Do you know if something is alive or lifeless?
A fun object lesson / creative activity to help the children reflect on what it means to be alive.
This idea is part of a complete Sunday school lesson on Psalm 150. It will help the children in your Sunday school lesson, youth ministry, Bible lesson, children’s church or children’s ministry to reflect on this powerful Bible passage.
What do you do:Tell:
In psalm 150 the psalmist sings ‘Let everything that has breath praise the Lord’, ‘Let everything that is alive praise the Lord’. Who / what is alive?
Bring some things with you like a fossil, a seed from a plant, some moss, a piece of coral, air in a bag, water in a glass, blue cheese
Ask the children to guess if they are alive or not.
You can also bring pictures/photos. Don’t make it too easy for them.
- Which things are dead, alive, or have ever lived?
- How could they sing for God?
