Love Mirror - Lesson Plan

Love Mirror - This is an activity to do with your students on Saint Valentine’s Day. It focuses on love, as is appropriate for that day, drawing the characteristics of love from the beautiful text of Paul in the First Letter to the Corinthians chapter 13:
Love is patient, love is kind. It is not jealous, (love) is not pompous, it is not inflated, it is not rude, it does not seek its own interests, it is not quick-tempered, it does not brood over injury, it does not rejoice over wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails.

I have used this activity with grade 10-12 students and with RCIA members and they have always reacted very well to it.

The lesson plan comes with a worksheet for your students to fill out, a small scripture poster to print out links to other related resources available online.
