A Dinosaur Unit Study - Lesson 13
reprinted with permission
Here is lesson thirteen in Cheryl Lazarus' wonderful unit study on dinosaurs.
Open with prayer - and read the memory verse together:
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. John 1:1-5
Scripture Index Cards
Write each verse separately on an index card (i.e. verse 1 on one card, verse 2 on another, etc.)
Show the children the cards and read them in order. Scramble them up and see if they can put them in the correct order. Don't correct them until they are completely done. If you are working with more than one child, ask the other child if they think that is right and to make any corrections they feel are needed. Read it the way they have it, and ask if that sounds right. Praise them for doing such a good job. If it is out of order, correct it, and then say the verses in order again. Have them look over the cards and see if they can pick out all of the words that refer to God (i.e. the Word, him, light). Why did they choose the words they did?
Review any favorite activities from lessons one through twelve (see links listed above). Review and reinforce facts learned in previous lessons.
