In "World of Wonder," a Tapestry of Faith program
All through the long winter, I dream of my garden. On the first day of spring, I dig my fingers deep into the soft earth. I can feel its energy, and my spirits soar. — Helen Hayes, American actress
This session introduces the abundance and diversity of plants through the central story "Noah's Wife: The Story of Naamah." Kinesthetic learners will enjoy embodying the life cycle of a seed. The children learn "The Garden Song" and plant seedlings to take home. The Faith in Action activity involves creating or maintaining a garden, either on-site at your congregation or in partnership with a local community garden. Alternate Activity 2, Planting for Wildlife, invites children to make a lasting contribution to the congregation's landscaping by planting perennials; advance planning required.
