This is a 19-page packet that includes an art and writing assignment based upon the premise that we are called to be kingdom builders here on earth. The students will write how to do this. I included writing activities that are appropriate for the younger grades and the upper grades, this way you can share them with your colleagues…or you can choose to use it, if you choose multiple classes, for the various classes you teach. One year, my school's theme (we always begin with a theme each September) was KINGDOM BUILDERS. If you decide to go with a theme like this, the packet will be most helpful.
I love the art project that goes with this! I gave a few options for crafts…simple ones that can be done with basic materials. My favorite one involves the paint chip samples you can get at hardware stores. The bulletin board came out great!
For the upper grades, I included a Bible Reference sheet…for them to use when doing their writing assignment. It includes topics that are pertinent to today and where you can find them in the Bible. For example, if a student is writing an essay based upon less arguing, fighting amongst each other, he will know exactly where to go in the Bible to find scripture to support this. I think this packet is worth it for this resource alone! I can't tell you how many times I use this in my classroom!!!
I hope you enjoy this as much as my kids did!
