Prepare to Receive Our Lord in Holy Communion with our F3 Lesson on the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist.
Help children learn about and prepare to receive the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist. This F3 - Flip, Flap, Fold lesson is a fun way to reinforce or introduce information that is sure to be reviewed over and over again. Although this lesson is designed to be used with a prepared Single F3 folder, its wide margins and layout make it perfect to be stapled as a packet or put directly into a three-ring binder as well.
- What is a sacrifice?
- How is the Last Supper connected to the Holy Eucharist?
- How do we prepare for and receive Jesus in the Holy Eucharist?
The Holy Eucharist is the summit and source of the Catholic faith. All other sacraments lead to it. This resource may be used to enhance or supplement your lessons on the Holy Eucharist, including Jesus as a sacrifice for our sins, the Last Supper, and preparing and receiving Jesus in Holy Communion.
This resource is perfect for use in your homeschool, CCD or Religious Education classes. There are five F3 piece activities that can help you teach or reinforce your lessons on the Holy Eucharist, whether you use a formal curriculum or one that you have put together yourself.
It is expected that this lesson can be completed in one or two thirty-minute class sessions. Older learners may require less time to complete the full folder.
