to Sleuth for the Truth

However, this plan is ULTRA-tweakable and can be used with your own method of teaching these books!
A FREE Activity from Kathleen Applebee. Psalm 146 Reader's Theater takes a look at the 10 verses in this Psalm by having Bible characters join the readers to describe events in their lives that show God to be worthy of out praise.
Here is the video I made for the release of this product. I used the original by-hand crowns and clouds, whereas you have access to the printed professional version!
These CONSIDER THE KINGSlessons are already FULL of information, but if you suddenly find you need another resource (or something to split up your class into units of activity):
Here is a cooperative game that features mechanics like "Pandemic." It's got some great additions that make it unique and thematically exciting for your classroom (check the age first to see if your students would enjoy it). FIND &/OR PURCHASE "Kings of Israel" Board Game HERE!
Elijah & the Chariot of FireIf you did not get to talk about this one on Sunday, here is a great video to remember that it's a great one. Let's consider the story of Elijah and the Chariot of Fire, maybe evening learning a new song. The chariot on the biblical timeline represents the Elijah, Elisha, and God's power through them to share His glory and power with Israel.
GOD IS SO GOOD!The corresponding song for this week’s story Elijah and Elisha and all the power God showed to His people is again, “God Is So Good.” You can do motions along with the song to keep the children engaged.
Lesson 4: PROVERBS
TRUST IN THE LORD Word-for-word scripture memory in song is a great way to learn! In this video, The Rizers sing Scripture in the form of upbeat pop/rock songs "to reinforce God's Word in the hearts of kids and families.
"THE DIG'" PROVERBSin The Dig you will meet a character named Doc. He will be your expert and experienced tour guide. Throughout this study of Proverbs, parents and children will explore the everyday choice we all have: walking in wisdom or walking in foolishness. Kids will learn how to walk in wisdom and apply His truth in the areas of friendship, family, emotions, work and more!
Always a good song to learn. This is the slower version with lyrics in case you have some who don't know it.
Go to Danielle's Placeas a great resource for children's studies and activities about Amos.
**JONAH'S JOURNEY A creative quiz game centre to remember important elements in the story of Jonah!
MICAH 5:2 IN THE 4 GOSPELS(click and scroll down for "Micah's Promise"): This may be a great time to have printed and pass out this small bookmark to put it in their Bibles in Micah 5:2. A different bookmark on the gospels is offered in the next Sleuth for the Truth quarter ("The Greatest Story Ever Told") when the gospels are introduced.
Jonah- The story of Jonah and the Fish by Saddleback Kids Ministry.
This is a great video to watch BEFORE reviewing the lesson and deciding what resources to use.
It provides a great "big picture" of Zechariah's visions which foster hope in the future promise of the messianic kingdom. it also gives Israel the challenge (after the exile) to remain faithful to God.
Pay special attention to the eight visions.
