This was *the* burning question in 2nd grade this week. Teaching current events is a BLAST! And in order to help my students understand the significance of Pope Benedict’s resignation and the magnitude of the upcoming conclave, we made a timeline.  The lesson also connected to math when we looked at fractions and percents: two thirds of the students were born while Bl. John Paul II was still pope. One third was born during Benedict’s papacy–and one student was born between popes!

Thanks to www.happysaints.com for the John Paul II and Benedict XVI “head shots”!
