Prayers/readings for study
- Explain the story of Shoghi Effendi’s life: his childhood and youth, his appointment as the Guardian, his life and achievements during the Guardianship. It might help to have a few pictures of Shoghi Effendi, along with photos of the Gardens at Bahji and surrounding the Shrine of the Bab.
- Maps. Shoghi Effendi surrounded himself with maps; they helped him understand people, where they were and what they did. Ask the children to draw a map of their surroundings, including where they are right now (i.e. location of the neighbourhood children’s class), along with other important landmarks such as their house, the post office, their school, etc.
- Blind Man. One (or more) children stand at a point in the room (say, the middle) and the rest stand at the wall. The children along the wall take turns calling out directions such as “two paces north” or “three steps west”, etc., guiding the children in the middle to an objective (such as a piece of furniture).
