Note to the Teacher
This fourth week focuses on the restoration of Job, yet be aware that the restoration is not only material, but spiritual and emotional. The puzzle ice breaker is meant to push the students to find what they cannot see, much like we need to have faith in what we cannot see. When we know where to look, it’s easy to see the answers. When Job discovered where to look, he discovered so much more about God!
The activity this week is a puzzle. It is a hard one, but the answer key is included. The goal of the puzzle is for students to search and search. Don’t give the word bank too soon. You can choose to do the puzzle individually or in groups of two. You’ll need to copy the puzzle and word bank separately.
