Encourage Kids to Celebrate the Beginning of the Easter Triduum with the 6 Words to Describe Holy Thursday Worksheet.
Use the 6 Words to Describe Holy Thursday Worksheet to help some learners think about Christ's last meal with His disciples. Other students may want to focus on the institution of the sacraments of the Holy Eucharist and Holy Orders. This worksheet features a thematic graphic as the main emphasis (noun) in the square. Learners need only to think of six different words or phrases to describe some facet of Holy Thursday. Some examples could include the Last Supper, Holy Eucharist, first Mass, Holy orders, priesthood, Holy Week, Lent, or starts the Easter Triduum. The words or phrases should fit the student age group. Because this activity is flexible, some students may enjoy drawing pictures instead of writing.
The 6 Words to Describe Holy Thursday Worksheet can be used as an ice breaker for a Religious Education class or the first day of school meeting. It is also appropriate to use during Holy Week or to celebrate the start of the Easter Triduum.
This file includes two versions of the 6 Words to Describe Holy Thursday Worksheet. There is one in grayscale and another in color.
Some may want to use this worksheet in conjunction with our Holy Thursday Learning Card or Holy Thursday - Jesus Washes the Feet of the Apostles Learning Card. These reference learning cards have matching graphics and information that some students may find useful.
