Clara Barton K-3rd Grade Class

UU Superheroes

A values-based curriculum for Unitarian Universalist children ages 6-9 In a world where so often "might makes right" and at an age when they are beginning to form values that will take them through their lives, your children are about to meet super heroes from the Bible who were, as the curriculum theme song states, "powerful with brains and even stronger in [their] heart[s]."
The goals are:

To introduce children to the stories of Unitarians, Universalists, and Unitarian Universalists who have acted with courage and wisdom in their attempts to lead their lives fully and make the world a better place for others.

To show how the lives of these people confirm the principles which we, as Unitarian Universalists, strive to promote. This is “biography as theology”.

To learn some of the traditions of our UU faith movement and our individual congregations.

To encourage the children to lead their own lives fully and to use their own positive "super powers" as they interact with the world around them, and as they do so, to grow both spiritually and ethically.
