2.9. Joshua & the Battle of Jericho

Friday, July 14, 2017
Joshua and the Battle of Jericho is lesson #9 in the second quarter of our preschool Bible study.
We did a lot more hand on for this lesson and the kids really enjoyed learning about Joshua!
My Ark of the Covenant and the priests visual.

Remember last week we learned about the 12 men that went to spy on the new land? They brought back grapes so big, they had to be carried between two men on a stick! Joshua and Caleb had faith that God would be with the people in the new land. Joshua was the new leader after Moses.  
Joshua sent two men to spy out Jericho. They went to Rahab’s house and stayed there. When the king’s men came looking for the spies, Rahab hid them on her roof and covered them with stalks of flax.
Rahab told the two spies that she had heard about God’s power. She asked if they would save her and her family when they took over the city. They told her “If you keep our visit a secret, we will protect you.” Since she lived on the city wall, she let them down through the window. They told her to make sure everyone stayed in her house when they attacked and to leave a scarlet rope hanging from the window, so they knew which house was hers when they attacked.
God told Joshua to have all the men of war march around the city 1 time a day for 6 days and do not talk. The 7 priests will carry the rams’ horns each day. BUT, on the seventh day, you will march around the city 7 times and the priests will blow the horns. When they make a long blast with the horns, all the people will shout, and the wall of the city will fall flat!
They did exactly as God told them to! They marched around the city once a day for six days. Quietly. They didn’t talk at all!
On the 7th day, they were up early in the morning, and they marched around the city seven times! And then, they all shouted very loud! and the city of Jericho fell down flat! Just like God said would happen!
Joshua told the two spies to find Rahab and her family. The spies took Rahab and her family from Jericho to the Israelites camp and kept them safe.
Joshua stayed faithful to God and God was with him.
Lesson found in Joshua 6.
I wanted a simple printable for this lesson, because we stacked up boxes before class. We had the students walk around 'Jericho' quietly six times (counting day 1, etc.) for each day. Then, march around the 7 times. They shouted on the seventh pass and knocked the boxes down.
