Activity 5: Speak Up to Save Energy (10 minutes), Session 13: Green Energy

In "World of Wonder," a Tapestry of Faith program

Materials for Activity

  • Newsprint from Activity 3, Stand Up to Save Energy
  • Cardstock for bookmarks; poster board for posters
  • Markers or crayons

Preparation for Activity

  • Cut cardstock into bookmark size strips (approximately 8.5 x 2 inches).
  • Post newsprint from Activity 3 where all can see.

Description of Activity

Children make bookmarks or posters with tips for conserving energy. This will help them remember the energy saving ideas they "stood up for" in Activity 3 and enable them to share the ideas with friends and family.

Tell the group that they can create a bookmark or poster with some (or all) of the energy-saving ideas from Activity 3. Have participants choose whether to write and illustrate one tip or create a list of ideas.

As writing ability varies, invite children to dictate their ideas to leaders.

Optional: Create a display of posters (and bookmarks) to share with the congregation at coffee hour.
