So, we decided to go with the Angry Words complete lesson. I really appreciated that the entire lesson is downloadable so it can be purchased and used immediately. We had noticed that some of the kids had increaingly been speaking rudely to each other so this lesson seemed opportune. In the lesson, students will discover what James has to say about the damage caused by our angry words and will learn the power of words filled with love.
The kids, of course, are very familiar with the Angry Birds game and we showed the YouTube clip of the full-sized version (see below) which really caught the kids' attention and started them talking.
The complete lesson includes: summary, skit, powerpoint quiz, object lesson, ice breaker, small group discussion, memory card sheet, take home activity and more. We couldn't get out iPad to project onscreen, as suggested in the lesson material, and so used a computer and online version of Angry Birds for the kids to play. (object lesson)
The final activity was to create an Angry Birds card and fill the message with encouraging words to give to someone. We were delighted to have three kids prersent us with their cards, thanking us for making Sunday morning Kidz Church such a great part of their week!
