Moses #2



  1. Children should learn the 10 plagues.
  2. Children should memorize the 10 commandments.
  3. Children should be able to name Moses as the writer of the books of the Torah, the first 5 books of the Old Testament, and to name the books.

Possible Lesson Plan:

  1. Open with prayer.
  2. Scripture Reference: How about Exodus through Deuteronomy?  Overwhelming? Have the students read these passages in this order:

Exodus 5:1,2,7,8               Exodus 9:10-12           Exodus 14:10-16

Exodus 7:10-12                 Exodus 9:22-24           Exodus 16:13-15        

Exodus 7:20-21                 Exodus 10:13-15         Exodus 20:1-18

Exodus 8:1-3                     Exodus 10:21-23         Exodus 24:15-18

Exodus 8:21-23                 Exodus 12: 21-23        Exodus 32:15-21

Exodus 9:2-5                     Exodus 12:29-32         Exodus 34:1


3.  Learning Game: Name the Order. Write these events on cards and see if the students can put them in order:

Moses found by Pharaoh’s sister              Egyptian beating Hebrew

      Moses cast out of Egypt                           Moses at Jethro’s well in Midian

      Moses married Zipporah                           The burning bush

      Nile into blood                                          Frogs

      Gnats                                                         Insects

      Cattle disease                                            Boils and sores

      Hail like fire                                              Locusts

      Darkness over the land                             Passover

      Parting of the Red Sea                              Death of Pharaoh’s army

Manna                                                       Mt. Sinai

10 Commandments                                   Golden Calf


4.   Make a map of the Exodus. Begin with

a pizza box for each child (Pizza places

will give these to you if you ask.) You can also use a large sturdy paper plate. Mix

up enough salt dough for the class  with

2 cups of flour for each cup of salt. Add

water until play-dough consistency and

food coloring – yellow for land and blue

for water. Draw or glue a map of Egypt and Palestine on the inside bottom of the

box. Sculpt the scenery with land and sea

dough. Add flags for special places.


5.   Close with prayer.
