The following is from the OCA Website:
The Orthodox Church in America’s Department of Christian Education [of which our Matushka Christine is co-chair] recently released its newest on-line resource, the “Saints of North America Activity Book.”
Available free of charge in downloadable PDF format at http://dce.oca.org/Sections/ Resources/american-saints.asp, the 74-page book offers biographical information about 12 saints whose lives and witness built up the Church in America. In addition, it includes striking black and white drawings of each saint, based on their icons, and an array of puzzle activities that will offer students a challenging and enjoyable way to learn more about each saint.
A special feature of the book is a series of maps tracing the path of each saint’s travels and witness.
“Teachers and educators are seeking materials that address multiple intelligences and learning styles,” said Mrs. Alexander Safchuk, department co-chair. “The activity book, with its variety of resources, answers that need.”
The book also offers many ways for teachers to help students develop further study.
“For example, students might create puzzles based on those in the book, map the travels of other saints, or chart the climates and topography of areas of the world in which Orthodox saints have witnessed, to discover how they adapted to those varied conditions,” added Mrs. Safchuk.
The activity book is a result of the creative cooperation of Christine Zebrun, Maria Proch, Kathryn Kessler, and other department members.
