Raising Rock Stars and History: Abraham and Jacob

So this week we had another set of Biblical history lessons: Abraham, Jacob, and Joseph.

While I read to them about these guys the kids colored some pictures to be made into mini-books (don’t you love the look on Superman’s face?).

I found the Jacob ones here, the Abraham ones here, and the Joseph ones are from the Story of the World activity pages.

 

After reading the lessons we watched the Veggietales episodes that related.  They thought the Abraham one was okay, but were very amused by the Ballad of Little Joe.  After reading about Jacob in our history book we went back and read it in the Jesus storybook Bible, which had the story of choosing the two wives told from a different viewpoint than I’m used to, and I rather liked the way they told it.  I’m really loving the Jesus Storybook Bible, it’s pretty cool.

 

So, there you have it.  It’s a rather tame lesson after the Minotaur and the mummy (which is still slowly mummifying), but not all weeks can be amazingly interesting.
