Faith In Action: Planning Our Power of Fire

Activity time: 30 minutes

Materials for Activity

  • Newsprint, markers, and tape

Preparation for Activity

  • This activity is designed to continue the activity begun in Session 9. Research the project the group selected in the previous session. Prepare to share information about the needs, opportunities, and possible logistical arrangements for the project.

Description of Activity

This Faith in Action activity follows on the Exploring Ways to Exercise Fire Power activity in Session 5, as part of the four-session block which includes identifying a way to exercise air power, planning how to exercise air power, engaging in the activity and reflecting on the experience. After selecting an air power activity, the next step is to plan exactly how your project will take place. Who will take part - do you need to invite anyone not present to take part? What supplies will you need? How much time do you anticipate the project will take? When is the best time to undertake your project? Who needs to be contacted in order for your project to move forward? What resources do you have available to bring to bear on the project? What resources will you need to bring in? What are the steps in bringing your project to completion?

After the session, discuss the plan with the director of religious education and determine how to communicate the details to families.

Including All Participants

Make sure that your plan is as inclusive as possible of the differing needs and abilities of your group.
