Isaac

Objectives:

  1. Children should be able to tell the story of Isaac – his birth, the sacrifice on the mountain, and his marriage.
  2. Children should identify Isaac as the son of Abraham and Rebekah as his wife.

 

Possible Lesson Plan:

  1. Open with prayer.

 

  1. Tell the story of Isaac, either from the Read with Me Bible 44-55 or with the flannelboard figures in the cupboard. The Children’s Bible Reader leaves out the story of the sacrifice on the mountain, but does include the story of Rebecca on pages 34-36.

 

  1. Feed the Elephant True/False questions:

                                       True                                                   False

                  Isaac was the son of Abraham.                 Isaac was the son of  Adam.

                  Rebekah was Isaac’s wife.                        Sarah was Isaac’s wife.

                  Abraham was ready to obey God.                        Abraham killed Isaac.

                  Sarah was Isaac’s mother.                         Rebekah was Isaac’s mother.

 

  1. Draw a family tree: Begin with Abraham and Sarah, add Isaac, then Rebekah. You can draw the children’s family trees as well to illustrate Daddy, Mommy, children.

 

  1. Make a paper-plate baby Isaac:

Cut one plate as illustrated, fold.

Color in eyes, mouth, hair, etc.

Cut out paper hands and glue on

      ends of arms.

Staple plate to another plate (the body).

Bend up arms and head.

 

  1. Another choice of craft would be the

Toilet paper tube bracelet (given to

Rebekah):

Cut 2-inch section of tube.

Cut along one side to open.

Ahead of class, paint gold.

Glue trim on edges. Hold with

      paperclips while drying.

Glue on rhinestones or sequins.

 

  1. Close with prayer.
