SAMPLE SESSION 4

SAMPLE SESSION 4

Living the Law, and So Many Seeds

LIVING THE LAW, AND SO MANY SEEDS NAMES AND WHERE THEY COME FROM In this Session, the girls will hear the first part of Chapter 2, where fireflies Lucy and Ace are on headlight duty. You might like to know that Lucy and Ace are named for luciferin and luciferase, the two substances that help fireflies produce light. Luciferin and luciferase are ?big words,? but little girls might find them funny, too. They?re a good entry point to talking with the girls about their own names, what they mean, and why they were given them. If you have time to do this during today?s gathering, great. If not, save the idea for another time.
