Gideon's Life

Friday, April 10, 2020
Gideon was amazed that God chose him to save Israel. He obeyed God and there was peace in the land after the battle. He was a judge for 40 years and, like always, the people reverted to their sins.
The following posters and worksheets are included in the lesson and application pack.
These Anchor Charts are included in the lesson and application pack.

There are assorted spinners to review the events of Gideon. The one shown is completed. There is a cut & glue in color and black & white. These can be used during the lesson to let the students glue the correct picture in the numbered area and then review after the lesson. This keeps the children that have a harder time focused.  There is a completed one (photo #2) if you do not want to cut and glue and a teacher's visual with the numbers and pictures. This can also be used if you are keeping a student notebook.

Included is a Life Sequencing Timeline (photo #3) for Gideon. There is a completed one (far right) to use as a teacher's visual, if you are keeping a notebook and just want it as a chart, or you do not like the cut and glue. If the students only put glue above the dotted lines, they will have a lift-the-flap with the information under each photo.
