Teaching the Ten Commandments to Youth

The Ten Commandments are the Laws of God’s covenant given to Moses on Mount Sinai. These Laws were followed by the Israelites and are God’s Laws for us, today, as well. The Ten Commandments show us as Catholics how to live a life of love. The first three commandments help us to show love and respect for God; the other seven to show love and respect for others and for ourselves.

Though important to our faith life as Catholics, the Ten Commandments are not always easy to teach. To assist Catholic catechists, teachers, and parents, I've compiled Ten Commandments activities into a printable toolkit. Together, these free Ten Commandments resources will help you in easily and effectively teaching youth at every stage of their religious formation.

These Ten Commandments activities and resources will help you effectively teach youth at every stage of their religious formation.

Using the Ten Commandments Activities

The Teaching the Ten Commandments to Youth Toolkit bundles three separate resources.

#1 Stone Tablets Handout

Use the first resource - a printable handout that lists the Ten Commandments on stone tablets - as the Ten Commandments are taught. This resource is available in multiple options to best meet your needs and printing preferences. Catechists might want to display the largest size in a classroom or community setting and send the smaller size handout with children to share with their families at home. Full color or black and white options make customizing simple. Black and white pages are wonderful canvases for primary and intermediate student’s creativity

#2 Ten Commandments Coloring Page

Use the second resource – a Ten Commandments coloring page – with preschool or primary aged children. This resource can accompany the story of Moses receiving the Ten Commandments from God. Share the story from a children’s Bible before you distribute the coloring page. Children can take home their completed page to share with family members. Challenge children to recount the Bible story to family members at home as well!

#3 Teaching the Ten Commandments eBook

Use the third resource - Six Tips for Teaching The Ten Commandments Effectively eBook – to find inspiration when teaching the Ten Commandments to youth. The eBook will help catechists teach about the covenant and the Commandments without it seeming like just another list of do’s and don’ts. Written from the experience and perspective of a middle school catechist, this eBook suggests things to do and to avoid doing while teaching the Ten Commandments to students.
