Acts 9: Saul Escapes Damascus

Wednesday, June 7, 2023

Acts chapter 9 is divided into the three different events:

Saul Blinded by the Light (Acts 9:1-19)

Saul Left Damascus in a Basket (Acts 9:20-31)

Peter with Aeneas and Tabitha AKA Dorcas (Acts 9:32-43)

Most of the worksheets have the teacher's answer sheets included.

Most of the worksheets with scripture are paraphrased to fit the worksheet space.

The 3-D Damascus is super easy to prepare and fun for the kids and can be used as a visual, too! Color and black & white are both included. To create the 3-D scene, Cut on dotted line along the city & cobblestone sidewalk. Fold the scene in half. Cut on dotted lines. Fold bottom of scene forward on solid line. Fold forward on top line. Fold backward on the inside line. This should be printed on cardstock to work best. Cut Saul on the solid lines and fold on the dotted lines. He can be used as preaching or leaving Damascus. String, embroidery floss, or thread can be added to the basket so it can easily be taken down the wall for Saul to escape. Stars can be added to the sky for more fun.

The 3-D basket can be printed on paper or cardstock. This is color only due to the limited backgrounds available. Add string at the top so the students can take Saul up and down a wall to review the lesson.

To make the Flip Book, cut on the dotted line to separate the top from bottom. Cut the bottom pictures out on solid line. Layer in order and staple as shown on the gray rectangle. Fold the Foldable Book in half lengthwise, then fold in page 3, then fold the front cover on the line. The Spinner and Foldable Book are in color and black & white. The Flip Book and Spinner work best if printed on cardstock or heavier paper. Fold the Foldable Book in half lengthwise, then fold in page 3, then fold the front cover on the line.

The first worksheet is a fill in the blank. Instead of numbering these 1, 2, 3, etc., they are numbered with the verse to read first, then fill in the blanks using the Word Bank. The third was designed for those asking for cut & glue. It is an easy scripture to cut out the words and glue them in order. The students will also write out the verse. This was a suggestion from a teacher. The next is a word search and crossword puzzle. There is a Reader Worksheet which has pictures for the students to write the number under each to put them in order after reading the summary of the lesson. There is a number code and alphabet code worksheet.
Jesus is the Son of God. Acts 9:20b

These printables can be used for this lesson and any other appropriate lesson and were kept plain intentionally for this purpose. A key verse was chosen from the chapter to use for discussion, memory work, and copy work. Students can color or paint the designs on the banner, door hanger and bookmark and poster. Stickers can be added. String or ribbon can be added to the banner to hang and on the bookmark.
