Pro-Life Prints: Lesson 1: Preborn Babies

This post contains affiliate links.

Today my two youngest daughters (ages 9 and 3) began another Culture of Life Studies Program called Pro-Life Prints. If you aren't familiar with Culture of Life Studies Program it's a fabulous, life-affirming resource that "strives to build a culture of life by helping students to understand the value of every human being and by inspiring a new generation of young people who will defend preborn children, respect all human beings from creation to death, and speak the truth with confidence in defense of the innocent."  Be sure to read more about the program, their reviews and program's components.

Pro-Life Prints comes as a digital download and includes everything you need (excluding art supplies) to make a beautiful and creative 12-page printable activity booklet.

Contents include:
  • 4 lessons on the dignity of every person
  • Instructor guide
  • Discussion questions
  • Complete handprint instructions
  • Printable 13-page student book
Recommended for students in kindergarten through 2nd grade.

It was a beautiful day outside, in the mid 60s, so we had some fun painting in our booklet on our back porch enjoying the sunshine.

Lesson 1: Preborn Babies: "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I dedicated you, a prophet to the nations I appointed you." -Jeremiah 1:5

My daughters used Dot Paint Markers to decorate the cover and Crayola Washable Kids' Paint for the inside pages.  The first page in the lesson plan discusses how each baby starts as small as a poppy seed so I placed a seed in each of my girls' hands so they can see how very tiny they began their life inside my womb.  The first page they painted preborn baby's feet and the page showed in the upper right corner the tiny size of a 12 week old baby in the womb.

Then preborn babies grow as big as a strawberry when babies can smile, frown and suck their thumb.  They have fingernails and can scratch their nose! 

Then it takes babies 8 long months to grow as big as a pineapple.

When the pages were done and dried for Lesson 1, I laminated them with my favorite laminator and when the booklet is complete I'll bind the laminated pages.

Here are my daughters' completed pages for Lesson 1...

It was a fun lesson and we look forward to doing Lesson 2!

Your amaz affil search box isn't working for me (maybe it's just me? I hope)
So I went to another post with an amaz link and clicked through there.
