Christian Fish Puzzle
Ichthus, illustrated in the picture, is the Greek word for fish and was used by the early Christians as a secret symbol to identify each other. This puzzle is used to illustrate that everybody has a part in the whole. This is a good project for a sunday school class. Thanks to Vivian Isackson of Kings Park for loaning her group project to us.

Assign each child a part of the puzzle and a spot to glue it on the fish using the photo as a reference.
