Catholic Religious Education Lesson Plans for Sunday Gospel and Readings
Thank you to Laura Grace, from St. Nicholas Chapel at the Pax River Naval Air Station in Patuxent River, MD for generously sharing her Catholic Religious Education lesson plans and activities.  To share your activities and ideas, email with your suggestions.

Thomas the Doubter Game

Introduce game: Who wouldn't believe that Jesus was alive until he saw the marks of the nails on Jesus' hands and feet, and touch the wound in Jesus' side?

Need: Large nail with blunt point, 1 chair

Directions: A student is picked by the teacher to play the part of Thomas. He or she will sit in a chair with their back to the class. A large nail is put under the chair. While Thomas is turned around with his or her eyes closed, the teacher will choose a student to sneak up and take the nail and hide it somewhere on his person. When this person is ready, then everyone will say: “Doubting Thomas, where is the nail?” The teacher will then say. “Does _____ have it?” (This student may or may not have it). Thomas will then stand up and turn around. Will Thomas doubt what the teacher says or will he believe the teacher? If Thomas believes the teacher, he will say, “I believe _____ has it.” Or he will not believe the teacher and guess who might have the nail. Who ever has the nail is now Thomas.
