Sunday Schoolhouse Series Activity - Unit A1
Lesson 5: The Parting of the Red Sea (Exodus 14:1 - 31)
As part of this lesson the children will make Moses parting the Red Sea:
For this lesson each child will need a large piece of brown construction paper, glue, blue tissue paper, 1 pipe cleaner, sea life stickers, markers, scissors, yarn and a copy of the prayer listed in the Classroom Resource Book Year A-Unit 1 for this lesson (page 20).
The children will hold the large piece of brown construction paper horizantally and fold it into thirds. Tear the blue tissue paper and glue it in bunches over the two outside thirds of the paper representing the parting waters of the Red Sea. Glue a copy of the prayer listed in the Resource Book to the middle third at the bottom of the paper. Using markers the children can draw a picture of Moses in the middle of the paper above the prayer. The pipe cleaner will be glued onto the paper as if Moses were holding it as his staff. The yarn can be cut in small pieces and glued onto Moses face as his beard. Add sea life stickers for further decoration. [Option: Give the children scrap fabric so they can make a robe for Moses.]
