Focus on Giving Thanks.
Use this detailed image of an elderly woman giving thanks before a simple meal from Dutch painter Nicolaes Maes and the scripture passage from 1 Thessalonians 5:18 to teach children about gratitude.
“In all things give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you all.” -1 Thessalonians 5:18
This scripture learning game is simple to use. Cut out the various pieces and mix and match to recreate the image and encourage scripture knowledge and mastery. A scripture piece and title piece are also included. Advanced learners can use this game to commit the specific passage to memory. The puzzle has four different levels - 4, 9, 12, and 20 pieces. Store pieces in a small stationary envelope. Repeat for review as necessary.
This is especially appropriate to use at Thanksgiving as well as part of a lesson on gratitude or the virtue of thankfulness.
