Travels of Jesus

Mark your location on a wall map of the world with a wet erase marker (if the map is laminated) or a map pin.

Ask each child to mark their favorite place to visit, longest trip taken, etc.

After each child has placed a mark on the world map, ask if anyone can locate the lands described in the Bible.

Use a marker to draw a square around the lands of the Bible.

Tape up a map of the Bible lands and explain that this map is an enlargement of the square you drew on the world map.  We use a laminated map from Rose Publishing titled "Where Jesus Walked."

Ask a student to mark on the map the following places Jesus visited as the class reads the verses from the Bible.

Bethlehem - Matt. 2:1 Jerusalem - Luke 2:22 Egypt - Matt. 2:14
