TOB Grade 5
Literature-based materials to bring Theology of the Body to life for fifth graders. Set includes 4 items: D’Aulaires’ Book of Greek Myths and companion Teacher’s Guide. Plus an Original Nakedness Teacher’s Guide (and materials) for exploring readings from your classroom or family Bible. Part of the ROOTED: Theology of the Body K-12 Curriculum.
The elementary school material is literature-based, using richly illustrated stories to delve deeper into the foundational concepts of Theology of the Body – what it means to be human, how to live as a gift to others, what it means to have heaven as our ultimate destiny. We offer Teacher’s Guides to introduce many hands on activities to embody this discovery for young learners. As part of the Grade 3-5 experience, we enable students a view into the Bible you use and cherish, to establish the tradition of learning personal inspiration from the Word of God.
The two units included in this Grade 5 package includes D’Aulaires’ Book of Greek Myths and companion Teacher’s Guide, as well as an Original Nakedness (innocence) Teacher’s Guide and Timeline/Extra Materials Packet to explore God’s word in the Bible that you already have in your classroom. It represents two to four weeks of teaching per unit – in many cases even more. Generous Lesson Extensions offer the enterprising teacher returns to these themes throughout the year. Several themes expand on the Theology of the Body principals that have been introduced to the student inviting them to own more deeply this learning with joy in their heart. Grades 3 through 5 together offer an introduction to the three “original experiences” (Original Solitude, Original Unity, Original Nakedness) that Adam and Eve and all of us encounter as human persons. Of course, the journey through the Bible grows richer as you explore with the child the truths that unite the whole human family. (Upon order, the scripture unit ships immediately, the Greek Myths unit will ship in December 2018 for teaching this spring.)
