This is an activity I do during Catholic Schools' Week with my students. It's fun to do and makes a really great point. With Jesus as our rock, our Catholic Schools are strong! The activity will have the students exploring the concept of Jesus as our rock.
This is a 15 page packet! Included in the packet you'll receive-
-Prayer Rock Poem (your students will make prayer rocks; you'll send this printable home with them)
-Jesus Is The Rock of My Salvation worksheet (introduces concept)
--A Tale of Two Builders-- Reader's Theater
-Catholic Schools- Jesus Is Our Rock (Final copy paper for students to write on this theme)
-Brainstorming Overhead Transparency (With Jesus As Our Rock, Catholic Schools are Strong...Why?)
-Teacher Notes Page
You can also have your students make prayer rocks to put in your school's newly formed rock garden. How powerful would it be to have the whole school do this?? You can have a prayer service blessing the rocks! It fits in with what we celebrate as Catholic Schools. Jesus really is our rock---our foundation for all we do!
