Children as young as 3 years old work with a globe and the raised surface map of Israel. They learn about the small land of Israel where Jesus was born. Then they learn about three important cities: the town of Nazareth where Mary was asked to be the mother of God (represented by a fire shaped flag), Bethlehem where Jesus was born (represented by a comet shaped flag), and Jerusalem, where Jesus died and rose again outside the walls (represented by a cross). Once children learn to identify these 3 cities, they will be shown a more detailed map and learn to identify the regions and waterways of Israel. These geography presentations help the children discover the reality of Jesus’ incarnation.
