Write-the-Room: Apostle Paul in Acts Review

www.biblefunforkids.com
This is a fun way to review Paul about his life in the book of Acts.

Once you print one set of visuals and laminate (if you decide to), hang the visuals around the room at eye level for the students in random order. I put #1 on one wall, then went to opposite wall for #2, then #3 on another wall, etc so they had fun looking for them. Print an answer sheet for each student. I attached each student answer sheet to a clipboard.
We walked around the room and the students wrote something about each event in Paul's life in the correct section on their worksheet as we discussed each poster.  There is an outline for the teacher included that has a space for any notes that you want to add before teaching.
I began the lesson with Stephen. Read Acts 6:8. When was the first time we learned about Paul? Read Acts 7:57-60 What name did he use then? Is the book of Acts in the Old or New Testament? Who wrote it? What else did Luke write? We opened to Acts 8:3-4 and read it and briefly discussed it. Then I had the students find poster #1. We walked to it and discussed what they remembered and I added what they didn't. 
I had help for this lesson and while I was doing the posters with the students, Ramona was showing and adding review items to a bag for them to take home. For a larger class, I suggest having everything ready to take home and show each item as you teach. If they take these items out of the bag, they should be able to remember the lesson for each item. Here is the list of items (the underlined is a clickable link to help you. You can also download it and the printables below.):

  2. You always share such great Bible resources. Our church is skipping our year 4 in our cycle and jumping back to 1 to get the Jr. High in sinc with the elementary kids; I was so hopping to dive into this part of the New Testamant with the kids!

    Thanks for linking up to TGIF! Have a great weekend,
    Beth

  3. Brilliant! What a fun way to teach without the lecture. I'm planning to homeschool my one-year-old, so I'm always on the hunt for fun lessons. Thanks!
