are related, compare the price per ounce of Girl Scout cookies to national brands and work out what percent and what dollar amount of each box of cookies is contributed to the the various segments of the Girl Scouts program.
