Peace School - We'll learn about the Exodus to Sinai, the third section in the Bible Storyline.
While Joseph led his family to survival in Egypt, Moses leads the Hebrews out of slavery in Egypt. Moses wrestles with his privileged status, calling by a burning bush, calling to confront Pharaoh, and how to lead slaves in the midst of the wilderness.
Reflect - To review and discover more to this section, you can find the stories in your own Bible (5th Graders), Spark Story Bible (4th Graders), Shine On Story Bible (3rd Graders):
