Faith In Action: Energy Inventory, Session 10: The Gift Of Protection

In "Wonderful Welcome," a Tapestry of Faith program

Materials for Activity

  • Notebooks and pens or pencils

Preparation for Activity

  • Find out from an energy company in your community how to conduct an energy survey in your congregation. Or, schedule a time for an energy company auditor to come lead the group in conducting an energy survey.
  • Engage additional adult volunteers to help conduct the energy survey with the children.

Description of Activity

Have participants walk around the congregation and find out how much energy is used by lights, computers, and other appliances — including toys. Make note of all the items that use energy sources such as electricity, oil, or batteries. Explain that all energy comes from the Earth and we do not want to use it all up. Help the children talk about what it means to save energy and why saving energy is an important part of protecting our Earth.

Including All Participants

Make sure any walking tour of the congregation or other building is accessible to children with mobility, sight or other limitations.
