The Disobedience of Adam and Eve

Last week, the children learned about the Beginning of Creation.  They saw that God created everything man needed first then He created Adam and Eve.  For this week's lesson, the children will learn what happened to Adam and Eve. 

Disobedience of Adam and Eve

(You can use the story sequencing card of the story of Adam and Eve from DLTK as a visual aid. Then, read Genesis 2:4 - 3:24)

Tell the story of how God created Adam - Gen 2:7  

You may use clay to illustrate how it was like for God to form man from the dust of the ground then breathe on it.

Tell what God told Adam after He put him in the garden - Gen 2:15-17

God told Adam to take care of Eden and he can eat from any tree in the garden except the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

Tell what God did when He saw that Adam was alone - Gen. 2:18-22

God saw that it was not good for Adam to be alone, so God created Eve.

Tell about the day when the serpent talked to Eve. What did they talk about? - Gen 3:1-5

There was a serpent in the garden that talked to Eve. The serpent tricked Eve into eating the fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Eve also gave Adam the fruit which he ate.

Tell what happened to Adam and Eve when they disobeyed God. - Gen. 3:7-24

What Adam and Eve did was wrong. They covered themselves with fig leaves because they realized that they were naked. When God came, they hid. Because they disobeyed God, God punished them. Eve will have more pain in childbearing, while Adam had work hard to grow food from the soil.  They were also asked to leave the garden of Eden.

Ask the children what lesson they learned about the story of Adam and Eve.  Emphasize that we should always obey God and that sin has its consequences.  Ask also the children how they can practice what they have learned from the story.

It would be good also to let the children retell the story. Let them use the story sequencing cards.

MEMORY VERSE: Psalm 119:10
I will seek You with all my heart; do not let me stray from your commands.

God Made Me.  Let the children draw a portrait of themselves and let them write below their picture "God Made Me" or "I am Special".

Role Playing.  For older children, they can also do a role playing of the story.

Snake paper chain.  For some handicraft, the kids can make this snake paper chain and use it as a reminder that they should listen to God and not to the serpent.

KIDS SONG:  Sing this song to the tune of  A Hunting We Will Go
God made the bird
God made the bird
God made everything
God made the bird.
Then substitute "the bird" for names of other animals or the names of the kids.
