Short Youtube Clip from

Craft for Bulletin Board

These fish were made using small paper plates with no coating.
Students scribble with magic markers all over the paper.
Then spray the plates with water to blend the colors.
When they are dry cut of edging leaving a tail only.
Cut out the mouth in a triangle shape.
Use the remaining plate trimmings to make fins.
Add goggly eyes and glue on fins.


Re-enacting the Bible Story

We Re-enacted the story with a boat made from Legos,
a net purchased from Hobby Lobby,  fishing hats, and soft stuffed fish.
Students took turns being fishermen and fish swimming around the boat.
When the Jesus puppet came and told them to throw their net to the other side, 
the students with the fish dropped them into the net.  

We actually made it into a movie using the Fisher Men Song.

Due to copyrights and protection of children's identity, you will have to use a little imagination.

Here are some samples of songs that I like to use for this lesson.
