This lesson is aimed at a top set year 8 class with differentiated tasks to stretch and challenge each student.
The lesson includes the feeding of the 5000 and Jesus walking on water.
To know the definition of a miracle.
To explain two different miracles.
To evaluate theist and atheist responses to miracles.
Lesson plan details student involvement. At one point in the lesson, students are asked to perform a miracle using 1 slice of bread to feed the whole class. We then evaluate atheist and theist responses.
Overview of purpose and significance of miracles in Luke - I have used the EDEXCEL text book and various other books so there is plenty of information from scholars. It should be a useful starting point for revising this A/S topic - hope it helps. Please leave a comment.
