God’s Blue Earth | Teaching Kids to Celebrate the Sacred Gifts of Water (Hammer & Blokland)
God’s Blue Earth: Teaching Kids to Celebrate the Sacred Gifts of Water is an ideal resource for elementary school-aged children and works best in small groups of six to eight children. Randy Hammer and Suzanne Blokland explain important ecological and faith concepts through fun activities, and each lesson is based on Biblical texts with water as a central theme. God’s Blue Earth includes six interactive, Christian-based lessons celebrating God’s sacred gift of water
