Cathy's Corner: Adam & Eve: The First Home

Wednesday, June 17, 2015
This is a lesson that discusses the Garden of Eden with Adam & Eve. There is a puzzle that also has the black & white so it can be a coloring page for the students. I have also added the Magnetic Board Visuals for this lesson.
 This can be used as a handout for each students also. There is a color visual that can be used for a visual. There is also a plain black & white for the students that can be used as a picture to color. The student can put their puzzle together as you discuss the lesson.

It can also be used as a template to enlarge and trace onto a piece of poster board to be used as a visual. You can put the pieces together as you teach the lesson. As Cathy taught this lesson, she had the puzzle drawn and printed on a large poster board. She added a piece, starting at the bottom. I have included the basic puzzle shape in case you have a large outside visual you would like to cut and glue to the house shape, instead of drawing the graphics I have included. (That is what Cathy used for her teacher's puzzle visual) There are different ideas mentioned in the download for using this printable. Click here to download. (This is an updated version.)
This set has two posters for Creation that can be used with any Creation lesson. Cathy didn't have a magnetic board set with this lesson since she used the puzzle visual. But, I decided to add a set since most of the other lessons have these visuals. Cathy uses these visuals with a magnetic board. She cuts the pieces out, numbers them on the back (this set is already numbered), laminates them and adds thin magnets on the back. Put your title up first, then add and take away each visual as you teach the lesson. They can also be used as visuals alone, a flip chart, and/or a bulletin board. Click here to download the visuals.
