These engaging and creative learning centers help students of all ages celebrate the saints. From Apostle Crowns to Good Deeds Glasses, each hands-on project illustrates a scripture story or Catholic teaching that in turn reflects the life and work of a saint. So, students can create charm bracelets to celebrate the corporal works of mercy as they learn about Marianne Cope. They can make prayer stoles to remember Andre Bessett’s prayer and healing ministry. Or they can build baptismal totem poles to learn about baptism and appreciate the life of Kateri Tekakwitha.Peek Inside! See a sample chapter from this book.
At the heart of each learning center is a story about a saint, told on two levels; for younger (K-2) and older (grades 3-6) students. But that’s only the beginning. Brimming with craft ideas, games, maps, writing projects, and more, each chapter of this indispensable resource makes the saints accessible to everyone, no matter their age or learning style. Easy-to-follow directions and project templates make planning a snap. And because they’re adaptable to any environment or curriculum, these learning centers are perfect for the classroom, or for parish events such as inter-generational gatherings.Sister Catherine Stewart, O.P. is an author and full time professor in the Education Department at Blackburn College in Illinois.
