Adam and Eve

Bible ABC's: A is for Adam & Eve
These lessons can be used without the alphabet theme.
Consider these an update with new ideas and printables!
This is an Envelope Flip with Stand-Ups. The inside of the envelope is the Garden of Eden.  Adam, Eve and the tree of good and evil will stand up and can be moved around to retell the lesson. The envelope can be folded up and everything can be tucked inside. I use these for preschool and have them cut and folded so they are ready to use for class. Fold the side flaps over the picture, fold the bottom up and fold the top flap down. Use a paper clip to secure them closed if needed so the pieces don't fall out. I let the students add stickers like animals, flowers, etc. The kids love applications like this! This works best if printed on cardstock. Color and black & white are included.

Here is how I presented this at home, and it can be used the same way in class: They really liked this!  I reminded them the basics of creation. I put Adam off to the side and talked about him naming the animals. You can use the animals from Adam Names the Animals and 'walk' them to Adam and the kids and say what Adam named them. We talked about the tree and the Garden of Eden. Then, Eve 'walked' to the tree and the fruit looked so good! We talked about the Bible not telling us what kind of fruit it was, and the Bible says not to add/take away what from what is written. We discussed serpent (super snake... stretch your arms out) vs. vipers (small snakes... just a small distance between your hands) in the Bible and Eve's discussion with the serpent. Eve took a bite of the fruit and Adam 'walked' over and took a bite. They both knew God told them not to eat it. They both knew it was wrong. We talked about personal responsibility and choices. They understood saying no if a friend wanted them to do something they knew was wrong. They understood consequences. We talked about them realizing they were naked and covered up with fig leaves. Then, they heard God walking in the garden, so they 'ran and hid' behind the flap of the envelope garden! We talked about punishment/consequences and God making them new tunics. They 'walked' away from the garden as part of their punishment.
This is the same basic snake I used with Paul bitten on Malta. The kids love paper bag projects; although there is a bigger one that can be used without a paper bag.
These mazes and color-by-number-codes are in the application pack. The color-by-number-codes and the dot-to-dot are about the serpent. The dot-to-dot has the box at the top with some information about the serpent and space to draw what they think it looked like before it's punishment. Just like the fruit on the tree (we are not told what kind of fruit), we are not told what the serpent looked like.
There is a crossword and word search puzzle.
   The first is a Reader Worksheet. The wording from the scripture is as easy to read as possible with sight words while keeping to the key points with easy to answer questions. The second is a fill-in-the-blank worksheet. Color and black & white are included for both.
I designed the Trip Strip to be a cut & glue timeline. This one shown has lines for the students to write about each event. Or they can write the scriptures. There is another worksheet without the writing space. These can easily be used for mixed age groups. Cut and glue according to directions.

These Event Cards can be used as smaller visuals and they can be shuffled for the student to re-tell the events and lay them in order. The same full-page size visuals and pictures-to-color can be downloaded below.
There are alphabet mazes and worksheets included. These are half-sheets and can be used in Interactive Notebooks. Click here to see a free video on how to make and use Interactive Notebooks. There is a set of 5- and 10-piece puzzles.

There is a one-page foldable book in color and black and white.
These pages can also be cut apart and used as flash cards to put the events in order.
