BACKGROUND The Story of Moses extends "The Exodus" (The Complete Guide of Godly Play, Volume 2, Lesson 8), and "The Ten Best Ways" (The Complete Guide to Godly Play, Volume 2, Lesson 9) and "The Ark and the Tent" (The Complete Guide to Godly Play, Volume 2, Lesson 10). When you introduce the lessons in this volume, take care to set them in the larger context of the Core Lesson which they are a part.
As you tell the story of Moses’ Life, place objects on the underlay to remind you of each important event. Unroll the underlay slowly, just enough for each object, as if you are unrolling a life. At the end of the wondering, show the children the control card and then carefully place each object back in the tray, saying something about each event like, "here is the Ark that held the Ten Commandments," and so forth. Lastly, model how to roll the underlay back and place it in a tray.
Information on changes: Dr. Cheryl Minor writes, "There is a new basket for Moses and we recommend using one of the People of God for the baby".
