Activity Day–Clara Barton

This month, Clara Barton was our famous lady from history.  In case you don’t recognize the name, Clara was the founder of the American Red Cross.  Clara was moved by compassion towards those who were sick, hurt and in need and took action.  

This was a fun class.  We learned about sympathy, empathy and compassion.  I tied it in with the story of the Good Samaritan from Luke chapter 10, and doing unto others as you would have them do unto you.

We made these adorable Good Samaritan band aid matchbooks so that the girls can be prepared to help anyone in need.


I found some cute little plastic boxes at the Dollar Tree and bought supplies to make first aid kits, and then then girls decorated them with stickers.   We learned about how and when to use 911.   We also practiced some basic first aid skills like cleaning a wound, bandaging, ice packs and splints.



Books we used:

Clara Barton, Founder of the American Red Cross; by Barbara A. Somervill
Clara Barton, Amazing Civil War Nurse; by Mary Dodson Wade
First Aid & Family Health; by Fermie Keech
Baby and Child Emergency First Aid Handbook; by Mitchell J. Einzig, M.D.
