I always start my year in religion with an overview of the Sacraments. Our 5th grade curriculum focuses on all seven of them as a gift to the Church from Christ. We will get into the nitty-gritty of each throughout the year, but I like to begin with a big picture. Because we have been talking quite a bit about symbolism within literature in our St. Maximilian Kolbe unit (more on that soon!), I thought we could make some connections with symbols that we use to represent the Sacraments. Here is how our graphic organizer turned out:
We also now have a matching anchor chart on the wall to use as reference throughout the year.
