Introduction, Session 6: Lifecycles

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

Awaken to the universe's simple gift of the butterfly. Watch with fascination and joy as a jeweled treasure glides by and gently touches your soul. — Kristen D'Angelo, freelance writer, blogger, and photographer

This session introduces the mystery and wonder of life cycles through the concept of metamorphosis. This age group is fascinated by the "magic" that turns a caterpillar into a butterfly, or a tadpole into a frog. The central story, "A Caterpillar Grows Up," describes the awe and wonder one family feels when they watch the metamorphosis of a cabbage worm into a butterfly. For kinesthetic learners, the children embody the life cycle of a frog. The Faith in Action activity introduces the concept of "citizen scientists," offered in the book, Citizen Scientists, by Unitarian Universalist Loree Griffin Burns.
