King Josiah's Life

Friday, June 26, 2020
King Josiah is a great lesson. This combines what we read in kings and chronicles.

The following posters, worksheets and more are in the lesson and application pack.

A couple of these posters can be used for other lessons, too!

Since there are specific ages noted for Josiah, I created this timeline.
This would be a great addition if you are keeping notebooks.
This is a King Josiah's Life Sequencing Timeline. There is a completed one (right) for 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 line, they will have a lift-the-flap with the information under each photo. 
This Match-It Review Game was designed to be used with this lesson; although it can be used with any Josiah lesson. Click here to see it.

I found this really cute idea here for this book style. I wanted to use it for a preschool Bible lesson. They loved using King Josiah on a string. As you review the lesson, they can place Josiah on top of each page. There is a happy and sad Josiah. If you glue the front cover leaving the top open, it creates a pocket to store King Josiah in.
