Teach a Fun Lesson Using the Give and Receive All Gifts with Love Display Activity.
Need a unique lesson to help teach Catholic kids about the Epiphany of the Lord or gift giving? Try our Give and Receive All Gifts with Love Display Activity, which is perfect for a CCD or Religious Education class. Not only does it incorporate group discussion as a teaching tool, but it can accommodate any number of students.
This CCD lesson can help encourage children to learn that gifts are presents of love and that the greatest gift that God gave us was His Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.
As part of this activity, learners will be asked to follow the example of the Wise Men by giving Jesus a present (e.g., doing a good deed, performing charitable work, being kind, or having the right attitude). The inspiration for this lesson is the Gospel of St. Matthew 2:1-12 - the visit from the Magi.
Give and Receive All Gifts with Love Display Activity
This Religious Education lesson not only teaches kids about giving and receiving gifts with the charity but it also creates a unique display. Teachers may use the completed pieces to decorate a classroom, bulletin board, hallway, or learning area.
To use the lesson, first print the materials out to accommodate the number of students. Next, prepare the pieces as suggested in the instructions. Then, hold your class discussion using the lesson sheets for guidance. Finally, create the display as directed in the sample layout shown.
The design of this activity is for group use; it can comfortably accommodate a class of any size. And because the lesson file includes just about everything you need, it is easy to deliver. Teachers must provide art supplies, a Bible, and materials to put up the display. Find Scripture references and CCC notations for those instructors needing a bit of support.
