Learning Packet for Pilgrimages
Seton Heritage Ministries has made preparing for your pilgrimage easier! We offer a 50-page "Learning Packet" with pre- and post-visit activities for students. Geared toward students in third through eighth grades, the packet features the following printable activities:
- Excerpts from Elizabeth's writings on school and daily life
- Vocabulary words
- Crossword puzzle and word searches
- Suggestions for related class activities
- Sample quizzes (with answer keys)
- A Basilica "photo hunt"
Please contact us for more information!
We hope that ideas from this packet will enhance your pilgrimage to the National Shrine of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, while affording students a chance to gain knowledge about St. Elizabeth Ann and the historical era in which she lived.
