Raising Rock Stars: Jericho

Raising Rock Stars

I made the mistake of telling my kids that in a few days we’d be building the city of Jericho as part of our history lessons and then destroying it.  As you can imagine, that immediately led to our having to do three or four history lessons at once.

 

006So, after reading about it we made our very own city of Jericho to be assaulted by the Israelites.

 

There were some rather unusual people in the city of Jericho.  Namely a giant rabbit, and battle droids.  And part of the Jericho walls was the kitchen sink.

 

011

The Israelites dutifully marched around the city.  And I bet you didn’t know that among the Israelites were pirates, a one-handed British soldier, and some astronauts, but there were.  It’s a little known fact.

 

Oh, and don’t forget the bearded lady in the top corner with the red shirt.

The people of Jericho were properly mocking of the Israelites’ attack methods.  They however did not throw any grape slushies.

 

 

 

016

 

And finally the walls fell down, with much shouting and yelling.  The city fell down.

 

And of course you can’t read about the battle of Jericho without then watching the Veggietales movie.

 

Ahhhh…….  The awesomeness of Veggietales.

 

For more Bible lessons head on over to Carissa at 1+1+1=1.

and then pop on over to Tuesday Show and Tell for some great generic ideas.

  1. So cute! And I am sure you are making an impact on your kids with this activity. I still remember my Grandma letting all of us cousins march around the house 7 times and then blow into our toilet paper tubes and knock down blocks. 🙂
