Bible Story

For some reason each year the story of Zacchaeus {the Wee Little Man} is always a favorite among my students.  I don’t know if it’s the fun song we sing, or that we get to act out being a tiny little tax collector, but they LUV it!  {By the way, we’ve been studying money to correspond with this story since he was a tax collector.  See the connection?}

Anyways, here’s a super cute project we made.  Simply trace the students forearm and hand onto brown construction paper and cut it out, or allow the children to depending on their cutting skills.  Glue it on to blue background paper, add Jesus and green construction paper grass.  Sponge paint the tree.  Glue Zacchaeus into the tree.  Happy Bible story telling!
