Hercules and the 12 (Modern) Labors

Create a poster illustrating the 12 Modern Labors that you would task Hercules with completing. You may use either photographs or your own artistic skills to illustrate the Labors. You must also include a brief description (4-6 sentences) as a caption for each Labor and what the requirements to complete them will be.

You will present your poster to the class, describing the Labors you chose. You must also explain to the class why you chose the Labors you did and how they are a modern equivalent to the Labors Hercules performed in the myth.

Your presentation should last between 60 and 90 seconds.

Focus: ┬The 7th grade program is devoted to God’s saving love as it is revealed through His son, Jesus. ┬Students will develop a deeper understanding of the person of Jesus and will explore His impact on the world by reviewing the doctrine that Jesus is true God and true man. ┬Students will create a vivid portrait of Jesus as the Messiah through in-depth study of Scripture. Reflecting on the Church’s teachings about Mary, the Mother of God, as the first disciple and contemplating the impact that Jesus had on the Apostles, students will achieve awareness and understanding of how their own relationship with Him can deepen and become more personal.

In addition to an in-depth study of Jesus’ early years, students will review the liturgical year including the Advent season. ┬Holy Days, days in honor of Mary, and feast days of the saints will ┬also be incorporated into class. ┬Prayer and reflection are an active and ever present part of our school day. ┬Participation in school liturgies will help students grow ┬in their Catholic identity and in their spiritual lives. ┬Students will further recognize their opportunities to contribute to the global community through their personal service projects and our school service projects.

Discussions and reflections throughout the year will provide students the opportunity to self-discover how they live their faith now and how they will live their faith in the future.

Confirmation preparation, which was begun in 6th grade, will continue over the next several months as students journey toward accepting the responsibility of full membership in the Church. Students are encouraged to live out their call to service – in the name of Jesus- through individual, family, and group activities.
