WAVES & REEFS teaches pre-k to grade 5 children the skills of communing with all that is alive around us. Continuing to honor the interconnected web of existence, this curriculum focuses on the water ecosystems of South Florida, the ancestral home of the Tequesta and Calusa, and the lands of the Miccosukee and Seminole people. Our curriculum consultant and guest teacher, Betty Osceola, aids in our aspirations to become better stewards of our land.
Sunday morning explorations, are designed to be hands-on and inter-disciplinary. Often enjoyed outside on the five-acre campus of UUMiami, classes will explore multiple ways of knowing: through science, art, tradition, music and movement!
Field learning experiences will provide whole family outings to help us know both the wild and historical parts of this corner of the world, hopefully developing our own sense of land stewardship shared from our indigenous neighbors.
