Curriculum for the Teacher!

Who Owns the Land part 1

Teachers may add their own creative skills and special touches. You can use snacks, play games, select music and/or use a study of the people in the Bible chosen by God to teach this lesson. At Calvary Kids Church, we will be having our church drama team present a skit with some of the lessons. Each week is different. Be creative and capture their attention. Remember they will be getting to know the Critters, their personalities, and be able to relate to them as time goes on.

Read the Bible Verse for the day!
The Bible Says:
..."The earth belongs to the Lord. And so does everything in it."
1 Corinthians 10:26
Teach the children that God owns everything. He has asked us to take care of all of His creation. Love God first, people next and then take care of the animals and the earth.
(Speak with the children)
God made the earth. It belongs to Him. He does not create all the pollution and the trash that we see. He wants to use you to help keep His earth clean and healthy for all of His creation to enjoy. If you do your part of the work, and others do theirs, the earth He gave us to live in will stay healthy and beautiful.
(Teach the children)
God has told us to care for the earth. We must always love God first, people next, and then do what is right to care for the animals and the earth. God gave the earth and everything in it to us to care for and enjoy. God says to encourage others to do what is right!
(Let the Critters help teach the lesson)

Who Owns the Land part 1
The wonderful fall weather has been hard on the Kid Cave Forest. Visitors and campers have come to enjoy what God has created in nature. Some of them left a terrible mess. Liam Leapfrog has called a special meeting at the Kid Cave. It is time to begin the work of cleaning up the forest before winter comes. The forest is special to the Kid Cave Critters. It is their home. They are thankful to God and are excited to help tidy it up!


Repeat today's Bible verse.
Winter will be more fun and beautiful this year because the Critters will work hard to clean up the forest. We should always clean up our own messes. Some people have not learned that lesson. God wants us to help when we can. Let's take good care of what belongs to God.

Worship God with music.


Use snacks, games, puzzles, hidden pictures, word search, mazes, and books to further emphasize the current weeks' teachings.
