Two really fun options for your students to create a Back To School Backpack Option #1 - Use all of the templates provided and students will craft their own backpacks. Option #2 - Begin with a paper bag and use the templates provided to create a paper bag backpack. Both great options ... you decide what is best for your students. There are many options for writing activities included: - on the straps - on the front cover - a secret pocket which students complete inserts and drop into the pocket - 4 interactive templates created so you can have students tell you more about themselves, what makes them happy, what they are good at, a little about their family, a goal for the year, etc. - have used graphics for boys and for girls What you need: Paper (light cardstock would be extra special), coloring pencils, glue, paper bags (if that is the option you choose) I have included step by step directions and visuals to assist you in assembling these backpacks. Also, view the YouTube video on how to assemble these backpacks at: https://youtu.be/wRzF5eGyFME Look at the video and decide which backpack is better suited for your students - the paper bag backpack for the little ones, the regular backpack for students in the older grades.

Religion: Unit Plan for a 9 Theology Inquiry Based Learning unit on the importance of lay people

A unit designed in an Australian Catholic school which could be easily modified for other contexts. The unit entitled 'Walking in Christ's Footsteps' poses two big questions to students - Do people in my community walk in Christ’s footsteps? Why should I walk in Jesus Christ’s footsteps? It then outlines the learning activities which will occur. The unit has been designed to follow the TELSTAR method of inquiry and has drawn on a range of recommended Inquiry Based Learning pedagogy. It has been designed to be as interactive as possible. Within the unit students will explores how Jesus lived on Earth and the examples he left for us. They will learn how lay people from various Christian churches within their local community walk in Christ’s footsteps (aka live their Christian vocation. They will discover why we have the sacraments of initiation (baptism, confirmation and the eucharist.) They will see how Christians serve Christ through worship and prayer but also through charity (living his mission by serving other people and speaking out against social injustices.) Their final assessment is to interview lay people from a range of churches in their local area and write a report to demonstrate their findings.
