ADAM AND EVE AND THE FALL

 

Objectives:

1.   Children should be able to identify Adam and Eve by name.

2.   Children should be able to tell the story of the Fall.

3.   Children should identify Satan, the snake.

 

Possible Lesson Plan:

  1. Open with prayer.

 

  1. Tell the story of Adam and Eve from the Children’s Bible Reader, pp.21-22 and God is With Us pp 8-11.

           

  1. True/False questions:

                             True                                               False

      Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit.    Adam and Eve always obeyed God.

      God created Eve from Adam’s rib.          An elephant told Eve to eat the fruit.

      Satan as a snake told Eve to eat the fruit. God let Adam & Eve stay in Eden.

      Adam and Eve were thrown out of Eden. God told Adam to eat anything at all

 

  1. Ask the children: Why did God create people? How can people help God?

Discuss disobedience: Do we ever disobey our parents? God? Why is it so easy to disobey when we know better? Why do we choose to disobey? What happens when we disobey?

  1. Make Egg People: Take 2 L’eggs eggs for each student. These will be Adam and Eve. Give each student 2 hunks of modeling clay for bases. For each, remove the short, fat end of the egg and discard. Press the rounded  end of the larger half into the base. Decorate the egg as a face with eyes, nose, mouth, and ears made of felt, beads, paper, etc. Fill eggs with potting soil. Add a scattering of grass

seed on the top. Water. Place in sunlight and keep watered and the grass will sprout and become the hair!

 

  1. Alternate Craft idea: Tree and Serpent. Cut out trunk from brown construction paper and either use real fall leaves or cut leaves from the patterns. Have children glue to blue construction paper and add cotton ball clouds and Easter grass at the bottom. Add lifesaver fruit and a gummy worm serpent. Finally place Adam and Eve figures below the tree. You can either have each child draw a man and a woman OR use the figures from the icon above, enlarge, print, cut out, and glue on.

 

  1. Close with prayer.
