From Rocket Ship to Solomon’s Temple



Currently, I have the 1st-2nd grade class doing the curriculum Superheroes of the Bible by Gaia Brown.  This is the second time I have used this curriculum, and it is really becoming one of my favorites.  Sunday was the lesson on Solomon, and it called for a large appliance box to make Solomon’s Temple.  Despite several weeks of notices in our weekly announcements asking if anyone had a box to donate, I didn’t get one. Yes- I probably should have driven to an appliance store and asked for one.  But we’ve had this cardboard rocket in our nursery for a couple years, and it was barely standing leaned up in a corner.  The kids enjoyed a generous quantity of duct tape and the freedom to redecorate this box – I’m not sure it ended up looking anything like the temple, but they moved their class “Arc of the Covenant” (a previous cardboard box project) into the “temple” and were quite pleased with themselves.
