I’m pretty excited about this one!
I want to do something to reinforce the Ten Commandments as we move in to this last unit on Morality. I also want to place more responsibility on the kids now that they are confirmed, so that they sense a difference between how I taught them before Confirmation and how they are learning now.
As a result, I’ve come up with something I call The Ten Commandments Two-Minute Drills! I’ve devised a short (2-3 minute) mini-session for each of the Ten Commandments that is comprised of an easy game or demonstration to illustrate the main point of that Commandment. Each Two-Minute Drill has a one-page script that I will assign to students (I have ten students, so if they all show, it should work out nicely). I’ll give them a few minutes to look over their script and I’ll go around to help them and to explain what they will be doing. I will be providing the materials that are mentioned in each script (I kept it to a minimum so that it’s not a burden on the catechist). Finally, I’ll have each student take their turn, teaching their little Two-Minute Drill on one of the Commandments!
This should be interesting! Of course, I’ll let you know how it goes! Wish me luck!
