Students write Advent plays and take them on the road
Middle school students in Annette Schaefer’s class St. Margaret Mary School in Milwaukee, WI, become playwrights during Advent. They write scripts together, take turns learning lines, and dress up as characters in their plays. Then they visit classrooms of younger children, who enjoy learning the Gospel by having it acted out for them. Read more in the

Create a classroom game with this Christmas season quiz
What is the liturgical color for Advent? Is the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary celebrated during Advent? These are just two of the 20 questions in the current “What’s Your Catholic IQ?” – a regular feature of
Catechist magazine. Although the monthly quiz is intended as a self-assessment for the fun and enlightenment of the magazine’s readers, you can turn the questions into a classroom game and learning experience for older children. Just
click here. Answers are included, of course.
