Our lower Elementary classes created their own illustrations to the story of Joshua and the battle of Jericho making up their own class story book. The Enduring Understanding throughout this unit of study was “God is with us wherever we go, whatever we face and no matter how big the battle, ready to give victory”.
All the students worked in groups to decide what prayers they would write and then compile as a class in preparation for the Elementary School Prayer Assembly at the beginning of the year. They then recorded their class prayers in their Religious Studies Books along with any pictures they wished to include. As part of the assembly these prayers were displayed on the big screen and representatives from each class prayed their prayers.
