In "Sing to the Power," a Tapestry of Faith program
Participants explore the power of wind, a renewable energy resource which doesn't contribute to climate change, and use creativity to devise ways to harness non-polluting air power to move a penny across a table.
If the group is large enough, form teams. Encourage the children to exchange ideas and work together to design their wind-powered penny transport device. Show them the materials you have gathered and tell them their device can be powered only by their breath.
When everyone has completed their construction, have races to see who can get their penny across the table the fastest.
After the races, ask participants to reflect on the process:
Be ready to help children with fine-motor tasks, as needed to implement their ideas.
