Training - Six reasons why you should use more object lessons
Re-discover the power of an object lesson:
Here at Creative Kidswork we offer you literally hundreds of fun, Biblical, easy to do object lessons that you can use within your Sunday school lesson or kids ministry. We at Creative Kidswork really believe in the power of the object lesson. Maybe we can get you also excited about them by giving you six reasons why you should use them.
1. They can help you to communicate an (abstract) Biblical truth in a clear and easy way.
The most important reason why we believe in object lessons is that they can help you to communicate an (abstract) Biblical truth in such a way that even small children will understand their meaning. With the help of an object lesson children can suddenly start to grasp the spiritual truths that you are teaching them. Isn’t that great?
2. Object lessons are fun!
They always carry an element of surprise. “What is going to happen this week? Which cool experiment are we going to take part in this Sunday?” And the great thing is: they are often so easy to do and you can find them all here on the site. This makes it fun not only for the children, but also for you.
3. Object lessons are visual!
Often so much of our Bible teaching in church is based upon the sense of hearing. It is all about listening, but why not use more senses within our teaching and preaching? When children (and adults) can see something, or even better, participate in something like an object lesson, it will hold their attention and it definitely help them to learn better. But not only to learn…...
4. Object lessons will help children remember the Biblical lessons much longer.
Often, weeks later, they will still be able to tell you the spiritual lessons that they learnt from an object lesson. Especially if it comes with an element of surprise, if it is one that the kids can participate in, and if there is a clear link and explanation between the object lesson and the Biblical truth that you want to teach.
5. Object lessons can (very often) be reproduced at home.
This means that in most cases (older) children can demonstrate it at home and show their parents what they have learned that day in Sunday school or in the kids ministry.
6. Object lessons can be of educational value.
What scientific explanation can we give for what happens during the object lesson? Which scientific forces are at work? How does it work and what can we learn from this?
Here at Creative Kidswork we invest heavily in supplying you with as many cool, fun, inspiring and thought provoking object lessons as possible.
