I have been using your site for the last few years and I think it is great. I sometimes have trouble putting my lessons together and this site has been a great help. Thank you for putting it up. I've been teaching for 39 years and I still need help. Also I love that I can get the KJV lessons which are rare nowadays. Again thank you. Penny, Liberty Baptist church Eadton MA

Work for the Lord Sunday School Lesson

The Israelites Build the Tabernacle - The Israelites used their talents and wealth to build a temple for God. God gives everyone special abilities and wants us to use our talents to work for him. God wants us to work hard at whatever we are doing, not for the praise of men, but of the Lord. The following Crafts and Activities come from the Sunday School Lesson, "Work for the Lord" on The Resource Room

Talk About Work

Ask your children what jobs their parents have. Ask them what they would like to do when they grow up.



Play "Important Jobs" Charades Game

Place your children into teams of twos and give each child a piece of paper with a description of the work being performed. Let the teams take turns acting out the scene and have the other children guess what they are doing. Remind your children that they can't say anything while they are acting. (If you have very young children, have older children or adults act out the scenarios and let the children guess what they are doing.)

Note: My first grade class did an excellent job on acting out the jobs and guessing what they were. I gave them a few ideas of what they could do before they started.

1.Teacher teaching a student.

2.Doctor examining a patient.

3.Window washers.

4.Taxi car driver taking someone some place.

5.Office workers answering phones and typing.

6.Fast food worker and customer.

7.Grocery store clerk and someone buying food.

8.Garbage men picking up trash.

9.Delivery truck driver delivering package to home.

10.Repair man coming to a person's home to repair something.

11.Construction workers building a house.

12.Assembly line workers.

13.Cooks in a fast food restaurant.

14.Lifeguard and a swimmer.

15.Police officer arresting someone.

16.Crossing guard and student.

17.Mother feeding baby a bottle and burping the baby.

18.Gymnastics instructor and student.

19.Coach and student.

20.Farmer feeding animals.

21.Firemen fighting a fire.

2. In class have your children cut the strips apart and try to find the strips that complete the Bible verse. Once a child thnks he or she has found the correct strips, ask him or her to look up the verse in the Bible to see if it correct. If it is, have him or her glue the strip to the sheet.

*Note - Before your children start you can have them try to figure out the verse without the strips by filling in the blanks to make words.



Make a Model of a Tabernacle

The following ideas and pictures were sent in by Connie Henry.

I recently had a need to come up with an idea to make a model tabernacle for an illustration in my first, second, and third grade Bible class. After several nights of searching on the net for a suitable picture and gathering craft ideas I have now completed this project. I used as many items as possible around the house to help keep down the cost. The entire project cost about $40.00. I have attached pictures for you to see the finished product. (You can find a description of the tabernacle in Exodus 25 -27.)

I began with a box that had contained reams of copy paper. I covered the outside of the box with wood grain contact paper and cut the end out of the box. I cut a couple of side groves for square dowel rods to fit in and made two sets of divider curtains between the Holy Place and the Holy of Holies.

I purchased material for the four top coverings. The inner layer matches the first curtain in red, purple, and blue linen. The second top is white goats skin, (fleece material) the third one is red ram's skin (red thick material) the fourth one is badger skin (I found brown fleece that worked just fine). These were sewn like a pillowcase for thickness.

The furniture can be doll house furniture or handmade, as mine were, by one of our elders.

The cherubs on the ark are made from poster board and sprayed gold as is every thing inside of the tabernacle.

The lamp stand was made with gold pipe cleaners with red fingernail polish for the flames.

I found a coloring picture of a priest in his garments and colored them as described in scripture and glued him to 1/2 a toilet paper roll so he will stand.

The shewbread was crackers that I broke into small pieces and placed in a sprayed gold milk jug lid that was then placed on the shewbread table.
