So many wonderful and important things happened in the desert; we know what it is like. We can’t get the whole desert into the classroom, so we use the Desert Box- clear Lucite box designed to hold enough sand to be impressive to the child and to provide an authentic and dramatic focal point for the Old Testament story sessions.
The Desert Box is at its best when telling the following stories, The Great Family, The Exodus, The Ten Best Ways, The Ark and the Tent, The Exile and Return, The Prophets, you will find these Lessons in the Complete Guide to Godly Play Volume 2 Revised and Expanded
Box w/plexiglass-27' L X 21' W x 4' H is constructed of plywood, with pine trim, and plexiglass sides. It comes with a plywood lid with pine trim, has two easy-to-grasp handles and rollers to help move it around the classroom. Some assembly is required, comes with instructions.
