Studying Psalm 100: The workshops we used

Rotation Model logoWe use the Workshop Rotation Model to teach kids about Bible stories. We are helping transform their lives.

One of the stories we’ve taught is Psalm 100. That’s right – the whole Psalm! (Okay, so it is short, with only five verses. Hey! How about making it a project to learn-it-by-heart?)

Did you know that the fast way to find a psalm is to open up a Bible in the middle? Try it and see! (Or read Psalm 100 on-line here.)

Psalm 100 is about being joyful!

Here is the way we are exploring Psalm 100…

Workshop Activity
Games Workshop Use remote control cars to run a relay to help learn Psalm 100.
Missions Workshop Learn about mission work and participate in a service project to pick up around the church grounds. I wonder what mission work has to do with Psalm 100? (Sounds like a good topic for a blog post! Updated: Read it here.)
Photography Workshop Discuss and take photos to ultimately create a photo collage of the seven imperatives in this Psalm: Make, Worship, Come, Know, Enter, Give, Bless.
Science Workshop Participate in science experiments about sound and make musical instruments to make a “Joyful Noise.”
Video/Music Workshop Watch portions of the video Sister Act and discuss the importance of praising God through music.
