This is a 32 page packet. If you are like me and teach multiple grade levels, I have given you a total of 4 projects….one for each class you teach. If you do not teach multiple grade levels, you'll have 4 projects that are Bible-based to do with your students throughout the year. The projects will have your students using the Bible to focus on topics relevant to them and society today: (frustration, cooperation, anger, stress, gossip, greed etc.) To help, I have given you printables with all the issues and the places the students will turn to in the Bible to get more information about the resources. The projects include:
-MESSAGES WORTH TEXTING activity
-FOLLOW IN THE RIGHT FOOTSTEPS (sneaker activity)
-BIBLICAL POSTER activity
-I MUSTACHE YOU WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS ABOUT…activity
You will get everything you need to complete the assignments, all patterns, directions, student printables. In addition, I have included a rubric for each project, should you choose to grade it. This can be done at any time of the year and is truly worthwhile. I believe that the overall message is that it teaches our students that we can turn to the Bible to learn about issues that personally affect us. Most of our students don't realize the relevance of the Bible in their own lives today. We need to change that. Activities such as these do that! What I do in my classroom, is that I keep the scripture reference sheets handy. Whenever an issue arises, I say…"Looks like we're having a problem with cooperation. Let's see what the Bible says about that." My students are used to this now. I even have the reference sheets in the hallway, so that if I have to take a student into the hallway, I bring my Bible and use it when speaking with him/her. I believe I'm sending them a powerful message doing this, and it's worked wonders in my room.
God Bless You and your students!
