Religion: Reconciliation Is the sacrament we receive and celebrate God's Forgiveness. Object Lessons on God’s Love and Forgiveness

God’s love can soften the hardest heart

Perhaps you think you’ve sinned too much, and God could never forgive you. Maybe you have a friend to whom you’ve spoken about Jesus, but her heart is as hard as stone and she doesn’t want to ask Him for forgiveness and trust Him for salvation. Luckily for us, God’s love is so powerful, it can turn “hearts of stone” into “hearts of flesh”. Before you perform this experiment, share this verse with your students:

“I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.” (Ezekiel 36:26)

Perhaps it’s hard for your students to imagine how God could change a person’s heart. No worries– here’s a way to show them! Here’s what you’ll need:

1. 2 eggs

2. vinegar

3. a glass

Directions:

A day or two before you are going to teach your Sunday School lesson, you’ll need to place one of the eggs into the glass, and fill it with vinegar. Let the egg sit in the vinegar. After 24 hours, it should be soft and yellowish. Rinse it off and bring it to class with the other egg. Show the students the hard egg and let them touch it. (You can boil it to avoid it breaking and making a mess in your class.) Ask them if there is any way to make this hard egg shell soft. Then, rinse off the softened egg and let the kids touch it and even bounce it on the table. Explain that this egg spent 24 hours in vinegar, which “magically” made it soft! When God’s love surrounds us, like the vinegar covered the egg, we can’t help but come out completely changed. His love softens even the hardest of hearts!

Science: Attachment from Mrs. Young will be forwarded with daily email.

Science: weather journal in blue folder: daily pictures by observing (about 10 minutes; same as past 2 days) Experiement at home: (optional)

. Reflect a rainbow.

What you need: Glass of water, sheet of white paper, sunlight.

What to do: Fill the glass all the way to the top with water. Put the glass of water on a table so that it is half on the table and half off the table (make sure that the glass doesn’t fall!) Then, make sure that the sun can shine through the glass of water. Next, place the white sheet of paper on the floor. Adjust the piece of paper and the glass of water until a rainbow forms on the paper.

How does this happen? Explain to students that light is made up of many colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. When light passes through the water, it is broken up into all of the colors seen in a rainbow.

If you would like: Record and share!

Religion: Talk with your children about how Jesus and his teachings are the way of the world. All week have your child look through any old magazines and make a collage of ways people are spreading the light of Christ. (Help students reflect on ways they have followed or not followed Jesus...Help students to focus on how the holy spirit guides us to learn to) After discussion have students fold paper into fourths and illustrate 2 ways they followed Jesus, 2 ways they did not (sentence on how they can do what is right and clean up mistakes)-helping them understand that God is always willing to forgive and seeking forgiveness is what helps us grow.

Good Discussion Starter for Students: For Lent, it is good to CLEAR OUT the things in our lives that we don’t really need—things that get in the way of following Jesus. For example, maybe you watch TV or play video games a lot. Why not put them away for a while and use that extra time to pray.

For Lent, it is good to ask ourselves, “Have I made any mistakes or messes that I need to clean up? Do I need to apologize to someone for something I said or did? Do I need to ask God to forgive me?

Students would normally have Guidance, Library, and Spanish! (Mrs. Lutter posted her work on her virtual page...Senora Dee put a Spanish packet in student's folder)

Science: weather journal in blue folder: daily pictures by observing (about 10 minutes) Example below

St. Patrick was a missionary to Ireland in the 5th century. There are many legends and tales about how he brought Christianity to the island including how he used the shamrock to explain the Christian trinity. It is believed he died on March 17, 461.

Hundreds of years later, around the 9th century, people in Ireland began celebrating the Feast of St. Patrick on March 17th each year. This holiday continued as a serious religious holiday in Ireland for hundreds of years.

In the 1700s the holiday began to become popular with Irish-Americans wanting to celebrate their heritage. The first St. Patrick's Day parade was held on March 17, 1762 in New York City.

Fun Facts About Saint Patrick's Day

• It was named the "Friendliest Day of the Year" by the Guinness Book of World Records.

• Legend has it that St. Patrick stood on a hill in Ireland and banished all the snakes from the island.

• The fountain in front of the White House is sometimes dyed green in honor of the day.

• Other names for the holiday include the Feast of St. Patrick, St. Paddy's Day, and St. Patty's Day.

• In 1991 March was proclaimed Irish-American Heritage Month in the United States.

• Around 150,000 people participate in the New York City parade.

• The streets of downtown Rolla, Missouri are painted green for the day.

• According to the 2003 census, there are 34 million Irish-Americans. Nineteen presidents of the United States claim to have some Irish heritage.

HW: at least 2 workbook pages; I do not have a teacher handbook for this, so just have students practice 2 pages per day. (10 -15 minutes focus on students starting at top and forming letters correctly)
