Farm Words

Scripture: 1 Kings 21

Learning Objectives:

  • Students will learn it is wrong to covet things belonging to another person.
  • Students will learn God expects us to be godly in the ways we treat other people – even in business dealings.
  • Students will learn there may be earthly consequences for disobeying God.
  • Students will learn vocabulary related to farming.

Guiding Question: How can students learn to use farming vocabulary appropriately?

Materials: Toy farm animals, food product equipment

Procedure: Review the story of Naboth’s Vineyard from the scriptures above. Remind the students that Ahab cheated Naboth out of his vineyard and that Ahab treated Naboth in an ungodly way. Explain that many people today try to treat people in order to get material items from there or money from them. Sometimes they can be so sneaky that people do not even notice they are being tricked. This is not how God wants people to treat others and can lead to negative earthly consequences. God wants us to treat others how we would want to be treated and putting others first shows the godly trait of selflessness.

Take the students to a farm or vineyard and teach them words used in farming or bring in children’s toy farm animals, food products equipment, etc. Have students design their own dream farm using the words they have learned.

Additional Questions: How can students apply knowledge of farm vocabulary?

Supplemental Activity: Have the students transform that classroom into a “farm”. Have families or another class come to visit, with the students explaining different parts of the farm.
