|Each workshop starts off with reading the story in the Bible. By the third week everyone knows the story! But finding it in the Bible is still important.

In January there was a Games Workshop using our life-sized board game. Kids played a game modeled after the board game, Cranium.
|See that cube thing? (At the orange arrow). That is the game die. A team tosses it and depending on the picture they roll, they have a certain type of activity that they need to do.||Here the card might have said “Using Playdoh, see how quickly team members can create a pair of sandals.” Of course, meanwhile the leader was asking everyone, how sandals enter into the story.|
There was a Storytelling Workshop…

And “Moses” at Green Wood.
(Okay, so it wasn’t really Moses. Just a couple of guys who did a great job portraying Moses!)
In the Drama Workshop kids acted out the burning bush portion of the story…
|Nice burning bush. Notice all the sheep? There were lots of props. Which ones can you name?|
Meanwhile, in the “Greenhouse” (ages 3 years old to kindergarteners) they were learning about Moses as well. Here they learned about unleavened bread.
In February it was on to the Plagues and Passover portion of the Moses story. There was a different Games Workshop. This one was Bible Bowling. Here the 1st and the 6th graders work together in teams. Teams had names like “the Gnats” and “the Frogs.”
|Kids sure do know the answers to the questions!||When the team answered correctly, they got a chance to knock down the pins.|
There was a Cooking Workshop…
|Mixing up some unleavened bread – in a hurry!|
And there was an Art Workshop where kids made comics using thumbprints…
|Can you tell the story using these thumbprint drawings?||What part of the story does this one tell?|
What was your favorite Workshop?
