Bible Verse: "I will take heed to my ways, that I sin not with my tongue: I will keep my mouth with a bridle, while the wicked is before me. " Ps 39:1, and Psalm 141:3

In the first lesson children learn what a watchdog and a watchdog group are, and are introduced to the "Watch My Ways" Watchdog Group. They learn that a watchdog's job is to watch and warn its owners when something doesn't seem right or they may be in danger.

Lesson 5 - "Lie Detectors"

Lie Detectors Watchdog Bible Lesson from www.daniellesplace.com


Through this lesson children learn that good watchdogs are good detectors. They can detect noises and smells much better than humans and warn them when danger is near. We need to be good "lie detectors". Lies can sometimes be hard to detect because they come in so many forms such as white lies, exaggeration, breaking a promise, leaving out some of the facts, flattery, etc.

Children practice detecting lies by playing "Detect a Lie" Game. They receive an official "Watchdog Lie Detective" badge when they have completed the game.
