Sunday school activities about Gideon for ages 3-6: Gideon believed. He built an altar ...

Activity Preparation:

  • Print a bulletin for each child
  • Have enough pencils for everyone

Activity Instructions:

  1. Give the children a bulletin and a pencil. Have them complete the "Gideon believed. He built an altar ... " puzzle.
  2. Lead the children in this activity.
    • First, have them repeat in unison, "The Lord is peace."
    • Then, explain that they're going to replace the word "The" in the sentence with two claps of their hands. Repeat the sentence, using the code for "The." It should sound like, <Clap> <Clap> "Lord is peace."
    • Next, explain that they're going to replace the word "Lord" by raising both arms in the air and yelling, "Wooo!" Repeat the sentence, using both the codes for "The" and "Lord." It should sound like, <Clap> <Clap> <Wooo!> "is peace."
    • Next, replace "is" with three stomps of their feet. Repeat the sentence. It should sound like, <Clap> <Clap> <Wooo!> <Stomp> <Stomp> <Stomp> "peace."
    • Next, replace "peace" by putting their hands on their hips and whispering "peaccccccce," emphasizing or holding the "s" sound at the end of the word. Repeat the sentence, using all the codes. It should sound like, <Clap> <Clap> <Wooo!> <Stomp> <Stomp> <Stomp> <peacccccccce>.
    • Finally, say the entire sentence without the codes, "The Lord is peace," followed by the sentence in code, <Clap> <Clap> <Wooo!> <Stomp> <Stomp> <Stomp> <peacccccccce>. Repeat the two sentences three times.

Sunday school activity about Gideon for ages 7-12: What happened next?

Activity Preparation:

  • Print a bulletin for each child
  • Have a whiteboard or chalkboard at the front of the classroom
  • Have dry erase markers or chalk
  • Have an eraser

Activity Instructions:

  1. Distribute a bulletin to each child.
  2. Explain to the class, "I'm going to show you an easy way to memorize Scripture. Let's take the verse Judges 6:14, 'The Lord turned to him and said, "Go in the strength you have and save Israel out of Midian's hand. Am I not sending you?"'
  3. Write the verse on the board.
  4. Have the children repeat the verse in unison by pointing to each word written on the board.
  5. Erase two random words from the verse. Have the class repeat the verse. Again, point to each word written on the board. At the blank spaces of the erased words, pause for a moment, so that the children say the missing word from memory.
  6. Erase two more random words. Have the class repeat the verse — this time saying the four missing words from memory.
  7. Continue erasing words and repeating the verse until all of the words are gone and the children are reciting it from memory.
  8. Write the verse on the board again, and ask the children to read it. Point to each word.
  9. Erase the verse completely and ask the children to say it from memory. If necessary, tap on the board for each word of the verse.
  10. Explain to the children that they can use this same technique to memorize other verses of Scripture. Erase one or two words at a time, each time repeating the entire verse until they have it memorized.
