Teaching Sunday School Lessons-Visual Learning Activity
One of the ways to become an effective Sunday School teacher is to design activities that correspond with the various learning styles in your classroom. To take it a step further, to enhance the effectiveness, there should be methods that address each style of traditional learning in each lesson. The three traditional learning styles are: Visual, Auditory and Kinesthetic. To refresh your understanding of what each style is, click here.
In this series of blog posts, we will identify an activity to help you build your lessons to address those learning styles in your classroom. Today we look at the Stick Figure Bible Praise.
STICK FIGURE BIBLE PRAISE
(Children and Young Teens)
Pick a section of Scripture that children would understand, a section that provides opportunity for visual imagery.Divide the verses into sections and have students draw the different parts of the verse.For example, children might enjoy this way of celebrating a completed unit on who God is.
Each would read Revelation 4:11 three times, and then draw a stick-figure picture of the different parts of the verse.
You are worthy, our Lord and God, (first drawing)
To receive glory and honor and power, (second drawing)
For you created all things, (third drawing)
And by your will they were created and have their being (fourth drawing)
Perhaps the best drawings could be combined, duplicated and used as the basis for a Scripture reading in a worship service in Children's/Kids church.
Stay tuned for more activities for the auditory and kinesthetic learner.
