Faith CoLab: Tapestry of Faith: World of Wonder: A Program on the Seven Principles of Unitarian Universalism for Grades K-1

Alternate Activity 2: Green Sanctuary Tour

Part of World of Wonder

Activity time: 20 minutes

Materials for Activity

  • Optional: Scraps for composting

Preparation for Activity

  • If your congregation has a Green Sanctuary team or committee, invite them to lead this tour of the grounds. If not, prepare a list of things to see that demonstrate care for the earth such as a compost bin, garden, recycle bins, compact fluorescent light bulbs, etc.
  • Recruit a volunteer to take pictures or video of the tour.

Description of Activity

Tour the congregation's building and grounds for signs of "Green Sanctuary" type projects. If your congregation participates in the Green Sanctuary program, it is ideal to have leaders of that group on hand to talk about it. If not, use the list of congregational green actions you created before the session. If the congregation has a compost bin, have the children take food scraps to "feed" it.
