This lesson closely follows the bible story to tell the story of Daniel and his friends, after Jerusalem was captured by King Nebuchadnezzar (Nebbie, for short). There are printable pictures for you to use to tell this exciting bible story, and a Daniel puppet, as well. During the Talk Time, you help kids understand the difference between truth and lies (We show you how to make it fun and easy for kids to understand, using some props). Some other activities that you can do to reinforce the concepts of the lesson is a rhyme with actions that sums up the bible story. There's also a warm-up activity, a (healthy) snack idea, and another fun age-appropriate activity that the children participate in for this lesson that uses Daniel the puppet or Standup Character.
