This is an Advent activity for grades 1-4. As you begin each week of Advent, read a passage that helps students relate to the theme for that week. You can preview the "HOPE" passage here knowing the complete project contains Faith, Joy, and Peace as well. There are suggested readings and prayers, whole group suggestions, written activities, and visual incentives. This activity will bring a clearer understanding to students of how they can learn to wait well for the birth of Jesus.
