Moses and Aaron go to talk to Pharaoh. They want to make things better but end up making things worse.

Discussion Questions:

  • When you try to help someone does it always work out for the good?
  • Moses and Aaron tried to help the Israelite people by talking to Pharaoh. How do you think they felt when things got worse because of their effort?
  • Has anyone had a bad opinion of you for something not justified? What did it feel like?

Creative Thinking:

  • Who do you think felt worse after the punishment for the Israelite people; Moses, Aaron, the foremen, or the Israelite people? Why?
  • The foremen were upset at Moses and Aaron. What can you do if you are upset with someone to calm down?

Homeschool Activities:
