I sponsor a pro-life club at school. It includes boys and girls from 10-13 years old. Here is what we did for our first meeting:
We opened with prayer & snack, then we watched this short video from AFA called “Be a Voice.” It describes what it means to be pro-life in a way that is meaningful and appropriate for all ages. We discussed the video briefly, then watched the original 25 minute version of Horton Hears a Who. Afterward we discussed the lessons to be learned from Dr. Seuss:
*(obviously) “A person’s a person no matter how small.”
*Never think you are too young to make a difference.
*Can one person make a difference? Yes!
*When EVERYONE works together as a team, great things can happen.
* Be a voice for the voiceless…
Then we made Horton bookmarks – one to keep and one to pass on to a friend. We used grey tag board, fine point sharpies, pencils, a hole puncher, green yarn, pink pom poms, and a low temp. glue gun.
I know my apostrophe is missing – oops! You get the idea! I demonstrated how to draw the elephant part by part. (They loved that we were drawing the elephant’s butt. Maybe they just enjoyed hearing me say, “butt.”) When they were done, I glued the pom pom on for them with the hot glue gun.
We closed with a decade of the rosary.
