Jesus' Life

Friday, October 2, 2020
The life of Jesus seems pretty condensed; but this is an overview lesson. Events are mentioned, but not discussed in detail. Some are in more detail in other lessons like John or Peter. This can be taught in one lesson, but two would give more time for discussion.
The above information Anchor Charts, worksheets and more are in the lesson and application pack.
These are foldable crosses. The first is a fill-in-the-blank and the second has pictures for younger students. They can color while the older students are writing. These are great discussion starters. The last is the completed teacher's visual. Students cut the cross and fold on the dotted lines. They really like these!
Jesus has two Life Sequencing Timelines. There are two pages for the lesson and these are divided by each page. Each page can make a complete lesson with more in-depth teaching. These timelines cover early life and how the events happened at the end of His life. 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.
