Woman at the Well: Running on Thirsty Bible Game
We don't have a lot on the story of the Samaritan Woman at the Well mostly because it's not one of the "major" stories of the Bible that Rotation fans teach. That said, we've been collecting good ideas and invite you to add your own! John 4 4 Now he had to go through Samaria. It was about noon. Have children crumple newspapers and stuff into a large paper grocery bag. When it is full, put another bag on top of it to make a block. Stack the blocks in a circle and make the well. Place a large bowl of ice cold water in the well and lower a cup down by a rope to get water from the well.
Give each child a sip of the water. Posted by P. Kelly on February 18, Our 1st and 2nd graders wrote invitations to Sunday School as they discussed the woman witnessing to others about her encounter with Jesus. You could do this as a writing workshop or as a journaling option. For art we created a fountain that looked like a well and with the coninuous flow fountain, it demonstrated "Living Water".
We also created the scene using Barbie dolls in a display case, and made on video some comercials for Living Water. The whole thing was put together as a display in the church narthex for all to see what the children had been studying and to pique interest as well. The adults were all very enthusiastic about it we got a lot of feedback, several people told us they would like to see the fountain a permanent fixture! For our art workshop we gathered several pictures of Christ and the woman of Samaria from the Internet.
We were able to find about 20 different drawings, paintings, or sculptures depicting the scene. We printed them all and laid them out for the workshop. THe children were led in a discussion of the similarities and differences in the pictures. What three elements do we find in every one?
Jesus, woman, well How does the woman look? Then using a variety of materials each child created their own "Christ and the woman of Samaria" scene. We used watercolors, pastels, torn tissue mosaics and "stained glass" windows, and pencil drawings. The children really enjoyed seeing "real" art and comparing the pictures.
Posted by nmoff on October 14, This web site has links to a lot of the great art for the Woman at the Well Most of the art you can print out on a color printer and get fine results. We just did a lesson on the Woman at the Well focusing on Jesus as living water. If you are thirsty drink water. If you are looking for God you need Jesus the living water. The kids made lava lamps from empty 20 ounce soda bottles. We filled them a third full of cooking oil, added food coloring and glitter and then filled them almot to the top with water.
On the side we wrote Jesus is living water. The kids loved the craft. Thanks for the help I got on this topic on these posts. I know they are old but it really helped me and I wanted to add in case anyone down the road is working on this subject too. For cooking, we are making "living water" and discussing what that means. We are mixing gingerale with blue koolaid and adding vanilla ice cream.
I've given options for any kind of blue liquid recipe blueberry smoothie; pour sprite over blue kookaid ice cubes and watch it turn blue. Vision Video to see a description I really like these, Cherub is an adorable little angel with a lovely laugh. The 25 min video is broken into 8 segments.
Plus, the rest of the video segments promote telling others about Jesus. Gather the students. Welcome the students and introduce yourself. Have the students wear their nametags so that you can call them.
The nametags are located in the tote box and the shepherds are responsible for handing them out. John Review the memory verse for this rotation using one of the tips in your folder. After covering the background information, continue on with the part of the story assigned to this rotation. If this is the 3rd or 4th week of the rotation, some of the students have heard the story 2 or 3 times already. They should be able to retell the story in their own words.
You may want to choose a different way to present the story in the last 2 weeks of the rotation. Consider using one of the story telling ideas found in your curriculum folder. Many students have difficulty getting started and some of the younger children have difficulty writing. You could also write one or two partial sentences on the board for the students to copy down and complete.
It is the video's moving words which give me an idea for how to turn the song into an activity --and it goes something like this: After listening and discussing and looking at the lyrics, give each student several slips of paper to write on and turn into a long paper chain the things keeping us from finding what we long for, as the song says, things holding us back, sins, problems, pride.
And what is our goal that these chains are holding us back from? Across the room is a whiteboard where we can write what we hope for, want out of life, know is what we need most, believe God can give us. Note that many good words things we need are seen in the video. After writing those things on the whiteboard, return to the paper chain and discuss how Jesus 'breaks' that chain.
It's awesome and has the chain-imagery. You could imagine it too being a song for the Samaritan Woman. What was holding her back? What is the "work" that Jesus has done? What are people searching for? What do we want most out of life? What is it that we need to leave behind? What does it mean to "come as you are"?

Each student can pick up to 3 colors of sand and gently sprinkle the sand over the glue. The sand colors can be separate or overlapped.

Reflection Questions: Why were the disciples surprised that Jesus was talking to the women in this story verse 27?
At that time, Jews were not friendly with Samaritans. Why do you think the woman was surprised that Jesus was talking to her? The word of God. Closing: End with a prayer. Casting Crowns has a good song about "The Well" Leave it all behind. Discussion questions abound. Leave it all behind, Leave it all behind, Leave it all behind, Leave it all behind,. I have what you need, But you keep on searchin', I've done all the work, But you keep on workin', When you're runnin' on empty, And you can't find the remedy, Just come to the well.
You can spend your whole life, Chasin' what's missing, But that empty inside, It just ain't gonna listen. When nothing can satisfy, And the world leaves you high and dry, Just come to the well. And all who thirst will thirst no more, And all who search will find what their souls long for, The world will try, but it can never fill, So leave it all behind, and come to the well. So bring me your heart No matter how broken, Just come as you are, When your last prayer is spoken, Just rest in my arms a while, You'll feel the change my child, When you come to the well.
Yeah Leave it all behind. The world will try, but it can never fill, leave it all behind. And now that you're full, Of love beyond measure, Your joy's gonna flow, Like a stream in the desert, Soon all the world will see that living water is found in me, 'Cause you came to the well.
Leave it all behind, leave it all behind Leave it all behind, leave it all behind. Excerpted here under the Fair Use clause for non-profit teaching and commentary purposes.
