CLiF Notes: A Curriculum for Families and Small Groups
CLiF Notes is a lively, easy to use, explicitly Unitarian Universalist curriculum. Each week, you get opening and closing words, a centering exercise, a story, activities, and discussion questions. Sessions explore both Unitarian Universalism and other religions of the world, and use stories, art, drama, worship, games and more to help children explore their own beliefs, the beliefs of other religions, and what it means to be a Unitarian Universalist. CLiF Notes does presume the availability of computer access (though not necessarily during the sessions themselves).
While designed for families or multi-age small groups, CLiF Notes can be adapted for use in age-graded classrooms, or used by churches which have two Sunday services, with a smaller program at one of the service times, or for programs which incorporate monthly worship for children of all ages.
A resource for families to use each month—maybe even by putting it right on the fridge! It includes information about a UU who contributed to society, ideas for putting our principles into action and support for nurturing the spirit of our younger family members.
