Week 4 - The Tower of Babel -
Bible Time FUN Through the Bible
Kids Bible Lesson 4 - The Tower of Babel

Week 4 we taught the girls about the Tower of Babel. The Tower of Babel is a story that isn’t covered much in children’s Bible stories, but we wanted to teach it because it has some very important lessons. I hope you have fun learning this great story!

If you haven’t read the introduction to Bible Time yet, I recommend you read the outline about the Bible lessons for children first.

Children's Bible Lesson about the tower of babel - Key Concepts
The key concepts that we focused on this week are:

  • God wants us to praise him not ourselves.

  • We must build our lives on God’s foundation.

  • God does not want us to think we are better than anyone else.

You can also come up with your own key concepts.

Bible Verse for kids
The Bible verse for this lesson is Genesis 11:4 “Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens”.
This Bible verse should be simple enough for your toddler to memorize after a week of practice.

Bible Story Tips

  • We read “The Tower of Babel” beginning on page 7 of the children's Bible Storybook called Bible-Time Stories and Rhymes.

  • During story, draw attention to the key concepts for this lesson.

  • Ask questions related to the story, for example, “Why did the Babylonians build the Tower of Babel?”

  • We taught our daughters about pride and humility and gave some examples they could relate to.

  • After the Bible story and discussion session, we stand up and do the interactive rhyme found in the Bible storybook

After the story and rhyme, we say a prayer that is related to the Bible story. You can either have your children repeat after you or allow them to come up with their own prayer.

bible Song about the tower of babel 

  • The Bible song for this week is "Praise Him ‘til the Sun Goes Down".

  • We cast the song from YouTube to the television, so our children can see the motions on the big screen.
