For this interactive classroom activity, the Parable of the Sower is divided into 4 jigsaw pieces. Two translations are included: ERV (Beginning) and NiRV (Intermediate). Students are grouped into 4 tables and are each given a puzzle piece with a section of the text written on it. They are to learn that section of the parable and then are regrouped into 4 “expert” groups. Within the new groups, each member explains what happened in their section of the text.
Instructions and Reading Quest (draw or rewrite section in own words) are also included.
