3.1 Christian Resources: The Cry of the Martyrs: The Threat to Religious Liberty Around the World Video

In time for last year’s International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church, this presentation is one hour long beginning with a short video of interest to a broad audience. The video recounts the experience of a man imprisoned for his faith. It is not too graphic, but parents will wish to screen it first to determine its suitability for their children. The webcast was co-sponsored by the Family Research Council and Voice of the Martyrs and discussed the ongoing, and growing, assaults on religious liberty throughout the world.

3.3 Preschool and Kindergarten: 10 Mazes for Preschoolers

Among the ideas is making mazes with chalk (on the driveway or chalkboard), with blocks, or with masking tape. Enhance the maze with letters or numbers to follow. The author suggests that mazes are not just mere recreation, but are “about problem solving and figuring how to get to that end goal.”
