Grade 6-8

The Lodestone curriculum offers "Tough Topics and Tons of Fun". The group will explore four main topics over the year: Money, Race, Death and Unitarian Universalism. The goal of Lodestone is to magnetize the Middle School through fun and deep, teachable moments. ChUUrchcraft uses the popular app Minecraft as a vehicle for  processing learned information on world religions. A building with multiple rooms is created and supplied to the class.  As the class learns about a world religion, part of each class is dedicated to designing a room within the building, devoted to the practice of that religion.  At the end of the year, the class will have created a building with rooms devoted to the practice of many religions, supplementing their engagement in Neighboring Faiths in alternate years.
