Cathy's Corner: Joshua and the Battle of Ai

Thursday, July 23, 2015
This is such an interesting lesson! This is part 3 of 4 in this series of Joshua and his obedience to God.
Cathy uses these visuals with a magnetic board. She cuts the pieces out, numbers them on the back (these are 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.
This lesson is intended to be used with the visuals above, but can be used by itself. The numbers in the left margin are the same numbers on the visuals to make it easier for you to teach. Click here to download the lesson.
This worksheet represents Joshua writing on the stones after the sacrifice. Joshua 8:30-34 There is the stone color you see above, and a plain black & white one to print. There is also a page that has the stones set apart so they can be cut & glued by the student to make their own altar. This could also be enlarged to use as a visual. Draw it out, cut, and write on each. You can just discuss some of the old laws of Moses or some of the differences between the old laws and the new laws. The Law of Moses isn't the The 10 Commandments. See Romans 7:12 You can see more about that here. Click here to download these worksheets.
