Battle of Jericho

Armed Guard
Yesterday the students in Grades 3 and 4 acted out the story of the Battle of Jericho from Joshua 6. They dressed up as priests and armed guards and were delighted with their costumes and props. 

Priests with an "ark"

The priests carried an “ark” and marched with the armed guards around the city 6 times to represent the 6 days that the Israelites marched around the city once each day, keeping complete silence as they did so. 

Marching around the city of Jericho
Rev. Bus played a recording of rams' horns being blown (since no once could produce any sound out of the replica ram's horn that had been brought in). 

Pulling down the walls of Jericho

Then the students took a quick “break” at the Israelite camp before marching around the walls 7 times on the  seventh day. 
The city has fallen
On the last lap around the walls the students each picked up a string that was attached to the city’s walls and gave a loud cry before tearing the city down.

The kids had a great time acting out this story in a memorable way that is sure to stick with them for many years to come!

Parents, students and Olivet School teachers love the Olivet School community for its caring, home-like quality, very small class sizes and its rich academic program taught with a foundation in Christian values. If you have been looking for elementary education which combines the strength of top quality teaching with the individual attention and opportunities of a personalized learning community, then you too will love Olivet School.
