I find that using Sunday school coloring pages (whether you create them in class, or use Bible printables) even with 9-11 year olds is a way to engage them in the Sunday school lesson and getting them to understand it. The lesson on Sodom and Gomorrah is important in getting them to understand the difference between the sin and the sinner and to see how God wants us to do what is right.
