This is a great project for Christmas, when talking about the naming of Jesus.
Students use a search engine on a website to look up names for Jesus. Students then choose two of the names and share information in a creative way.
Students choose one more name and write an essay explaining why the author chose to use that name instead of "Jesus."
The suggested website includes versions of the Bible from KJV to the NRSV – Catholic Edition.
Includes a list of 20 names for Jesus, student directions, a list of possible creative projects, and a grading rubric.
