River's Edge Curriculum specializes in multi-aged, interactive curriculum, resulting in resources that creatively and relevantly connect children to Christ.
During the five lesson iGo Green Kid's Camp/VBS, kids will learn that taking care of the earth is a way to love God and to love others. Fun skits, game show trivia and environmental activities will give them an awareness of the world God created. Bible stories, lab demonstrations and small group activities will teach an appreciation for all that He has created. And finally kids will be given an opportunity to act on that appreciation by using recycled materials to make crafts, create exciting games or perform environmental experiments, participating in or giving toward projects to help those marginalized by abuse of the world and making commitments to care for God's creation through obedience, gratitude, respect and justice.
The lessons, three hours in length, each contain a large group time. Following that time, rotations including environmental projects, experiments, small group discussion, crafts, snacks, games and bible memory reinforce learning during the group time. Optional activities allow this unit to be stretched to an all day event or overnight camp.
iGo Green can be used in various ways: weekly children's church, camps, outreach, and VBS. Also included are PowerPoint presentations to complement each lesson.
