You may not like it that students forgot your talk on temptation, but remembered your mouse-trap object lesson......?ut the fact remains that nothing brings a lesson to life more vividly and concretely—or wakes up a drowsy Sunday school class faster—than a good object lesson. In Everyday Object Lessons for Youth Groups the authors (who are youth workers and teachers of youth workers) pool their most effective 45 object lessons into a collection that's perfect for both junior and senior high youth groups. Here are no-prep and low-prep object lessons for devotionals, Sunday school lessons, talks at camps and retreats—even for sermons. Inside you'll find object lessons about—Beauty (using a kiwi fruit) Regret (a mirror) Divine protection (sun block) Anger (Alka-Seltzer and 7-Up) The power of words (Popsicle sticks) Priorities (manure) Confession (hydrogen peroxide) Temptation (a mousetrap) The person of Jesus (keys) Conformity (Play-Doh) Endurance (bricks)—and 34 more quirky and attention-getting object lessons. Use them to open your lessons...?o dramatize your talks...?o close your Bible studies with a demonstration. However you use them, you have Bible references and provocative discussion-starting questions with each object lesson to help you take it in any direction you want. And with both a topical and a scriptural index, you can find the perfect object lesson fast.
