Teach Children That God Wants Us to Be Prudent and Make Good Choices.

Use this 30-page unit study to help children understand that God is ready to help us based on Mark 1:40-45. Just about everything you need to deliver a CCD or Religious Ed lesson on the weekly Gospel is included in this packet. (A few additional materials of scissors and glue are required for a few of the activities.)

This lesson could also be used for formal CCD or Religious Education classes, home catechesis, or a Sunday school class as well.

Lesson Materials

Weekly Liturgical Lesson Student Sheets

There are two thematic lesson sheets that focus directly on God's Word in Mark 1:40. Additional printables are included for lesson reinforcement and fact recall; they include a Fill-in-the-Faces worksheet, a worksheet that focuses on the meaning of the term "prudence," and a lesson based cloze activity that reiterates the main paragraph from the student lesson sheet.

Weekly Liturgical Lesson Teacher Guide

The teacher guide includes a full lesson plan, which you may alter to meet the specific needs of your program or learners. The plan includes a Gospel focus sheet with the week's Gospel reading, vocabulary focus, lesson highlights, and catechetical references. It also includes a layout that will take you from gathering, through the lesson to closing. As well, the guide contains a copy of all student content and matching answer sheets.

*NOTE: We design our lessons to span a full class period. However, you can pick and choose to use only the materials that you need for your time limitations. We believe that teachers should be equipped with more materials than they need rather than run out of things for students to do in a classroom.

Lesson Extensions

This liturgy lesson contains fun activities or extensions, which are found immediately following the lesson plan pages. Activities are based on creativity and game play.

The Play to Learn Lesson Extensions in this lesson include: Make Good Choices Learning Cube Game, plus thematic crossword and word search puzzles.

The Create to Learn Lesson Extensions in this lesson include: Make Good Choices, door hanger activity, the unprompted mini-book God's Message on the 5th Sunday in Ordinary Time, and coloring page featuring a short prayer for prudence. Children are also encouraged to decorate their lesson cover page creatively, which is explained in the lesson plan.

Take Home Materials

Although children may take home all of their lesson sheets and creations, they should also have a tangible reminder of God's Word. This liturgy lesson includes a Get the Gospel! printable scripture trading card featuring how to be prudent (make good choices).
