Synopses & Reviews
More than 80 projects drawn from archaeological evidence and Bible descriptions make Old Testament days come alive in this activity guide for children ages 5 to 12. Children can enjoy a desert picnic of dried figs, goats milk cheese, and lentil stew, or make a loose tunic like the one young Isaac wore on his familys trek to the Promised Land nearly 4,000 years ago. They can make a painted throwing stick or a wooden paddle doll like the ones Moses might have played with in the Pharoahs palace, and build toy instruments like those the Israelites used to celebrate their return to Jerusalem in approximately 538 B.C. Games, recipes, crafts, and just enough historical background provide plenty of educational fun for home or school.
More than 80 activities and projects provide insight into life in the Middle East during the period covered by the Old Testament. Children can enjoy a desert picnic, make a loose tunic, eat goat cheese and more. Color illustrations throughout.
