This product is a full assignment that can be used for a Religion mark or even as a simple activity in the classroom. It contains an assignment outline, a list of Catholic Saints (directly from the Grade 3 Growing in Faith, Growing in Christ textbook), two full rubrics for both a Religion AND Language Arts (Writing, Reading, Oral Communication) assessment mark(s), and 3 different sheets for students to organize their work and then present their Saint.
Throughout this assignment students have the opportunity to learn, read and discuss many stories about various Saints that strengthen the Catholic faith community. As even more fun, after students research and complete an activity and answer questions about their chosen Saint, they get the opportunity to present their Saint in the First Person through a mini speech they get to create.
I have personally created and facilitated this assignment many times as students had so much fun researching, exploring and dressing up just like their Saint to add even more enjoyment to their work!
