The Grade 3-5 curriculum is an invitation to live the truth. Fundamental truths of Theology of the Body are not only expressed in greater detail, but are encouraged to take seed in the heart and begin a life of holiness through action. Drawing from engaging literature to foster discovery, children will deepen their relationship with the living God, to embrace and exercise their unique gift as a child of God and temple of the Holy Spirit. Throughout the materials you’ll explore Theology of the Body themes, such as learning that our worldview will influence the way that we treat others, and that the body reveals that we are made for a relationship with God, the world, and others.

What’s Included

Teacher’s Guide

The spiral-bound Teacher’s Guide includes nine scripted lessons, with class discussions, and hands-on activities. A scripture study invites the students to an understanding of God’s plan and purpose. Students create a salvation history timeline fostering an appreciation of the past, present and future, while discovering their place within history.

Theology of the Body and Family Life themes are age-appropriate for young learners encouraging a beautiful, biblical perspective with which to view themselves, their peers, family, and the world around them.

Introduction to the three “original experiences” 

Grades 3 through 5 together offer an introduction to the three “original experiences” Original Solitude, Original Unity, Original Nakedness (a pure gaze viewing one another in full dignity as body-soul composites) that Adam and Eve and all of us encounter as human persons. Children are encouraged to put these truths into their hearts and begin to grow a life of holiness through action. The children discover their current place in history, the importance of the past, and aim for the future, eternal life in heaven, God intends for each of us.

Guidance in forming children to become who God created them to be  

Most Catholic educators and parents lack clear and simple language they can use to help guide children in their God-given identity. REVEALED aims to provide answers.  In fifth grade, children will further explore our rich heritage of truth and love contained in the Bible, so they may continue their journey of discovery, and build a lifelong dialogue with God.   

  • Easy to use 
  • Requires no prior Theology of the Body experience
  • Offers language kids can understand 
  • Engages minds and hearts through discussion
  • Fosters discovery and creativity

Why is Theology of the Body for Kids based in literature? 

Even as a priest, future Pope St. John Paul II used plays, poetry, art and stories to awaken young people to the wonder of their humanity, the purpose of love, and the beauty of their culture. Borrowing insight from the master, each unit of our curriculum is centered around a work of literature. 

Capture with your students the joy, wonder, peace, and virtue of discovering the gift of life, and authentic identity and dignity of being male or female in God’s image. 

What is Theology of the Body? 

Theology of the Body (or TOB) is the basis of our religion curriculum and coursework. But we know that most Catholics don’t have a firm understanding of Theology of the Body yet. That’s why we want to guide you through it. TOB is St. John Paul II’s powerful glimpse of the human person – expressed in 129 separate audiences – revealing the beauty of God’s design for us.  TOB helps us to understand how we were created, our identity in Christ, and our giftings, so that we may see ourselves and others the way God intended.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

  • Q: Your advice for teachers and staff considering adding in Theology of the Body?
    “Jump in. Don’t wait! You are going to learn, just like the kids are going to learn. It is really possible to just walk in and start [teaching] right away. It’s the missing ingredient to the recipe you’ve been working on [at your school].”

    Tim Reilly
    Former Principal for 22 years of Ignatius of Loyola School currently President of St Xavier High School
  • “This [TOB] tells you not just how [to live the Catholic faith], but why. That is exactly what we were missing all along. We have never gotten kids to explore the why part. We knew there was something not complete with us trying to help kids grow in their faith…It [TOB] opens so many other doors too. Kids are more creative. They can concentrate better. They are not worried about all this social stuff as much.”

    Tim Reilly
    Former Principal for 22 years of Ignatius of Loyola School currently President of St Xavier High School
  • “Anyone who’s been a principal for a while eventually starts figuring out why it is that kids make these mistakes that end up being the discipline problems in your office. It is because they don’t know why they were created. When you can help them figure out that they are created for a unique and special purpose and so is everyone else in their classroom — it totally changes how they interact with each other. Your discipline issues will change completely when kids understand who they are and why they are here. That’s why I am such a fan of Theology of the Body and the tools Ruah Woods Press has to offer.” [As principal of St Ignatius of Loyola K-8 School with 1045 students: discipline files were reduced from 2 full file cabinet drawers to a folder just 3-4″ thick, and the seriousness of the offenses were milder, all attributed to integrating TOB in the school curriculum].

  • “With the purchase of the On a Mission to Love [Rosary] books, we have incorporated a school wide praying of the
    rosary each and every Tuesday… We also purchased the Theology of the Body textbooks for our
    religion teachers to use during instruction. Fully integrating the TOB curriculum into our school was a goal
    drafted in our 2016-2021 strategic plan, and we feel we have successfully planted the seed with our
    students that they are in fact unique, created in the image and likeness of God, and for a special purpose.”

  • A new student to the school whispered to her teacher,
    “Thank you for teaching TOB. I have learned to love myself.”

  • “St. Ignatius is nurturing a generation of children who will grow in confidence, knowing their true identity as sons and daughters of God. This is the foundation they need to be able to go forth and set the world on fire, approaching the world’s concerns in a rightly-ordered manner. There is nothing of higher value if they don’t first understand they were created by God to love Him, to be in relationship with him, and to love themselves and others. My daughter’s education is sending her down a path of joy, freedom and love. This is the best gift any parent could desire.”

    Megan Mears
    Parent (& Teacher) at St Ignatius of Loyola
  • “This curriculum is giving them [the students] a view of the big picture that truly is arming them against the culture. They are learning who they are, whose they are, and where they were created to live forever. They are learning to spot the good, the true and the beautiful in the world and to use that as their guide for choosing how to live.”

    Vickie Geckle
    St. Ignatius of Loyola, Grades K-5 TOB Teacher
  • “I think what is so beautiful is that in the younger grades we focus on Genesis and other Scripture. As they get a little older, it moves to connecting scripture to stories. And then by the time they are in the middle school grades, we can see them connecting it all to themselves. ‘My gosh, I am a part of this. I’m part of God’s story!’”

    Vickie Geckle
    St. Ignatius of Loyola, Grades K-5 TOB Teacher
  • “It is well organized and the lay out is easy to follow [and] integrate into instructional framework of our school. The content is to be integrated into the classroom community throughout the day, not as single stand alone lessons… ​I absolutely loved the first section with the chants and songs that reinforce the big ideas of TOB into everyday classroom life. It helps our language reflect our beliefs… It made me wish I could teach kindergarten next year!”

  • “I think you hit the mark… The lessons are spot-on, but also introductory because that is where so many of us (teachers, parents and students) are with regard to digesting and living out these beautiful teachings.”
