Welcome to the second week of this 13 week series of lesson ideas created for teens! These are written by my daughter. She is teaching the teen girls on Wednesday evenings. This week she had a couple of experiments that were fun and educational.

Peter Heals Aeneas & Dorcas

We are studying Peter healing Aeneas & Dorcas. Dorcas was a well loved woman and was known for her good deeds. The project today is accordion shirts. Depending on your time in class, you can have them prepared or let the students cut them out and attach the two parts. They can draw or write things they can do to be a helper like Dorcas.

Teen Tuesday: Being Thankful

Teen Tuesday: Being Thankful
 For this Teen Tuesday series, we will be sharing ideas from my daughter's Wednesday night classes with the high school young ladies. Though, these lessons are suitable for young men also.  This first lesson is about being thankful and there were a couple of interesting discussions... but, I can't tell you about that without giving away the lesson plan!

The Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost

We begin our IFA: Investigating facts in Acts lessons this week with The Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost. The Apostles appointed a new Apostle to replace Judas and they taught and baptized all who would listen. There is a flame headband, which is not a new concept. I think I had one as a kid! There is also a flow chart worksheet that can be used with the lesson, or afterwards for a review.

Birth of Jesus Printables

I have recently added some items to my TPT store and while doing that, I needed to update the downloads. These printables started out to just be the file folder game with new graphics, but as I worked on them, I came up with all new ideas! So, that led to a new blog post to share them here. And, I just found another new set of graphics, so I will think of more ideas! Maybe, some projects with these.

Jesus Has Breakfast & Returns to Heaven

This is the last lesson for the Life of Jesus series! Next summer I will begin to add lessons from Jesus that I didn't have time to teach, But, now I am excited to begin the book of Acts! There is a new Flow Chart that discusses Heaven with scriptures and Lift-the-Flap fill in the blank answers.

My Visit to the Creation Museum

Today's post is written by my daughter. She was able to visit the Creation Museum and we are sharing thoughts and photos from the visit. I was able to visit when it just opened up and they have added a lot since my visit. We really enjoyed it! My thoughts that I have added are in (parenthesis). And, I have added a Pocket Facts Printable that can be used with or without going to the Creation Museum. It can be used to look at some Bible Facts Creation to Jesus Christ & Paul.

Jesus is Crucified

I have divided these last days of Jesus more than the last time I posted them. I plan to have a quarter (13 weeks) of the Later Life of Jesus next summer with a more in depth study and different projects and a lapbook. This week there is a layered heart for the students to fill-in-the-blanks while discussing some of the things that Jesus did to show how much He loves us.

Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane

http://kidsbibledebjackson.blogspot.com/
This week is Jesus in the garden. I hand out the Malchus mask and the kids loved it when they saw the ear was removable! While I taught the lesson, I had a plastic ear in my pocket and when I came to the Malchus part, I used my sword and cut of my right ear! Oh, they love that! You can see the ears here. There is a praying hands printable.There are a lot of different things to learn about prayer, but for this lesson, I decided to discuss what to pray for and how to pray. I used it as a conversation starter to discuss prayer and this can be used for several different lessons.

The Triumphal Entry of Jesus & The Lord's Supper

The printable for this lesson are Life of Jesus Task cards and they are cards that can be used for Life of Jesus review or... more ideas are listed! We are getting to the end of the life of Jesus, and I have divided the next several lessons more than I originally planned.

IFA: Investigating Bible Facts in Acts Supplies

There were so many great items for sale this Spring for VBS that had to do with Investigators! I started at Hobby Lobby and my head just filled with all kinds of ideas! Then, Oriental Trading had a lot, so I had even more ideas in my head! Then, Lifeway had their VBS with the Agency D3, and I found some items in their store! Since I thought Investigating Bible Facts is a great idea anyway, I decided to teach the 30 weeks of Acts with this theme. I will have bulletin boards, worksheets and different ideas for this. When I can, I will have the idea usable for any Bible lessons, not just Acts.

Parable of the Lost Sheep & Lost Coin

http://kidsbibledebjackson.blogspot.com/
This is such a fun lesson! I love watching the kids enjoy learning the Bible and they love this one! I like teaching most of the parables, but The Prodigal Son and this one seems to be favorites! There are sheep and coin printables that are scriptures that you can hide or shuffle for the kids to put in order.

Investigating Facts in Acts: Bulletin Boards & Posters

http://kidsbibledebjackson.blogspot.com/ 
I made all new bulletin boards and posters to go with Investigating Facts in Acts (IFA). I realize that investigating, detectives and secret agents are not a new concept, but I did use the graphics that I could find to create new ideas and printables for the book of Acts and Life of Paul.
 
It all started when I found so many great items for sale this Spring for VBS that had to do with Investigators! I started at Hobby Lobby and my head just filled with all kinds of ideas!
