Roots Class (pre-k to first) w/Laura:
Today in the Roots class we read a story about a “no gifts” birthday party. We discussed how it would be hard to not receive gifts at your birthday party, but that the gifts are not what make a party fun. Also that it would be nice to give the gifts to children who had less. As an activity, we sorted some of Laura’s compost, recycling, and trash and learned the differences between them.
Seedlings Class (2nd to 5th) w/Piaf:
This week we discussed how the Unitarians and Universalists came to together to form our UU tradition and how they had to figure out a set of agreements, or covenant, for how they would be together. We learned how our UU principles have gone from 6 to 7 to our current 8. Finally, we created a class covenant, and used toy animals to act out being out of covenant and being called back into covenant.
Wildflower Youth Group (Middle & High school) w/Solveij:
Today we talked about how the youth define work and the victories of the labor movement.
