Curriculum for the Teacher!

Who Owns the Land?
part 2

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 Lord God put the man in the Garden of Eden. He put him there to work its ground and to take care of it." Genesis 2:15
Teach the children to work with a happy heart. God wants us to do our work as though we were doing it for him. Grumbling makes the work harder to do.
(Speak with the children)
When you look around at the earth, what do you think about what you see? Do you see all the wonderful works of God? Are you thankful that He loved you enough to give you the earth with all the beautiful trees, plants, animals, flowers, water, and the sky? He says you should help take care of it! He also says to do your work with a happy heart. You can ask God to help you with right thinking when you have work to do.
(Teach the children)
God knows that sometimes we don't want to work. He tells us to work with joy in our hearts. He would not tell us to do something that we cannot do. Doing what is right is not all that matters to God. The way we do it is also very important! We will work better and faster when we think good thoughts while we work.
(Let the Critters help teach the lesson)

Watch the Sunset part 2
Gramma's Critters are busy cleaning the forest. Liam Leapfrog has encouraged everyone to do what is right. They are all cleaning the forest with joy in their hearts. They will be happy when they look back on what they have done. God gave them strength and helped them with right thinking.


Repeat today's Bible verse.
God made the earth. He created us to live on the earth and take care of it. It is better for us and for everyone around us, if we thank God for our blessings when we are working.

Worship God with music.
