To Teach: Begin with a prayer. Remind the children of the tenth plague that Moses warned about in the previous lesson. (Exodus 11:5-6) Read and explain Exodus 12:3-14 to find out what the Israelites were supposed to do to protect their families.

The meal that the Israelites were supposed to eat was called Passover, because the plague would pass over their houses and not come inside. (Unleavened bread is bread that hasn’t risen, like crackers or tortillas.)

Read Exodus 12:21-23. Ask children what they think the blood of the lamb that saved the Israelites from death represented. (The Atonement of Jesus Christ) Say that the Israelites did as they were commanded, and read Exodus 12:29-30 to see what happened to people who did not mark their doors. Moses told the Israelites to remember the Passover by repeating the special Passover meal each year.

After the tenth plague, Pharaoh finally let the Israelites pack their things and leave. Read Exodus 13:21-22.

Finish by coloring the activity sheet. You’re done again!
