    The lesson may be introduced through the activities of ‘Picture-reading’ and ‘Arranging the verses in the proper order’.Show the pictures of Jesus receiving Baptism. The children who are formed into groups observe the picture and find out its meaning. Then make a chart on which the following verses are shown to them:
    - Why do you come to me?
    - They were baptised by John in the river Jordan, confessing their sins.
    - Let it be so now.
    - Jesus came from Galilee to John at the Jordan.
    - Suddenly the heaven was opened.
    - And a voice from heaven said.
    - Jesus came up from the water.

    Hymns associated with Light

    Some hymns in which there are words or ideas that refer to light may be presented to the class. Then you may ask the students to find out more such hymns and to singto the class. Explain their meaning.

    Please refer the suggestions such as let us pray, let us sing, let us read the word of God, a Bible verse to show the way, my decision etc. as given in the first lesson.

    Let us do:

    Ask the students to read a Bible passage and find out names and write them down. Encourage them while checking out what they have written.

    My decision:

    The habit that the students have to develop has been given in the text book as their decision. Motivate them to follow the same and check whether they are observing it.

  1. Find Bible Verse:

    There are many verses about ‘Light’ in the Bible. Let the children be formed into groups and find out some such verses. They may be asked to make a chart of such verses and the chart could be hung in the class.
  2. Note making

    Make a note of John the Baptist based on the Bible. The teacher may help the students to do it.
