True                                                                 False

                 Saul held the coats of the stoners of Stephen.       Saul always loved Jesus.

                 Saul was struck blind.                                            Saul was crucified.

                 Jesus spoke to Saul on the road to Damascus.       Jesus spoke to Saul in Galilee.

                 Ananias healed the eyes of Saul.                           Peter healed Saul’s eyes.

 

  1. See what it’s like to be blind: In a pillowcase, put various objects of different textures and shapes. Blindfold the children and see how many they can identify. Fill various small bottles with smelly objects (banana, cinnamon, garlic, pickle, peanut butter, onion, etc.) See if the blindfolded children can identify the things by smell alone.

  1. Make a Picture Projector. Take a paper towel tube. Cut off about 1 inch at one end. Tape two Popsicle sticks side by side to hold the two pieces of tube together, leaving a ¼ inch slit between the tubes. Take a long, thin strip of paper divided comic-strip style into 4-5 sections. In each section, draw a scene from the story. Insert the paper “film” into the “projector”, hold it up to the light, and tell the story with your pictures.

 

  1. Close with prayer: Lord, may I keep my eyes open to all that You do in my life.
