This topic is collecting suggestions and resources for teaching the story of the Cross to children using a "stations of the cross" approach.
"Stations" are a way of walking through scenes, episodes, or subjects. They help teach the sequence of the story and can walk students from informational to transformational content.
Each station should include an activity. Stations for or children are usually staffed by a volunteer.
"Stations" can mean:
- a variety of tables in the classroom where different activities are moved through in sequence (computer, video, craft, memory game)
- different rooms or places in your church
- Prayer Labyrinths are a form of "stations"
The Rotation.org Writing Team has a "Stations of the Cross" Workshop lesson. Supporting Membership required to access.
