This year, Follen Church wanted to re-invigorate its programs for older elementary and middle school classes – and hopefully boost participation and attendance. We ordered “Harry and UU” and “D’Oh God!” and were thrilled with the response from our youth: attendance bounced up, creativity soared, and the discussions were deep and values-based. Thank you, Karen Hager, for creating curricula that have made a difference in Follen’s religious education programs!

"I recommend The Fifth Dimension for middle school - watching episodes of The Twilight Zone and discussing . . . We also have programming for preschoolers and elementary and youth spread throughout the week but Fifth Dimension is by far the most popular."
~ Liz Roper, Director of Lifespan Religious Education, Morristown Unitarian Fellowship, Morristown, NJ
"Fifth Dimension is by far the most popular curriculum we use. We offer it every other year for middle school, and the volunteers love it. It's easy to use, engaging, and still relevant after all these years!"
