Genesis: Jacob’s Ladder
This week's lesson is Jacob's Ladder. There are printables to make your own tri-fold visual and a mini book for Jacob's dream. We also discussed Jacob working for his Uncle Laban and marrying Leah, then Rachel. Next week's lesson will have several choices to print Jacob's family and who his children connect to.

Genesis: Jacob & Esau
For this Jacob & Esau lesson, I set up areas in the classroom and we acted out the lesson. I used the tent that is always up for 'Isaac' to sit in. I set up cooking utensils, the fire and pot for Jacob, then 'Rebekah to cook. I brought a crock pot of meat cooked to add to the sensory part of the lesson. I had a scroll for Jacob and a bow and arrows for Esau. Also, I made arm and neck coverings for 'Jacob' to wear. Most of these are items that I have used for probably 20 years!

Romans: Bee Who Jesus Wants You to Bee
 I couldn't find anything for this Bible lesson online, and it has been one that I have taught for years. There are teacher's visuals for you to print and a student workbook to match the visuals. I had the students fill in the blanks as I taught the lesson. There is also a bee door hanger craft.

Genesis: Isaac & Rebekah
Today's lesson is Isaac & Rebekah. The chapter ends with the statement that Isaac loved Rebekah, so for today's project, I used the love theme! I purchased the foamy door hangers and printed the Jesus Loves Me! with the owls. We also added the small foamy hearts. They loved this project! And, it can be used for almost any lesson for almost any age! More info and the free downloads at the end of the lesson.

Genesis: Abraham & Sarah
Today's lesson is Abraham. We used a lot of stars for this lesson with the projects! You can print a 'Be a Star For Jesus' set of cards that are discussion starters. I used this title so these cards could be used with other Bible lessons. You can print them in color, black/white or in Spanish.
