Level 2 Lesson Plan: Heroes of the Bible: Daniel
Friday, June 28, 2013

Note to parent or teacher: This lesson plan on Daniel highlights the following lesson objectives: “Learn of more of the lives of the great men and women of the Bible; learn of historical characters who displayed great courage in the face of fear or seemingly insurmountable odds.” (Christian Life and Faith: Witnessing and Missionary Training: Great Men and Women of God-2a; Character Building: Values and Virtues: Courage-2c)

ReadHeroes of the Bible: Daniel.”

Have an impromptu discussion on what your children know of Daniel’s life.

Listen to “Brave Daniel” from Great Adventures 2.

Read the story of Daniel, either from the Bible (see below for the more well-known stories from his life) or from an adapted retelling of the story (a children’s Bible, etc.). You could read a chapter a day for the next week, or otherwise space them out according to what works best for you.

Listen to “A Bible Adventure: The Humbled King” (runtime: 12:59).

Discuss how Nebuchadnezzar's greatest sin was pride, but we don't have to be the king of a world empire and live in extravagant luxury to be proud. Look up the following verses and discuss them: James 1:17; 1 Corinthians 4:7; John 3:27; Proverbs 16:18; James 4:6.

Read, paraphrase, and explain “Daniel” from Meditation Moments. (Or, if your children are older, an audio recording is also available.)
