God the Maker Unit
➜ Book 1, pp.81-128.
The God the Maker unit aims to nurture and deepen children’s natural sense of wonder and thanks for God’s beautiful world.
There are also opportunities to prepare for a Harvest Festival by telling the story of bread (or other local produce) and to spend one session on an extended activity in which children are encouraged to respond to God’s call for us all to become active helpers in caring for God’s world.
