This unit helps children experience the Christmas story from the shepherds' unique point of view exploring questions like: What do Shepherds watch for? What do we watch for in Advent? What are a shepherd's responsibilities? What tools does a shepherd use? How can we apply this to our Advent waiting? Using seven different lesson plans and learning styles, we explore the meaning of Advent and how we prepare for Christmas. Beyond learning about Bible-time shepherds, children also explore a story offering one interpretation of the Legend of the Candy Cane and it's connection to shepherds - and to Jesus! Appropriate for K-5th Grade.
Each WorkshopCycle unit includes seven workshops:
- Story & Games
- Drama & Activity
- Kitchen (food-related, but doesn't always need an actual kitchen)
- Publishing (Computer & non-Computer options)
pay one low annual fee to access to ALL units.
Use for Sunday School, VBS or special events --- a great way to stretch your budget!!
You can purchase cycles individually or purchase an annual congregational membership. Congregational members get access to all cycles and can download as many as are needed in a given year. You can download a cycle and if it turns out that you don't want to use that one, just download a different cycle without wasting the cost of a cycle you don't use. Plus, you can use cycles for special occasions (Christmas, Lent, etc.) and they are great for a VBS or Summer Camp program as well as Winter Camp, which is a growing trend in churches today -- the week after Christmas when parents need child care and children are eager have fun and learn.
Annual Memberships are VERY affordable!
