Bible ABC's: L is for Lion
Daniel in the Lion's Den
These lessons can be used without the alphabet theme.
Consider these an update with new ideas and printables!
Use a yellow cupcake liner to create the mane for this lion project! The lion can be cut out or used as a partial page. Click here to download.

This Flip Book is a wordless book. The kids love these! Print, cut, layer and staple. The students can flip through the book and retell what they learned about Daniel. The color and black & white are both included. If you have lion stickers, they can be added, too!

There are two lion color-by-number-codes, a maze, crossword and a word search.

These are just so cute! The kids love to make either of these! Both include color and black & white and an easy instruction page. The build-a-lion could also be used for a student project bulletin board or a paper bag full-body lion if you prefer. There are more lion printables not shown.
These are Concept Charts that are plain so you can use them as to suit your needs. The top one has Daniel and a picture. The bottom doesn't have anything but good/bad choices and consequences so it can be used for any appropriate lesson. Students can write their name or the name of the person in the Bible that you are studying. Another way to add some fun and thought is to use a different color pen for the good choices and the consequences and a different color for the bad choices and those consequences.
 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.
This is not included in the application pack. Click here to download.
These Anchor Charts are included.
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.

FYI: A reader informed me that the word bank for the fill-in-the-blank worksheet is missing the word kingdom. I am sorry for this, and it cannot be corrected because this was one of the files that I could not recover when my computer crashed.

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.

I found these wood masks at hobby Lobby, but look at your local craft store like Michaels for them.
Directions to make a an easy lion pillow!


  1. In the fill in the blank for Daniel and the Lions Den there is a word missing from the Word Bank. We used 'KINGDOM' to fill in the king considered putting Daniel in charge of the ____________

    1. Thank you for letting me know. I would normally correct it, but my computer crashed and took a lot of files with it. This was one of them and the PDF is secured and can't be opened. I will put a note for other readers, so they know. Thank you!


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment! I appreciate it! They will be added as soon as they are approved.
