"Jesus Talks to Zacchaeus" Interactive Bible Lesson Review
Use this interactive activity to review the Bible lesson. Have your children prepare the Bible scenes and characters, and then write a script in their own words to act out the Bible story. The Jesus and Zacchaeus figures are two-sided so that if they are turned around the figures walk in the opposite direction.

Zacchaeus Meets Jesus Conversation Bible Lesson Review Activity Sheet
Children fill in the conversation bubbles to review the Bible lesson. They can use words from the Bible or write the conversation in their own words.
In class have your children read Luke 19:1-10 and then fill in the conversation bubbles with things they think each person said in their own words.
Although the Bible verses don't say Zacchaeus said anything while he was up in the tree, children can use their imagination and the text to imagine what Zacchaeus might have said or was thinking while he was in the tree.
This printable is available to member's on The Resource Room.
Luke 19:10 Bible Verse Search and Find Activity Sheet
Children review the Bible verse by searching for the words to the verse in the picture of Jesus meeting Zacchaeus. This activity sheet is available to members in both KJV and NIV.
Play "Remember My Name" Bible Game for Sunday School
Have the children sit in a circle. Pick a child to start. He says his name and something interesting about himself. The child to his right repeats what the first child said and then adds his name. The child to his right repeats what the first two children said and then adds his name and something interesting about himself. Keep going until all the children have had a turn. For example, the first child may say, "My name is Marty and I like to play softball." The child to his right will then say, "Marty likes to play softball. My name is Steve and I have a dog named Spot." The next child would say, "Marty likes to play softball. Steve has a dog named Spot. And my name is Rudy and I have a brand new bike." My name is Rudy and I have a brand new bike."

2. Make Art Out of Your Name
What you will need:
What to do:
1. Fold a piece of paper in half, lengthwise.
2. Write a name in cursive with a pencil on the top half of the paper making sure that the bottom of the letters are on the line. Go over the name with the pencil so it is dark. Add extra lopes and curly-Q's to make the picture really interesting.
3. Fold the paper in half so the name is on the inside.
4. Rub over the area where the name is with your fingernail or a smooth object. The name transfers to the bottom half of the paper and overlaps the letter that go below the line.
5. Trace over the top and bottom names with a marker. Erase the pencil marks.
6. Decorate the names using different colors of makers or make them into bug, fish, or other creatures.
7. Have your children write the Bible verse under their names.
