I thought this would be an interesting creative process for some of the Bible stories that require some understanding of sequencing (i.e., Joseph, Moses, Holy Week, Paul's Journeys, etc.)
Children design (on paper) a museum. They decide where different "artifacts" would go and how to display them.
I got this idea from a secular link Kennedy Center -- Arts Edge which has a lot of neat ideas of how to teach with the arts which could be adapted to WoRM.

That's a neat idea -- and one that would be fun to actually do in a room rather than just on paper.
Create books or scrolls that tell the sequence of the story. One way to do this is with narrative picture scrolls (no words, just pictures). Have students draw scenes from a Bible story on a scroll. For younger students this can be as simple as the beginning, middle and end; more details for older students.
For the ends of the scroll - use dowel sticks or create your own "dowel" from tightly rolled (and glued) cylinders of brown grocery bag or brown kraft paper.
For the scroll paper use drawing paper glued together to desired length or cut up a roll of plain wallpaper.
Tie the scroll closed with yarn.
A lesson that used narrative picture scrolls (for lesson - Joseph in Egypt) can be found by clicking here
Body tracings of different people in the story, then put in order of appearance, work well.
I like the "link" to lessons with examples. Very helpful.

We recently created 'Thumbody's in Trouble' comic strips for our art workshop on Adam and Eve. This would be adaptable to any story.
The inspiration came from Ed Emberley's thumb print art books for kids. (See favorite art books topic for name of book.)
The books show how to create people, animals, things, show movement, emotion, etc all by starting with a thumb or fingerprint.
After reading the story the student's were given long paper strips, divided into fourths. They chose their own way of telling the story in four frames with 'thumbodies'.
I found non permanent WASHABLE ink ink pads at Michaels and made sure there were plenty of baby wipes for cleaning fingers between prints.
would be a cute way to sequence a story.
