Moses Leads the Children of Israel

Moses grew up to be a great prophet. He led the children of Israel out of slavery in Egypt. To find out what Moses did when the children of Israel were trapped between the Red Sea and the Egyptian Army, ask someone to read Exodus 14:13–16, 21–22 [Ex. 14:13–16, 21–22] aloud. To demonstrate this great event, remove this page from the magazine and glue it to heavy paper. Fold Lines A and B to meet at Line C. Then open the page to see Moses leading his people to safety on dry ground.

This Tree Belongs to Me

This tree
Belongs to me.
I can read in it,
String beads in it.
I can sing in it,
Swing in it.
I can climb in it,
Rhyme in it.
I can hide in it,
Ride in it,
I can eat in it,
Do great feats in it.
I can creep in it,
Sleep in it—
For, you see,
This tree
Belongs to me.
