Lesson 3 : Justice
Happy Children’s Day everyone! Even though summer seems to have disappeared over night, we still hope everyone had a happy national children’s day celebration. We made some ‘Bobbly Wobblies’ to start out with some fun … 🙂
Filling balloons with flour (which was a bit tricky, and needed quite a bit of prodding with a pencil!) and then decorating them into faces, woolly hair, googly eyes and all. They make great little squishy friends!
Our class after was all about ‘Justice’. Starting with a story about ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, hiring a carriage, while He was in Egypt, so He could offer a ride to an important Governor. The carriage driver was trying to charge him a lot more money than the trip was worth, and ‘Abdu’l-Bahá didn’t pay him more than was his due. And telling the driver, that he would have received a generous tip, if he would have been honest. (see the book ‘Daily Reflections and Stories for Children‘)
For the whole of today’s lesson on Justice – as usual, check out the lessons page. 🙂
We then practiced our quote for today by drawing lots of footprints (one for each word) to remember the words by “Tread ye the path of justice, for this, verily, is the straight path.”
To finish our lesson for today, we completed a ‘justice’ word find – which you can download here. There are two versions for different levels of reading/writing. Enjoy 😉
