Need: Several common small objects
Directions: Place several small objects on a tray or table in front of the students where they all can see (number of objects that are age appropriate). Have the students name each object as you point to them. Students hide their eyes while the teacher removes one object. Then the students look and guess which object is missing. Who ever guesses right gets to remove an object and have everyone guess "What's Missing".
Thief!: Players are given situations and they must identify whether or not they are breaking the 7th Commandment (Catholic). They also must state what they are obliged to do for their sin.
Introduction: Stealing is taking something that does not belong to you without asking. It is not borrowing, or finding something, or owning something, or having something with permission. It is taking something from someone else. Besides stealing, the 7th commandment forbids cheating, keeping things that are not ours, and accepting bribes by public officials.
We are commanded by the 7th commandment to respect what belongs to others, to live up to our business agreements, to pay our just debts and to not charge an exorbitant rate of interest when lending to another. We must also use the things we have wisely and treat our things with respect. In addition, this commandment includes that we do not keep others from having what they deserve or borrow things and not returning them.
Introduce snack: This basic recipe is in honor of the cowboy who labeled beans “deceitful”—‘cause they talk behind your back.”
2 (28 oz.) can of Bush’s Baked Beans with onions 8 pieces of bacon 1 box of dark brown or light brown sugar
Cut up 8 pieces of bacon in 2 inch strips and fry until crispy. Remove bacon and drain on paper towels. In a pot, combine beans, bacon, and the whole box (yes, the whole box) of brown sugar. Bring to a boil. Turn to low and simmer until beans are really thick. Stir occasionally. I judge it to be done if my wooden spoon can almost stand up in it.
*Add cut up cooked hot dogs to make Beanie Weenies
