Curriculum Connections
●  Sci: Discuss with the children the function of a church. Ask: What do we do there? (Pray, gather, sing, etc.). Ask the children to draw a picture of a church and analyze how the design of the building helps it function. (K-2.ETS1-2)
●  Math: Show the children images of objects found in a church (i.e., stained glass windows, altar, pews, candles, chalice, etc.). Have the children describe these objects using shapes and relative positioning (above, below, beside, etc.). (CCSS.Math. Content.K.G.A.1)
