Abraham Preschool Projects

I am creating projects for the 3 year old class on Wednesday nights this quarter, and I thought I would share what we did. Abraham is divided into 3 lessons.

The first lesson about Abraham is in Genesis 12. God told Abraham that He was going to show him a new land. Abraham would be a great nation. Abraham would be blessed and his name would be great. Abram was 75 when left Haran. Abraham took his wife Sarai and his nephew Lot. The project is for preschool and I had a basket of items that would begin the discussion. For instance, a blanket. Do you think Abraham took a blanket and pillow? Then, they could add their picture to their suitcase. These items Abraham might have taken and did not necessarily go in a suitcase (which he wouldn't have used like we do). So, then you add electronics, sunglasses, etc., things that we have now that they didn't then.

Directions are in the download, but you can glue the sides of the suitcase for the students to put the items in, or let them glue the pictures to the inside and they can open and close it. I also gave them these stickers to add to the outside of their suitcase. When I use stickers with them, I cut theirs into strips so I can just hand each person their stickers so they can asdd them how they want to.

This map is for Abram and Lot choose which land they want. Abram let Lot pick his first, and Abram took the other. He made good choices. 
I printed a teacher's visual in color and the students in black and white so they could color. Print, cut on solid lines and fold people on dotted lines. They will stand up and students can move them around the map. When they were done re-telling us the lesson, we rolled the maps up and tied them with a ribbon. This includes the color and black & white. Click here to download.

I couldn't decide exactly what I wanted to do with project, so after several days of thinking about it, this is what I ended up with. And, the kids will love it! So, there are the two backgrounds in black & white only for the kids to color. These can be used together or separately. I printed mine on each side of cardstock. Then, I folded it into thirds (before class). It will stand for them to use as a background and they can just bend the folds to turn it around. Abraham and Sarah are in color only because I will have them cut and ready for the kids to use. They will also add star stickers to the stars and sand page. Click here to download the Abraham Panorama.
