Plum Creek Lesson Plan Week Three

These are my discussion topics for our Plum Creek class for 2nd-4th graders. We have divided the book up into 6 class periods - so read about 6 chapters before each session and discuss them. Since we draw many of our questions and topics from The Prairie Primer I do not print out the full lesson plan but rather just the topics we discuss. Which is an invaluable resource if you want to teach a class like this. After the discussion time the kids enjoyed fresh biscuts and homemade butter and continued work on their nine-patch quilt pillow

13 - How did their Christmas celebration compare to ours? What do you think of theirs?

15 -Footbridge incident discussion - what happened, lessons about disobedience and slippery slopes. Discuss strategies for not falling into temptation.

James 1:13-15 13When tempted, no one should say, "God is tempting me." For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; 14but each one is tempted when, by his own evil desire, he is dragged away and enticed. 15Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death

Strategies for not falling to temptation that leads to sin

1. Realizing it is wrong and admitting it to yourself
2. Realize that it is sin against God
3. Quickly saying no
4. Reciting scripture to ourselves – Jesus used scripture to rebuke the devil when he was tempted in the bible.
5. Not letting ourselves talk ourselves into it as something different
6. Quickly removing ourselves from the temptation

16 – Discussion of the building process of their home and how we move into our homes. What is different and the same. Discuss giving work a lick and a promise

18 – Wading in the creek - comparison of the creek at different seasons. Discussion of the various animals and creatures they discover. Talk about upcoming attending school
