Resources for Sunday RE 

We will post the activities and resources that are used during Sunday morning RE services over zoom while in-person services are suspended.  Check out all the activities we're doing for RE during Covid-19!

We read The Big Orange Splot by Daniel Manus Pinkwater, and then we discussed how each of us is unique and different and important (principal #1).  We compared how we are similar and different from people in our family.  Kids are encouraged to complete the Similar/Different worksheet on how they are similar and different from their friends.  And, each kid can make their own house to match their dreams--just like Mr. Plumbean did in the book--by using the house building kit.  To build the house, print two copies of the PDF file.  Cut out the 4 sides of the house (be sure to leave the folding tabs on!).  Decorate and color the house the way YOU want it--have it reflect how you are unique and individual. Then, put glue on the folding tabs and glue the 4 sides together (it will still be a bit flopping, and that is okay).  For the roof, take one regular sized sheet of paper and fold it in half and place it on your house! Your done! Take a picture of it and send it to Sarah (along with the worksheet and anything else you want to show off) at dre@mvuuc.org

We are reading Say Something by Peter H. Reynolds. This book is all about the many ways we can use our voices, hands, and ideas to create change in the world! Kids are encouraged to download the Say Something Activity Book after service!

We read A Prayer for the Earth: The Story of Naamah, Noah's Wife by Sandy Eisenberg Sasso, illustrated by Bethanne Andersen.  We discussed which animals on the ark would have been particularly helpful to the plants, and how the story connects to UU Principles (#7).  We then learned about the parts of a plant and parts of a leaf.  After service, kids can complete the parts of a leaf worksheet and garden coloring activity.  I also found this fun "who am I" plant game that parents can download and play with their kids later this week.  And, if you have a chance to take a walk this week, check out this really great botany scavenger hunt!
