31 Days: Compassion

I love these lesson plans I recently came across. I wish there were more of them. So well written... such a wide range of topics and activities.

What lesson plans am I talking about?

These on Exploring God's Global Family at Compassion.

They have five 2-part lessons in pdf files, ready to be printed. They're easy to follow - perfect for homeschoolers and classroom teachers alike.

Lessons topics:
  • Evangelism
  • Being Stewards of God's Earth
  • Giving/Tithing
  • Prayer
  • Helping Others in Need
The lessons touch on subject-matter in each of the following areas:
  • Geography
  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Culture
  • Prayer
  • Tithing
  • Evangelism
  • Gratefulness
  • Helping Others in Need
  • Honoring God
Make a soccer ball like the kids in Burkina Faso. Create a "Brazilian" rainforest in a bottle. Recycle containers to make Peruvian maracas. Punch your way to some Mexican tin art. And enjoy an Indian-style Lassi.

All this and more is included in these wonderful lessons that can help teach your students to be more compassionate caretakers in this world.

They even have an online game for kids called Quest for Compassion. Might be kind of fun for your kids, and definitely a good learning experience.
