Abram Esteems Lot Bible Lesson

Abram and Lot Conversation Coloring and Activity Sheet
Children color the picture of Abram talking to Lot. As they work read Genesis 13:5-14. Talk about what they see in the picture and what isn't shown from the text that was read. Ask them what they think Abram is saying to Lot and have them write it in the conversation bubble.
Abram and Lot Puppets and Background
Children use stick puppet of Abram and Lot and this stage background to act out and review the Bible story. Place your children into groups and have them take turns acting out the story with the stick puppets. They may want to make herdsmen, animals, and more people puppets. If they don’t want to use puppets, they can act out the story without puppets.
Candyland or Toyland?
1. Before class set up Candyland and Toyland - Place candy on one side of the room and cheap toys on the other.
2. Divide your children up into "Abrams" and "Lots". "Abrams should stand in one line and "Lots" in the other.
3. Have the first "Abram" and "Lot" in line come to the front of the room.
4. Tell your children that Candyland is on the right and Toyland is on the left.
5. Instruct "Abram" to say, "Lot, let's not have any fighting between your herdsmen and mine, and between me and you. Let's split up. If you decide to go to the right, I will go to the left.
6. "Lot" then gets to choose which way he will go and "Abram" must go in the opposite direction. If "Lot" picks Toyland, he gets to pick one toy. If he picks Candyland, he gets to pick one piece of candy. "Abram" must go the opposite direction and pick one item from his land.
7. Keep playing until you get to the end of the line. Ask the "Abrams" how they felt about letting the "Lots" pick first. Ask them if they think Abram in the story felt the same way. After the "Abrams" have had a chance to share their feelings, have all the "Abrams" turn into "Lots" and all the "Lots" turn into "Abrams" and play the game again.
Left and Right Game
1. Remind your children that Abram let Lot pick which way he wanted to go. If he went to the left, Abram would go to the right. If he went to the left, Abram would go to the right.
2. Have your children stand in the middle of the room. Instruct them that they should do the opposite of what you tell them to do, not what you are actually doing. For example, if you say, take three steps to the right, they should take three steps to the left.
3. Start the game by doing exactly what you tell them to do, and make sure the children are doing the opposite (going in the same direction). If you are facing them, they should be going in the same direction as you, because they are supposed to do the opposite of what you say. Once they get the hang of it, do the opposite of what you say. For example, jump two steps to the left as you tell them to jump two steps to the right. If you are going in the wrong direction, then they should be going in the opposite direction as you. If a child doesn't do the opposite you say, he must sit down. Keep playing until only one child is standing. You can also have your children take turns giving commands.
4. This can get very confusing because they are facing the opposite direction as you and they are supposed to go in the opposite direction as you, which is really the same direction. If you just remember that when you do what you tell them to do, they should be going in the same direction as you, and when you do the opposite of what you tell them to do, they should be going in the opposite direction as you, it won't be as confusing. If you get too confused, have a helper stand with the children and let the helper tell them if they are out.
1. Take three steps to the left.
2. Jump to the right.
3. Hop two steps to the left.
4. Shuffle to the left.
5. Slid to the right.
6. March to the left.
7. Walk backward to the left.
8. Walk forwards to the right.
9. Go in a circle to the right.
