This is the last lesson before Paul's First Missionary Journey. It is a chapter that covers not only Peter's miraculous release from prison, but Herod's miserable death. I was greatly helped with background information by reading Bob Waldron's Go Tell The Good News.
I highly recommend it.
My lesson plan:
Time at Stations: Spend some time in stations
Acts cards -- Introduce Acts 11 and 12
Today's lesson: Herod persecutes the church, Peter is miraculously released from prison and Herod dies a miserable death.
Paul's Journey Station: Introduce the 1st journey. Most of the kids have done the activities at this station. I want to make sure they are doing the work in their project folders and get them ready to recite the first 2 journey by memory.
Project Folders -- Read the entire Unknown God passage. Introduce the last verse of Paul's sermon. Do a vocabulary activity from the Unknown God station as a group.
Sing: If there's time let them choose a song to sing.
