Let's Focus on the Pope, the Vicar in Rome
Invite children to think about the Pope and the qualities it takes to shepherd over one billion Catholics worldwide.
To complete this activity have learners write the name of a Pope or words to describe his holiness on each of the alphabetized lines provided on the worksheet.
Children can work alone or in teams, and can track who gives the most examples or play for points using the point gauge below. You can score sheets for fun or learner challenges based on how many words are found. Just follow this simple point scale based on words beginning with the following letters:
A-Z Sheets Point Scale
