Learning about the verse is great, teaching about each of the individual fruits is amazing, but having them apply it, practice it, and have hands on experience in their learning is PRICELESS. In my classroom I let them earn "bucks" for our store or candy or other rewards. We had an AMAZING turn out! Even better if you have them record and share what they did to earn each area of their tree!

Each student cuts out fruit and pastes it on as they earn and apply it to their lives!)
