The class brought in objects that were special to them. Some were linked to their religions and other objects held special memories.
The children spoke about their objects and the class had the chance to ask thoughtful questions about them. It was a fantastic way to learn about how some objects are used in prayer; how gifts from significant people hold extra meaning and about objects linked to a key point in a person’s life. The objects were very varied and this made it all the more interesting. We concluded that object with financial value are often very different from those with spiritual or emotional value.
