Standing Tall for God
- Medo-Persia in power and prophecy.
- The unit begins as the Babylonian Empire ends and the Medo-Persians
take over. The Bible stories of Daniel in the lions' den and Esther are studied,
plus the restoration of Jerusalem with Ezra at the end of the 70 years captivity, as
ordered by Cyrus the Mede.
- Adjectives in writing.
- Students research and prepare small daily newspapers about important
people and events of ancient Medo-Persia. These daily newspapers can be done by
groups small enough for everyone to help. The finished newspapers could be assembled
into booklet form to save for posterity.
- Easy to make candy recipes are included for possible Purim
celebrations or Christmas gifts.
|Bulletin Board Ideas:
- "The Lord reigns, let the nations tremble." Psalm
- "The Lord is my light and my salvation--whom shall I
| Supplies Needed:
- Newspapers for examples that students can look at while preparing
their own newspaper.
- Almond bark and other candy making ingredients for Project B.
Four recipes are given that do not involve any baking. Three recipes use the
microwave and one uses the stove.
- If you choose to have groggers in your Purim celebration, you will
need empty plastic soda/water bottles--one per student--and noise makers to put inside
them. See Day B4.
NOTE TO TEACHERS: The materials in this unit do not include
information from your textbook. Guide your students in researching what
the text has to say about the kingdom of the Medes and the Persians.
