First we watched the departure on EWTN. It was very interesting and the kids asked a ton of questions.
I thought the most fun part of "Pope day" was making this lap book which are full of information. For those of you who aren't home schoolers (even though lap books aren't something 'exclusive' to home schoolers we are the main people who make use of them) here is a great place to read and understand what one is (What is a lapbook?) We just began making this Papal Lap Book today and we'll take several days to talk about the information as we finish assembling them. It's fun to make these especially if you're like me and get the 'craft itch'.
Here are some pictures of the kids making theirs.
