Great Ideas: The Infancy Narratives

A set of activities that prepare students to study the infancy narratives of Jesus

From the TCT archives: an Advent activity for your students.

In preparation for studying the infancy narratives of Jesus, students research and write their own infancy narratives. Next they complete an anticipation guide with questions about the birth of Jesus. After reading the scriptural account, they each complete a Venn diagram. They then create Christmas cards each depicting a scene from the Gospel account along with a relevant scriptural quote. The cards are sent to soldiers, nursing homes, and shelters.
