While the children in grades K-5 participate in the Spring Project (Ecology Experiments), the 3&4 year olds and the middle schoolers will continue with the regular Sunday School curriculum.
3 and 4 year olds (Red Class), 2016-2017 — We Are Many, We Are One is a curriculum to introduce young children to age-appropriate diversity concepts in a supportive setting.
Middle School (gr. 6-8), there is a choice of two different classes:
- Violet group: Ecojustice (grade 6-8), 2016-2017 & 2017-2018 — This is a project-based program that includes projects relating to environmental justice, nature study, and campcraft. Projects may include urban/suburban farming and gardening, creating habitat for non-human organisms, learning how to cook outdoors, and studying environmental justice heroes like Rachel Carson and Cesar Chavez. There will be different projects each year, and this class may be repeated.
- Purple group: Neighboring Faith Communities (grades 7-8) — This middle school group will visit other places of worship, beginning with another UU congregation, moving through Jewish and Christian groups, and ending up with non-Western religions. Participants go on 6-8 field trips during the year, and sometimes have guest speakers from other faith traditions. There will be different field trips each year, and this class may be repeated.
