In order (Children)

You will require 

  • A set of 8 In Order cards and somewhere to lay them out (see templates) 

This resource is called In Order. Each child / group has 7 cards plus one with a question mark on it which can be used to add a topic or theme of their own choice. They can work individually or in groups. It is really important to stress that there are no right or wrong answers in this activity only choices. 

Invite the children to look at all of the cards and then place them in order of what they think is the most important to the least important. When each child / group has done this, invite them to share their order and explain it. This could form part of a wider discussion about which things are most or least important to them at church. 

During this activity ask a leader to record the order of each set of cards by noting them down or by taking a picture of them. It will identify any common threads. 

These can then be fed back to the PCC and other stakeholders
