Help Children Discover Jesus Christ by Studying the Events of His Life

Help children get to know Jesus by studying the events of His life. Using one of our timeline activities below, you can create a wonderful addition to your religious studies program in the classroom or at home. As each event is highlighted, discussed, and added to the timeline, children become more familiar with the beauty and characteristics of our Lord. This activity can be the perfect companion to the Liturgical Year. Plus each event featured in our Little Timeline of the Life of Christ or the Life of Christ Timeline for Children comes with an accompanying worksheet or full notebooking set that exactly matches the images in the timeline.
