This is a lesson plan to teach children about Lent and why Christians give something up during Lent. It is suitable for ages 7-11.
The 5 page lesson plan (PDF) includes details of an introductory group discussion, an introduction to an event in Jesus' life, a brainstorming activity, a poem writing task and a final drama activity. The plan includes learning objectives for three levels of abilities and assessment strategies.
There is also a 15 slide animated PowerPoint presentation included, which gives details about Lent and tells the story of an event in Jesus' life linked to Lent. This is not editable. Please click 'Read Only' to open the PowerPoint. Some of the images only appear when the PowerPoint is run as a Slideshow.
The plan also includes differentiated templates in color and black & white for the poem which the children write during the lesson.
No further preparation required.
