actor 5 to look at blender and try and see.

Then notices that its not plugged in and show the cord. 

 

Scaler actor 4! You didn’t plug it in.

actor 5 lifting up nutri bullet and show audience the cord.

 

Can I use my nutri bullet without using electricity?

 

No Scaler actor 4, you have to plug it in and use electricity. The fruits will not blend inside without giving the nutri bullet power to spin. 

 

Allah has made energy so everything can work. 

 

Food gets cooked with heat energy from fire or electricity.

If you follow the sparkly energy laws which Allah has given us as a choice and the regular energy laws for which there is no choice, then you become a complete human.

STATIONS

 

Make a smoothie or watermelon juice  – Science – actor 2

compare spinning of blender to energy source – electricity. Take a look at electricity

Compare to earth spin- source is Allah no mistakes, no errors, 

We have consistency.

Energy law is needed for blender to work. 

Energy law is needed for earth to work. (Day n night)

 

How we know for sure we have day and night. Show with experiment how day and night is working. 

Globe and Torch. 

Energy laws of Allah, you cannot change. 

Earth uses energy to spin around and orbit. Earth gets energy from Allah to spin using energy laws. It can’t change. 

When Allah asks us to do tawaf around the Kaaba just like the spinning blender, spinning earth, spinning human, we spin around in the energy laws of Allah. This is a way to bring to awareness the sparkly energy law. 

By following Allah’s energy law and Allah’s sparkly energy law we become complete Human. 

 

Ride a bicycle or tricycle or scooter – Movement – actor 1

Kids get to see how law of gravity, law of cause and effect work. You put energy in, you move closer to goal. 

Also show how muscles legs at work using energy to move the leg. Go into the business of muscles and how they need fuel to push just as a car needs fuel to go forward. 

Fueled with food and knowledge and experience

Fuel of the heart with Quran – belief and action

You put energy from sparkly energy law into golden heart, you move closer and closer. 

How are we going to do that? Plan of action

Ask children what they are doing to get sparkly energy. 

 

PURPLE GROUP will learn how to use the Segway. actor 3 will come to help here at the end. All children should get ample time to try it out. 

 

Qul Quran + feelings. –actor 4

 

Make a box which we cut out a hole. Children get to put their hand inside and guess what it is. Then discuss the feeling. Rough, smooth, soft, prickly, cold, hard, wet, etc

 

Then children get to feel a hot water bottle. Talk about heat in what they are feeling. 

 

When Allah made us, He made us with this sense of touch and feeling. 

 

It is a beautiful beautiful blessing. When we feel heat, we know to draw our hand away. 

Our feelings are a protection as well as a pleasure. 

 

Which things to children enjoy touching from the ones on the table and why?

 

When we are not well, our parents feel for a temperature. That’s a big blessing. 

 

Allah is constantly showering us with blessings. 

Fabi ayyi ala irabikuma thukaziban

 

Khalaqal insan. 

 

The task is to use warm water or salt on the ice cubes and build the ayat. Each ice cube has a lego piece with the letters of the words khalqal insan written on with permanent pen. 

Khalaqal Insan. He created man

Talk about the feeling- cold ice. 

Can we not feel cold or hot? It’s a law that Allah has made. We cant choose. 

Can we choose to be cool/ chilled in our mood?

Can we choose not to get angry and hot headed?

Yes, that’s a choice we make. The Quran teaches us to Wa kulu linasi husna And speak to the people good. 

2:83

Good speech!!!! GREAT! The blessing of speech and using it the right way.

Children can share ways speech is good.

 

Hand Hand Hand Work – ART – Nabeeha

 

Make one ready

Children get to look at photos of a hand in different positions and the hand is doing different things. Children have to guess what the hand is doing. 

Observe the hand and the way it twists and turns, adjusts to do the variety of things. What part of the hand is engaged. 

Admire the amazing design of Allah.

Khalaqal insan. He created man.

Purple group, Red and possibly blue group get to do an art work of a hand in 3D. Green and yellow need simpler activity. 

Possibly puzzles. 

All the while talking about the hand and the different movements we can do with our hand. 

Hand is a very important part of our lives. We reach out to do things with our hands in so many ways everyday. The hand obeys Allah’s energy laws. 

A hand that is attached to a golden heart that obeys the sparkly energy laws is a hand that does wonders in the world. 

Discuss.
