ABOUT OBJECT LESSONS:
An object lesson is a short teaching using an everyday object or example. People learn by using their senses. When you teach using a variety and number of senses, the students are better able to learn. Object lessons give you opportunity to engage the student in using two or more of their senses to learn a concept. Jesus frequently used object lessons. Jesus used a fig tree, fish, sheep, money, wheat, a child.
One can find object lesson ideas in books. There are many good ones. But most object lessons are to be found everywhere around us in everyday objects and situations. In fact, looking for object lessons in everyday life, is a good exercise in learning to see God everywhere. The reason we teach is to help children to recognize and know God.
