Red Sea Action Scene22988_000_023
When Pharaoh, the ruler of Egypt, said the children of Israel could leave Egypt, Moses led the people away. Then Pharaoh changed his mind. He and his army chased Moses and his people to the Red Sea.
God parted the water so Moses and his people could get to the other side of the sea. When Pharaoh and his army followed them, God made the water come together again. (See Ex. 14.)
Make the action scene on page 11, and teach your family the story of Moses and the parting of the Red Sea.
Glue pages 10 and 11 onto lightweight cardboard.
Cut out the five pieces. Cut the waves pieces only on the ends and along the waves. Do not cut the solid lines between the dotted lines.
Fold each waves piece on the solid line between the dotted lines, with the water on the outside, and glue the backs of each piece together (see illustration #1).
Fold the waves pieces along the broken lines, and glue the tabs you have just folded under the long sides of the bottom of the Red Sea piece (see illustration #2). Then fold the waves toward each other so they cover the sea bottom.
Fold the people pieces along the dotted lines so they will stand. Now show Moses and his people running away from Pharaoh. When they get to the Red Sea, open the waves for them.
When Pharaoh and his army get to the middle of the Red Sea, fold the waves over them.
