This could be used as a discussion starter, a game, a craft or a worksheet. Jesus helped Zacchaeus to see the word differently, and that’s what this activity is all about. It’s diversity of uses means I could have placed it in many sections but as there is no worksheet I’ve placed it here in ‘Direct’.
You will need:
transparent red plastic
thin ribbon, elastic or string
printout of tree
double sided tape or a stapler.
Red transparent plastic is not difficult to source, but may take a specialised trip. I found the best thing to use can be found in stationary shops as protective covers for binding documents, they are reasonably priced and sturdy for cutting. Alternativly, try sheets or a roll used for wrapping food goods, wrapping for presents, and individual chocolate wrappers. The thing to be mindful of is that they are transparent and not Translucent or you won’t be able to see through the glasses.
This is a colour exclusion exercise. Jesus didn’t make the world round Zacchaeus change, nor did he heal him of his bad vision, rather he made him see that different things matter. The glasses will dull all red objects and make green objects stand out more. The image of the tree is covered in red, pink, and orange pictures, but with the glasses on only the green objects will stand out.
