Roots Class (pre-k to 1st grade) w/Laura:
In our lesson this week, the Roots class continued to follow the Growing Anti-racist UU’s curriculum. In Lesson 4, MY CHURCH, MY BELIEFS their attention is called to the UU church’s support for the “Black Lives Matter” movement. We then read the book “Loving” which tells the story that people of different shades were not always allowed to marry although they loved one another. We made buttons in shades of people and rainbows with the word “Love” on them to show that love is what matters.
Seedlings Class (2nd – 5th grade) w/Piaf:
Today, we focused on the 7th UU Principle and the interdependent web that makes up this planet and includes people, animals, plants, and all aspects of nature. We began with a fun yarn game where we created a giant web. Then, we crafted yarn weavings using paper plates and yarn to remind us how we are all connected.
Wildflower Youth Group (Middle & High School) w/Solveij:
Today the youth talked about what makes them feel welcome or unwelcomed in a space. They also came up with “ground rules” for youth-led facilitation of youth group meetings and discussed plans for the upcoming Coming of Age retreat at UBarU.
