Procedure: Review the meaning of the Book of Revelation. Explain that Revelation is a series of visions that God gave the apostle John about Heaven and Hell. Explain that while some of Revelation can be confusing and tough to understand, we should take from Revelation that Christians get to go to Heaven and those who reject God will spend eternity in Hell.
Introduce the activity. Give students a piece of paper and have them divide in half. Label one side Hell and the other side Heaven. Have them draw the various descriptions found throughout the Bible of both places including whom God will place in each. Interested students may want to illustrate some of the other images in Revelation and discuss what they may mean. The important thing is for them to understand the ultimate importance of becoming a Christian.
Additional Questions: How can students understand what actions lead to Heaven or Hell?
Supplemental Activity: Have the students look through the Bible and create a chart of actions that lead to going to Heaven and lead to going to Hell.
