Guiding Question: How can students learn medical vocabulary?
Materials: None needed
Procedure: Review the story of naaman from the scriptures above. Tell the students that after Naaman washed, his skin was clear of leprosy. Explain that sometimes God may ask us to do things that don’t make sense to us, but He still asks us to obey him. God knows things we cannot know or understand which is why the Bible says some things about God are mysteries. We don’t always have to understand God to obey God but we need to believe God knows what is best for us and obey Him.
Explain to the students that it is important to know vocabulary related to illness and symptoms so we can understand when we are sick. Teach the students illness words and symptom words. Have the students pretend to be medical personnel and someone is ill. They must describe symptoms and the “medical” person makes a “diagnosis”.
Additional Questions: How can students learn how medical tools are used with sickness?
Supplemental Activity: Bring in play medical tools. Teach the students vocabulary related to illnesses and what medical tools are used to help with some sickness.
