Reply to "DRAMA, PUPPET, STORYTELLING Lessons & Ideas for Isaiah foretells the Messiah"

Verse Depictions

Flash mob brainstorming (I guess we add our kernels of ideas to the appropriate workshop areas?)


Reading Isaiah 9:6, my immediate thought was "this verse could be chopped into fragments for a charades game!"

But it occurred to me that anyone who had been there the week before and heard the memory verse (or saw it on a poster on the wall) wouldn't have to guess very hard.


But maybe the students could individually or in groups of 2-3 be assigned a verse part:

For unto us a Child is born/
Unto us a Son is given/
And the government will be upon His shoulder/
And His name will be called/
Wonderful Counselor/

Mighty God/
Everlasting Father/

Prince of Peace


Groups could be challenged to find a way to demonstrate their fragment/idea with

  • a skit
  • or movement with no words
  • or however they want.

The acting would be after a discussion of what the verse means.



[by the way, I was looking for correct punctuation to split this verse, an it looks like it is New King James translation -- if that makes a difference to anyone.....)





okay, so I just wandered over to the writing team's set on this scripture, and guess what?

I already sort of wrote this idea into a plan....


I guess that means I'm consistent.

Or forgetful.
