Alternate Activity 3: Challenge Question (5 minutes), Session 11: Touching All

In "Riddle and Mystery," a Tapestry of Faith program

Materials for Activity

  • Optional: Newsprint, markers and tape

Preparation for Activity

  • Optional: Write the challenge question on newsprint, and post.

Description of Activity

Challenge questions guide a deeper inquiry for especially thoughtful individuals and groups. For this session, ask:

What responsibility do UUs have to mosquitoes?

Extend discussion with these additional questions:

  • Does thinking about the balance of nature change your answer in any way?
  • Do any species depend on mosquitoes as food? (Fish, birds, bats, frogs, toads and some plants are among the mosquito's many predators.)
  • Who or what should decide how many mosquitoes there are—people? Nature? God? Birds? A combination of these things?
  • Who or what should decide how many dogs there are? Or frogs? Or people?
