Introduction, Session 16: Using Our Senses of Wonder

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

Wisdom begins in wonder. — Socrates, Greek philosopher

One of the most important goals of the World of Wonder program is for the children to engage directly with nature. This culminating session provides a shared outdoor experience. Consult with the religious educator to make the necessary arrangements for a field trip, including recruiting adult volunteers; you may wish to invite parents to come with their child. Travel time is not estimated in this session. Factor it into your plans.

The Alternate Activities are designed to be done indoors if it is not possible to go on a field trip or if the weather does not cooperate. Use the Opening activity, Activity 1, Earth Ball Appreciations, and the Closing Activity, and replace the 35 minute "Wonder Walk" with Alternate Activities 1-4.

Note that many of the program rituals have been modified for this session. There is no story; a brief review of the program's stories occurs in the Closing.
