6th Grade Religion


Teacher:   Mrs. Catherine Kollars, ckollars@stclarepdx.org

Curriculum:   Old Tetstament; Catholic Social Teaching; Liturgy Planning and Liturgical Year, Family Life; Called to Protect  

Sixth grade religion will focus on an overview of the Old Testament with connections to how it relates to the New Testament. Students will learn about Abraham, Jacob, Moses, King David, the prophets, Ruth and Naomi, and other key Biblical figures. In addition, they will have a special unit based on the Called to Protect protocol. Parents will be notified when this week-long unit begins in the spring. The family life curriculum will also be covered using the Fully Alive program. This will also be in the late spring.

An interesting feature of sixth grade religion is how it will so often connect with sixth grade social studies. We actually will cover a chapter in social studies on the ancient Israelites. In this way both the important stories related to our Catholic faith and the important historic contribution of the Israelites will be emphasized.
