Portals Projects - Honor Them!

Welcome to Portals Projects! Each week we share projects that foster community building, creative thinking, problem-solving and character development. Invite your student(s) to pick a project that interests them to work on for a day or a week. Encourage them to share their plans, products or performances with the Portals community so we can all celebrate and grow together.

Week 36 - Honor

Deuteronomy 5:16 Honor your father and your mother, as the Lord your God commanded you, that your days may be long, and that it may go well with you in the land that the Lord your God is giving you.

Thank You Picnic

Plan and host a picnic to honor your parents and anyone else who has helped you this year. Make certificates, ribbons, and/or gifts to award to them. Example: Patience Award for being patient with me while I mastered my multiplication tables.

Field Day

Plan and host a field day and honor the winners with hand-made medals or trophies.

Live Long in the Land

Challenge: Collect all the tools in the land without touching any of the traps while blindfolded. If you touch a trap you must drop a tool and you cannot pick it back up until you have picked up another tool.

Set up: Measure out a 6 by 6 space and scatter the materials evenly in the square. Players must be partnered with one player blindfolded in the square and the other player on the outside of the square.

Materials: Tools (hammer, flashlight, ruler, pencil, paint brush, wrench, calculator)

Traps (Anything that is not a tool: Toys, clothing, sport equipment, DVD cases).

Time: 1 minute for each tool set out (10 tools = 10 minutes to collect as many as you can)

Heavenly Father

Brainstorm ways you might honor your Father in heaven this summer by looking after orphans and widows in their distress and keeping yourself from being polluted by the world (James 1:27).

Future Diplomacy

Imagine you are an explorer and you have discovered a new land. It is time for you to return to your homeland but the people of the new land would like to continue to have a relationship with your homeland. Write an agreement that will dictate how the people of your homeland and this new land will help each other.  It can be as realistic or fantastical as you want.
