Children's Bible lesson ship
for Paul's Missionary journey and shipwreck on Malta
How much fun it was!
These 4th, 5th and 6th graders really enjoyed crashing the ship into the reef and knocking the rocks (crumpled paper Reef) off the table! Each person can have their own ship or share one!
A sailing ship for Paul's Shipwreck
Build the boat then shipwreck it!
Assembly and cutting are pretty easy!
Yes this is the same basic BIBLE BOAT with a few differences!
Choose from 2 versions of the boat: Get the un-colored or pre-colored boat
DO NOT USE PEOPLE.
|Grades: 2through 6th grade|

Acts 27 Paul take a voyage, Paul is shipwrecked
Print enough copies of the boat for each child. Get other supplies
You might want to test your selection of string, wire
or ribbon before class to be sure the ship slides easily.
Instructions for building the sailing ship:
1. If you've chosen the black and white version, color the boat. Put your name on the bottom of the boat. Do not color where it says, "Glue"
if you have chosen the pre-colored version, Put your
name on the bottom of the boat, then you can color the fish or go right
to step 2.
3. Fold both the sails on all the dashed lines.
4. Put glue on the rectangle that says "glue"
5. The 2 sail pieces will become one sail: Overlap the matching end piece from the other sail all the way to the dashed line. This makes the bottom of the sail.
6. Put glue on the 2 triangle flaps that say "Glue"
7. Match the very top of the mast back-to-back from each side. Bring the matching unglued triangle flap over the glue on each side. Do it carefully. (there should be a slight space between the tops of the masts.)
8. Stand up the sail. If the sail leans, pull up the flaps and match them together better. (This is a good reason to use white glue instead of a glue stick)
9. Fold the boat base on all the dashed lines
11. Punch the hole in the bow and the hole in the
12. Glue the 4 flaps on the boat base
13.The rounded "Bow" flaps go under the sides at the front. The squarish flaps go under the sides at the back of the boat.
14. Get the sail. Put a little glue on the bottom of the sail - the part that it stands on. Put the entire sail in the boat! Center it side-to-side for good balance.
15. Get your string - at least 6 feet of it (maximum 9 feet) . Put the string through the bow, run it through the sail, and out the stern: Knot a loop at the end of the string out the stern. (To hang onto and keep from falling back through the ship)
16. Glue 2 pennies in the boat, as shown, which can be said to be cargo, but they balance the ship. Center the pennies from side-to-side.
17 Tape the Stern (Front)end of the string to the end of the table.
18. Crumple used paper into "Rocks" . Pile the reef rocks at the string at the table's end.
19. Pull your boat back to the loop end of the string.
20. Raise the string (The higher you raise it, the faster it will go)
Try to knock the rocks off the table.
