This is a really VERY good example of a "Newscast" approach to making a video in a Drama Workshop.

While the lesson covers a seemingly impossible number of Bible stories, this newscast approach should make it memorable.  

The video obviously has some "post-class production" done to it, but these days, making videos look like this is pretty easy if you have the time, know-how, and right tools (which many teens do, btw).

"Newscast" Video

We did a "Newscast" for our Drama Portion of our study of "The Miracles of Jesus".  

The video is being shown at church this Sunday in worship.

It isn't perfect, but it came out CUTE!!  And the kids had a blast making it.


Included in this video are the following miracles:

  • Raising of Lazarus
  • Feeding of the 5000
  • Ten Lepers (see note below*)
  • Blind man healed with mud in his eyes
  • Peter walks on water

*Note:  The portion of this video which shows animated Legos was created by PowerSurgeKids of First Assembly of God in Warner Robins, GA.  Permission has been granted to make use of their video.

Miracles of Jesus Ideas

(Wormy Note: These ideas can be adapted for various healing miracles.)

We are right in the middle of our Miracles of Jesus Lesson Set right now and just wanted to share what we did with everyone.

Video: We are using the"Miracles of Jesus" Nest video as the base line stories. Every workshop chose a different miracle from the video (5 all together).

Drama - The children are acting out the story of Calming the storm. They make their own sound effects items and special effects, decorate their own boat, make a sail,and then everyone dresses up and climbs in the boat. The teacher narrates and videos the presentation as the children act it out.

Art - The children are focusing on the laying on of hands. They are making their handprints out of plaster of paris and meat trays. The scripture is then written in the wet plaster with a toothpick. Laying Hands on the Sick, of course, was practiced by disciples and Jesus himself, and is still used in various ways in the Church today.  The power of touch/caring, and "being present with the sick", etc.

Bible Skills and Activities - The children are making gift baskets for sick children at our local hospital. Every basket includes a hand made trinket, card, and various little items like stickers and such. The children are then given the opportunity to take them to hospital with the teacher. (She tells them when she will take them during the week and the kids are welcome to meet her at the church to go with for delivery). So far she has had a good response with a handful of kids showing up each time.

Games - They are playing Miracle Mixup where each story is described in seven sentences written on sentence strips. The children are split in to teams and given a set and the team that puts the story in order first wins. They are also playing Miracle Charades.

There you have it. Just a couple ideas to help out everyone who has helped me. Some of the ideas came straight from this website with some minor tweaking.
