3rd-5th Grade

Toolbox of Faith
 

Toolbox of Faith (from UUA's Tapestry of Faith curricula) invites third-fifth grade participants to reflect on the qualities of our Unitarian Universalist faith, such as integrity, courage, and love, as tools they can use in living their lives and building their own faith. Each of the 16 sessions uses a tool as a metaphor for an important quality of our faith such as reflection (symbolized by a mirror), flexibility (duct tape), and justice (a flashlight).
 

Our 3rd-5th Grade Class follows the Way School Sunday School model; a typical month has two grade-level classes, one Children's Chapel and one Social Action lesson.
