Create a Bulletin Board Lesson Using the We Must Pray at All Times Display Activity.
Need a unique lesson to help Catholic kids think about prayer? Try our We Must Pray at All Times 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 encourage children to pray daily by writing a prayer to Christ to share with others. By praying daily, we not only keep the First Commandment but also set ourselves on a path to heaven by loving God.
As part of this activity, learners will write a prayer to Jesus. The inspiration for this lesson is the Gospel of St. Luke 21:25-28, 34-36.
How to Use the We Must Pray at All Times Display Activity
This Religious Education lesson not only teaches kids about praying at all times 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 - a sample layout is shown.
This activity is designed for group use, so it can comfortably accommodate a class of any size. And because just about everything you need is included 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.
