Peter's Vision of Animals, Peter & CorneliusDrama Idea
We began the class by reviewing what they knew about the story. We used the "Peter's Vision" worksheet #255 from Calvary's Church website (which has now changed) as a "quiz" and introduction to the story for those new to it.
Then we dropped in to Acts 10 and read only the part about Peter's vision.
I then digressed for a few minutes to talk about "kosher laws." My document on this is found in the Cooking Workshop forum. We discussed rules WE follow in the kitchen today, such as with raw chicken, proper cooking of food.
We re-enacted Acts 10, the entire chapter, by walking through it as it was read aloud. There are plenty of "quotes" for the characters to repeat when they hear the narrator read them aloud. The "blanket of animals" vision is a good prop to spend time doing and discussing. The kids enjoyed tossing some stuffed animals onto the blanket.
Characters: Peter, Peter's entourage, Cornelius, Cornelius' messengers, the Angel who appears to Cornelius, the Holy Spirit who speaks to Peter. The family of Cornelius who are baptized.
