I’m teaching our Wednesday night class at church on the Resurrection. I have students ages 2.5 to 12 and it’s a challenge to keep them all engaged.
I recently taught a lesson about Passover and Mardi Gras.
We’re using Grapevine Studies as our core Bible lesson. Here’s my board for the second page of the lesson. Jesus explains about being a servant leader, accuses Judas, and talks about Communion.
I’m loving these new Traceables for the little kids. My son, Alex, is a huge fan!
The second part of the lesson was a Mardi Gras story. I love the lesson in The Greentail Mouse by Leo Lionni. I focused on how God looks at our hearts and we shouldn’t fear. Judas and the Jewish leaders feared Jesus like the mice in our story feared truth.
We listened to track 12 of Songs for Saplings.
Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart. 1 Samuel 16:7b
Then the students made masks with feathers, sequins, and tissue paper.
