Battles of the Bible: Joshua and Gideon

The challenge for the students was to see who could break down the block wall without touching it physically! Many chose to try and blow the wall down while others stomped around the outside. No one was successful in bringing down their block wall. This led into our unit on the two Israeli leaders who led their people to face their enemies. With the battle that Joshua fought the challenge they faced was how to breach the city’s walled defences. God had the answer they needed. The students then went on to create a battle strategy they thought would help their army breach the high walled city with the least amount of casualties.
