Build Towers with Blocks

Tower of Bable blocks  Sunday School Bible Game from www.daniellesplace.com

Divide your children up into groups of twos or threes. Give each group equal amounts of blocks. See which group of children can build the tallest tower in three minutes. Comment about the children who are working well together to build their tower. After three minutes, measure the towers to see which group has built the highest tower. Then mix up the children into new groups and play again.

If you don't have blocks, you can make some cheap blocks by cutting up Aquariders from Wal-mart into block sizes. I used the flat Noodle Aquariders and the octagon shaped Aquariders. These are large foam sheets and tubes used in swimming pools. You will find them in the sporting goods department or near the air mattresses in the swimming pool section.

If you don't want to have a contest, you can just tell the children you want them to build the tallest tower they can. Some of the children may choose to work together to build a tower. If you see them working together, comment by saying that our lesson today is about some people who worked together to build a very high tower.

I would like to recommend Danielle's Place to any Sunday School teacher - it's great. Since I started using the site, I am in charge of my own planning. I write to the parents to tell them the lessons and themes I plan to use every six weeks or so. The children have a great time with stories told in an interesting and relevant manner. The crafts speak for themselves - each child leaves clutching their masterpiece. Also, since new lessons are added to the site regularly, I never run out of ideas. There is only one small downside to using the Danielle's Place lessons - the time required for preparation, printing and cutting out. However, when you see the difference these lessons make to the children's spiritual lives, the time spent in preparation is worth the effort. May God continue to bless you and the others working on Danielle's Place. You are making a big difference to childrens lives. Kay

 

 

Tower of Babel Activities

The following ideas and activities are from The Tower of Babel Sunday School Lesson on The Resource Room.

 

 

Knock Down the Tower Bible Verse Review

Before class collect at least nine boxes. Write a word from the Bible verse on the side of each box. The first word of the Bible verse should be on the biggest box. (If you don't have boxes, you can use blocks or something similar.) Review the Bible verse with the children having them place the blocks one on top of each other in order until you have built a tower.) Let the children take turns saying the Bible verse and then throwing a beanbag at the boxes to knock down the tower. Experiment before class to find a beanbag that is not too heavy or too light. You don't want them to knock over the tower on the first throw, but you don't want the beanbag to be too light so that it doesn't move the boxes. Keep playing until your children get tired of the game.

Take Down the Tower Review Game

Before class build two towers from blocks that are exactly the same. Make up questions before class relating to the lesson and/or previous lessons. In class divide your children up into teams and take turns asking them questions. If a team member answers a question correctly, he or she gets to remove a block from his or her team's tower. The team who removes all the blocks first wins.

Saying Hello

Culture kids puppets Sunday School Bible Craft from www.daniellesplace.com

Before class print out the stick puppets and glue them to craft sticks. Hold up one puppet at a time and tell the children what nationality the puppet is and how that puppet would say hello. Have them say the word several times. Then play a game. Mix up the puppets and quickly hold one up to see if the children can remember how that puppet would say hello. Keep picking them up quickly and holding them up until all the children remember how each puppet says hello. Patterns for the six stick puppets are available on The Resource Room.

Konichiwa (koh-Nee-chee-wah) - Japanese
Ya at eeh (YAH-AHT-AY ) Navajo
Hola (OH-la) - Spanish
Howdy Partner - Cowboys from the United States
Aloha - Hawaiian

Find Your Mates Game

Give each child a picture of one of the paper dolls. Tell them not to let any of the other children see their pictures. Ask the children if they all remember how the paper doll picture they are holding would say hello. If a child doesn't remember, take him out of the room and remind him. On the word go, all the children should form groups that have the same puppet (without showing each other their picture). They form groups by saying hello in the language of their paper doll. When all the children are in a group, have them show each other their pictures to make sure they are in the right group.

Make Up Your Own Word

Tell your children that there are 2800 known languages in the world. Today they have learned how to say hello in several different languages. Tell them to pretend that they are at the Tower of Babel and all of the sudden they start to speak another language. They know what they are saying, but no one else does. Tell them to make up a word for hello. When all your children have thought up a new word have them share it with the class. Write the words, phonetically, on the board and then have the children read them all.
