Help Kids Learn About Having the Right Attitude in Prayer with the Parable of the Pharisee and the Publican Picture Puzzle!

How to Use the Parable of the Pharisee and the Publican Picture Puzzle
This Montessori style game is simple to use. First, cut the playing pieces out on the lines provided. Next, mix the parts up. Then have players match the pieces to recreate the image and encourage quote knowledge and mastery. The puzzle also includes a control card and a quote card. Older learners can use this game to commit the provided quote to memory. The Bible passage comes from the Douay-Rheims Translation of the Holy Bible.
The game is quite versatile as it has four different levels of play - 4, 9, 12, and 20 pieces. Upon completion of play, store all the parts in a small stationery envelope. Repeat play for review as necessary.
It is especially appropriate to use the game in conjunction with lessons about prayer, humility, not comparing ourselves to others, or the Parable of the Pharisee and the Publican.
