One of the activities in my 40 Ideas for 40 Days of Lent, 2011, is an exercise on the Seven Last Words of Christ. Since I am once again only going to have about half of my students present this Monday (because of Living Stations rehearsals), I thought it would be nice to have them work on a Lenten activity related to the suffering and death of Jesus that is portrayed in the Living Stations. I realized that it would be easy to formulate this activity into a Blackline Master so that the kids would have the whole thing right in front of them. I’m happy to share these with you:
Knowing that this activity will not take the whole period, I am also prepared to have them exercise those artistic brain cells that I wrote about the other day. I ran off copies of a Blackline Master that invites them to draw and then color scenes from Holy Week. In copying these BLMs, I actually enlarged them to 11 x 17 to give them more creative space.
Have a great weekend!
