Who is the Holy Spirit? Intro or Review (Editable for Google Classroom!)


Confirmation season is drawing near in my neck of the woods, so the Holy Spirit has been on my brain quite a bit! Regardless of when the Sacrament of Confirmation takes place in your school or parish, it's never a bad time to help your students grow closer to the Third Person of the Trinity.

Using this Catholic Central video (which is less than five minutes long), I set up some slides to help provide a quick intro to the Holy Spirit (or this could also function as a great review!). I really like using the Catholic Central videos in my classroom because they are short in addition to being both informative and entertaining. The videos make great tools as a quick overview for important material that can then be taught with more depth based on what we are studying.

The accompanying slides are meant to slow down the info and record the content shared within the video. The students could also do their own research (even using their own Bible or Catechism to complete the questions). Simple, but effective!

If you'd like to assign the Google Slides to your students, remember that you have to make a copy in order to edit. This is just a template. That also means that once you make a copy you can edit to your heart's content, making it just right for your students. Not a Google Classroom user? You also can download this as a PowerPoint and share through other classroom sites. And I also have a printable version too if you want to go low-tech (which I try to do as often as possible!).

If you are using this activity as part of Confirmation prep, I have lots of other resources you might like!
