Did you ever find that you really identify with a particular Bible character? How about the kids in your class?
When you read a Bible story, are there ways to help kids identify with the characters in the story?
"How do you think ____ felt? Did you ever feel like that?"
"Did you ever do something like that? Do you know someone who did?" Not just the major characters but the other characters in the stories, too.
I know of someone who makes me think of Esther . . .
I know someone who makes me think of Jonah...
I know someone who makes me think of Noah's mother...
How about you?
