Year One Just Imagine Jesus A1 Wondering at the ability to imagine
Overview Explanation of the content of the unit and how it explores the Salvation Topic and development of the Human Person
This unit explores the concept of imagination a gift given to all human beings by God. The Just Imagine unit begins by exploring the aspect of human
development, that is, wondering at the ability to imagine. Students learn about how the gift of imagination can be used to learn and create. Students are
then drawn to the Salvation Topic, Jesus, by learning about how Jesus used his imagination to teach about Gods everlasting love for humanity, and to
model for humans how to use their imagination to mirror this love. Students then learn about how Jesus followers use their imagination to visualise stories
about Jesus life, and how they use their imagination to show love towards others.
