Subject: Teaching Sequences and Series to 11th graders

How do I teach sequences to 11th graders who have never seen calculus before?  
I am a student teaching right now, and am expected to teach this section and 
have no idea where to start.  This is a class called Functions, Statistics 
and Trigonometry.  The problem is that sequences and series deal with 
calculus, and these students have never seen a limit before.
Do you know of any sites that might be able to give me some activities to
help these students understand these things? 
Thank You
