Sunday School Lessons for Kids – David and Goliath

These Sunday school lessonsfor kids about the story of David and Goliath are great to teach children about heroes. These ideas have worked particularly well with the 6-8 year olds in my class.Sunday School Lessons for Kids

Bible Story:

Tell the story of David and Goliath to the children in the class.  A picture book version isn’t necessary but a simplified version of the story will put it into the understand level of this age group.  If you have a children’s bible that you use with your class, then this ought to be appropriate.

Recreate the story with the children in your class.
Discussion 1:

What is a hero?  What words describe a hero?  Who are the children’s heroes?  Are they all superheroes?  If they could be a NEW superhero – who would they be and who would they save?

Supply each child with a sheet of paper and something to write with.  Have them write the name of their hero at the top of the page and the numbers 1 to 10 down the side.  Now the children should write 10 reasons (1 against each number) why this person is their hero.

Discussion 2:

Ask if they can think of another superhero – one that they can’t see, who didn’t wear a fancy costume, or fought other people but who saves them just the same.  Explain to them how Jesus was really the first superhero.
