How to Use the I Am Preparing to Encounter Jesus Display Activity
To use the lesson to create a unique display, 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 - a sample layout is shown. Some teachers may want to use the completed pieces to decorate a classroom, bulletin board, hallway, or learning area.
Because this activity is designed for group use, it can comfortably accommodate a class of any size. And because this lesson includes just about everything you need in the lesson file, it is easy to deliver. Art supplies, a Bible, and materials to affix the display must be supplied separately. For instructors needing a bit of support, Scripture references, and CCC notations are provided.
