This worksheet about Moses looks at the big story so far, it looks at how God equipps us through life for where he wants us to be and what he wants us to do. As a child this is a really comforting thought -ie we are not expected to topple goliaths because we are the same age as David was. It also discusses the fears moese had when God revealed why his life had taken the routes it had, it’s a sheet that needs discussion and so get your kids to work in small groups. The light fun at the end is a spot the sheep game.
To complete the worksheet you will need something to write with and to turn your thinking caps on!

Moses life is a great saga and this moment is the moment where the past present and future meet. Very few people experience a burning bush or Damascus road moment. However clear the message Moses isn’t a willing participant and some of these games take inspiration from that, others are more concrete in their link to the passage.
Let it not burn – The aim of this game is to build flames to engulf the shrub. In preparation you’ll need to cut enough flames for the challenge to be completed out of paper, tissue or crepe paper would also work well. If you are blessed to have a hardy real plant use it, if not then a pile of twigs or a photograph of a bush would work. Have your group, or groups race against the clock to cover the shrub with flames. For older groups make it a relay race.

| This Moses and the burning bush craft is simple enough for younger kids if pre-cut and open ended enough to allow older children to experiment with colour placing techniques. The burning bush did not burn and yet it was engulfed in fire, it is the central symbol of this story. I’ve gone to great lengths to make sure this craft needs no craft knife or windows cut into the paper, it works perfectly well on printer paper or thin card and is available to print in colour, partial colour (Moses left blank) or outline.

Essential Teachers notes:
The story of Moses encounter with the burning bush is iconic and as such can suffer from re-tellers errors. Before teaching this story it’s really important to go back and read exodus 3 and 4. This is a story where the board is set and everything prepared, it’s a story of ignition in more ways than one, it’s a story of God’s timing not our own, and a story of a master plan greater than the Hebrews, or even Moses, imagined.
