Curricula for 2016/17
World of Wonder (Tapestry of Faith)
By Alice Anacheka-Nasemann, Pat Kahn, and Julie Simon
Founded on the premise that direct experience in nature is essential to children’s physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual development, this program delves deep into our Unitarian Universalist seventh Principle.Time spent experiencing and exploring nature during the kindergarten and first grade years can set a pattern for the rest of children’s lives, bringing lasting openness to the wonder nature can spark. It instills respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part, and appreciation of its beauty, excitement, and mystery.
Toolbox of Faith (Tapestry of Faith)
By Katie Tweedie Covey
What tools does Unitarian Universalism offer for the challenges of life? Children discover what aspects of UU faith are helpful to them, developing a toolbox of faith. This curriculum invites participants to reflect on qualities of our faith, such as integrity, courage and love, as tools they can use in living their lives and building their own faith.
