Cathy's Corner: Joshua: The Sun & Moon Stand Still

Thursday, July 30, 2015
This is number 4 of the Joshua series which I found very interesting!
Cathy uses these visuals with a magnetic board. She cuts the pieces out, numbers them on the back (these are numbered on the front), 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.

This set of visuals also includes a black & white map that can be printed for the students and a black & white plain map that they can write the cities in. You can also use the black & white map to enlarge onto poster board for a large teacher's visual aid. Click here to download the visuals.
A reader left a comment asking about crowns for this lesson. That is a great idea and kids will wear crowns any chance they get! I created these black and white so they can be printed onto color cardstock or paper. You have a choice to print one crown with all 5 kings on it, or five different crowns which would be great to use and let the students act the lesson out. Thank you Janet for the idea!
This lesson was written to be used with the above visuals, but can be used on it's own. The numbers in the left column are the same as the numbered visuals.

  1. Debbie, I can picture kids really wanting to wear the crowns of the five kings. Do you make them wearable? I remember really enjoying acting out bible stories. The dropbox download is a great way to pass on graphic info, isn't it? I'm glad that I'm your neighbor at Sunday Stillness.
