This activity has been designed to take elementary, middle or high school students through an overview of the Hebrew Bible (or the Old Testament from the Christian perspective). The activity allows students to turn a blank piece of paper into an information-packed resource that uses titles, captions, key terms and creative images. Depending on how long you want to give students to create each box, this activity could take anywhere from 45-90 minutes.
Students are encouraged (required) to use the following 10 key terms while they follow along to create 8 comic strip boxes:
4 Ten Commandments
5 Arc of the Covenant
6 Promised Land
The 8 comic strip box titles to guide this activity are:
1 A Promise to Father Abraham
2 Line of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob
3 Joseph is sold and rises to royal status
4 Twelve Brothers become Twelve tribes
5 Moses Delivers the Hebrews from Slavery
6 Joshua crosses the Jordan to a promised land
7 A Mixed History of Kings, prophets & captivity
8 Destruction, Dispersion and 2000 years of trials
