John: Moses, may I?

Moses (either the teacher, or an older student): Yes, you may.

Teacher: Judy, steal Jason’s hat.

Judy: Moses, may I?

Moses: Moses says no! Why not? (Class can answer.)


  1. Sing “God Gave Moses” to the tune of “Mary had a Little Lamb”:

  6. God said we are not to kill…



  1. Make Moses with a toilet paper roll. Copy the design on the next page. Cut out the lines around Moses’s headdress so his head will stand up. Have children color and glue to a toilet paper tube.

Alternate activity -- Make unleavened bread:

Mix together 1 cup cold water, 2T vegetable oil, 8 T honey, 1 ½ tsp salt, 3 T softened butter, 1 egg. Slowly add the flour and give each child a piece about the size of a ping-pong ball to knead till elastic. Be sure to oil hands before kneading. Grease cookie sheet, smash each ball like a hamburger patty, place on the sheet and poke lots of holes in each with a fork. Bake 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes until golden brown and enjoy.

  1. Close with prayer.
