This is EVERYTHING you need to teach about Lent and Holy Week!
This all inclusive unit contains everything you will need to teach the basics about Lent and Holy Week. It includes the Catholic guidelines for fasting and abstinence as well as in formation on the traditional services for Ash Wednesday, Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday, and Easter Sunday. The students will read their way through the scriptures and summarize each portion of the Passion and Resurrection of Christ.
This download includes a PowerPoint presentations that contains all the words you will need to lead the students through the guided notes. It's a compulsive 85 pages of information!
There are two PowerPoint versions...one with images and one without. You can either the open the version with images and you're ready to present. Or, you can take some time to add your own pictures, so you can choose serious or silly to engage your class in the lesson. The slides are ready for pictures, and adding that should take about 20-30 minutes, then you're ready to present.
The guided notes are easy for any level of student to complete as you work through the PowerPoint. It's simple enough that the basic students can complete the notes. There are also numerous open ended questions to challenge the more advanced students.
The test includes multiple choice, matching, and short answer questions. The questions are pretaught in the packet with a review guide so the students can be completely prepared for the exam. An answer key is included.
If you want to add a quick read-aloud to the lesson, The Tale of Three Trees: A Traditional Folktale
is my favorite!
