Joseph is Sold by his Brothers into Egypt (CSSA Primary Stage 1 Lesson 12)

We now move onto the exciting lessons of Joseph in our Sunday School studies.  Our first lesson of Joseph covers the early life of Joseph, how his brothers treated him when they saw he was the favorite and how their hatred for Joseph led them into selling him as a slave.

Year-Long Lapbook Project

(Please refer to this post for details on the lapbook project.)

There are two flaps for our lapbook this week.  The first one is a fun flap that has each of the sons of Jacob behind a little window flap (thanks to Karen P. for drawing all the men!)  There is a lot of cutting involved with this first flap and it would be handy to have an exacto / stanley knife!

The second flap has the two dreams that Joseph had about his family.  These dreams aren’t covered in detail in the CSSA lesson book, but I decided to talk about them as part of my lesson.


Click here to download the PDF of the two flaps.  There are instructions for printing and folding the flaps in the PDF document.

Practical Challenge

Thanks to Kate B. for sharing these practical challenges.

Each week we hope to share a practical challenge that can be incorporated into the lesson or as homework.

Craft Ideas

In case you’ve forgotten, two dedicated Sunday School teachers have very useful Pinterest pages that link directly to the CSSA program. Each week we will share direct links to the Pinterest boards so you can quickly and easily get quality ideas if needed.
