The lesson “Elijah and the Widow’s Son” teaches children about the story of Elijah, as well as the characteristics of a kind and compassionate hero. Each child will tell what the widow in the story shared with Elijah and describe how Elijah raised the widow’s son from the dead. The children will define and understand “compassion” in the context of both Elijah and the widow’s actions towards each other and will list ways each of them can be more compassionate in their lives. The lesson includes guided instructions for the teacher, including preparation, a script, and suggested activities to facilitate further learning in a fun and interactive manner. This lesson is designed for children between 6-8 years, and is the 28th lesson in the 1st Year Core Curriculum Set and part of the “God is With Us” unit.
