These lesson plans cover each of the Seven Themes of Catholic Social Teaching (United States Conference of Catholic Bishops) for grades 1-8. They illustrate each principle of Catholic social teaching through stories about Catholic Relief Services’ beneficiaries overseas. They can be used by catechists and teachers to teach young people about Church teaching while helping them learn about some of the realities facing our brothers and sisters in different countries around the world.
