God Made Me Preschool Unit

When I first started teaching preschool Sunday School over 15 years ago, I knew I was going to have to change some of the units that I was provided.

The curriculum our church bought was old-fashioned, the very opposite of hands-on, and many of the Bible stories they chose were just too abstract and developmentally inappropriate for 3, 4, and 5 year olds.

So almost 15 years ago, I wrote my first Bible unit on my own: God Made Me.  Our big idea in this unit is that God created all parts of our body to glorify Him!

We've definitely made some improvements to the unit over the years as I've learned tons more about teaching since then, but it's still one of my favorites!

Exploration Stations

As with all of my Bible units, we spend the first few minutes in exploration stations.  During God Made Me, one of my favorite exploration station is Mr. Potato Head!

They also can build their own silly body puzzles!

Body Parts Activities

I love incorporating hands on activities with our lessons to make what we are learning more memorable for my littles!  Here are a few examples....

When we learned about our mouths, we learned that the words of our mouth should be pleasing to God.  We used the speech bubbles and put them over our mouths and then decided whether or not they were pleasing or mean and sorted our speech bubbles!

When we learned about our feet, we learned that God's Word is a lamp unto our feet and it we need to let the Bible guide where we go.  I printed off several places from our unit and taped them around the room.  I called out each location and they had to decide whether it was a smart choice to go there or whether we should just stay home!

Craft

Most of the Bible units we do have crafts with them or a unit long craft/project.  This was a unit long project.  We build our bodies each week by adding a new body part with each lesson!

Here is the finished project!  This group was younger so we didn't add the labels.  As an extension for older kids, I have the word labels that they can glue to match the pointing lines!

You can find this unit here!
