Jesus Feeds the 5000 Lesson

Originally posted by Neil MacQueen

Here's a link to my Feeding the 5000 Drama Workshop Lesson Plan posted in this forum as part of my 4 week lesson set.  It is called:

"The Day After" Drama

--3 imagined skits of the "Small Boy" at home "the day after" he met Jesus.

Blacklights Drama/Song

We did "Blacklights" in drama to tell the story of the Feeding of 5000 to music.
Note: We also performed it, for the congregation a few months later, at our annual Sunday School Anniversary Service, a way to tie in stories covered that year.

I've posted the idea over in the Blacklight manual here at this site, under: Lessons & Resources / WORKSHOP DESIGN & TEACHING RESOURCES / DRAMA WORKSHOP / Blacklight Theater Instructions

To go directly to the Feeding 5000 blacklight idea, found in the above manual, click here Song:  "The News".  Song information is included, as well as, a list of props.

Here's a video of our kids performing the story of Jesus Feeds the 5000 in our Drama Workshop using "motions" to re-enact and remember the story. The first part is a rehearsal with the younger kids.
