About this unit

This early elementary grade unit study will help your children to learn about Advent 1 and why we celebrate it. You and your child(ren) or students will explore the lesson using hands on activities and worksheets.


I have suggested several books for your studies and there are a ton of great resources online as well. Along with the worksheets provided, I've suggested a few projects, such as making an Advent sensory bin, an Advent Wreath craft, some vocabulary words, copy work and a letter L page depending on the needs of your learner.


It will take about a week to complete this unit – but it can easily be condensed down to one day if you want to do everything in one day. You could also use all or part of it for a Children's Chapel or Children's Church or Sunday School
