Anointing of the Sick

In continuing the series of how my class reviewed the Sacraments while we studied the life of Fulton Sheen, this was our notebooking activity for the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick.

We connected Anointing of the Sick to the idea that Jesus is our Divine Physician, so I used a doctor's bag as the basis for the notes.
Inside the doctor's bag we drew and labeled the items that a priest would typically use or take with him to an anointing, including a stole, oil oleum, Book of Prayers, aspergillum, crucifix, and a pyx.

Using our textbook as a resource, we took notes on an index card about the basic steps involved in the Sacrament, and we also wrote out the text of James 5:14-15 on another index card.
Click below for a printable of our Anointing of the Sick notes.  You could just give the kids the outline of the doctor's bag and have them draw the items inside like we did, or you can print the document two sided so the items are already in the bag.  I also included the steps of the Sacrament notes and the verse from James in the printable.
