The Glory Be is a common Catholic prayer that we recite during the Rosary and the Liturgy of the Hours:
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning is now, and ever shall be, world without end.
The Glory Be is a doxology, meaning it is an expression of glory and praise to God.
I put together this collection of Glory Be activities and worksheets to help children learn the prayer and reflect on the meaning of the words in their lives. But first, here is a video explanation of the meaning of the prayer for kids:

Give Glory to God Activity
“Whatever you do, do everything for the glory of God.”1 Corinthians 10:31
Have students list of every activity they have done so far today (i.e. ate breakfast, brushed teeth, rode the bus to school, math assignment, art class, luch, recess, sports, etc.). Next to each activity, have them write down one way they can give glory to God during this activity.
Be sure to provide them with examples and ideas. For instance, they can give glory to God when I play basketball at recess by giving thanks to him for the success. They can give glory to God when they brush teeth by being grateful for toothbrushes and toothpaste. They can give glory to God when a teacher compliments them by giving credit to God instead.
Here is a worksheet you can use with students for this activity:
