Main Idea
Using symbols can help double children's learning potential as they engage different areas of the brain by both seing and hearing Bible stories.  The symbols used to tell the story of Holy Week will help children comprehend and tell others the story of the last days of Jesus' life.

Unit Description
Father forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing.

Luke 23:34a

Children will use the symbols of Holy Week to:

  • Learn the events of Holy Week;
  • Recognize the stories related to the events of Holy Week;
  • Create a way to share the story of Holy Week with others through symbols;
  • Review the four Gospel accounts of Holy Week and compare the symbols used.
