  • Construction paper
  • Tape
  • Tissue paper
  • Pail
  • Two strips of fabric
  • Soil
  • Tray
  • Small house
  • Two 1-inch (3 cm) PVC pipe elbows
  • 3/4 inch (2 cm) PVC pipe cut to three inches long



  1. Before class, prepare four experiment stations (see below).
  2. Explain that Elijah was confronted with four different elements and that God was in one of them.
  3. Let the children explore the stations to see what element God was in.


First station (wind)

  1. Cut strips of construction paper.
  2. Glue the strips of fabric on a table with tape.
  3. When the children arrive in front of this station, tell them to blow on the strips to see the effect of the wind they create by blowing.
  4. Explain to them that there was a great wind, but that God was not in the wind.


Second station (fire)

  1. Place orange, red and yellow tissue paper in a seal to create the effect of a fire.
  2. Explain that there was a fire, but that God was not in the fire.


Third station (earthquake)

  1. Take two strips of fabric (representing two different plates) and cover them with soil.
  2. Place houses on the soil (representing a city). Make sure you have some houses on the current fault line.
  3. Ask a child to stand on one side in front of a strip.
  4. Ask another child to stand on the other side in front of the opposite strip.
  5. t your signal, ask them to pull one side of the tape towards them. When they pull, children clearly see the effects of an earthquake.
  6. Explain that there was an earthquake, but tell the children that God was not in the earthquake.


Fourth station (murmur)

  1. Assemble two PVC elbows at each end of a small PVC pipe to make a phone. Make sure, when you buy the parts, that they fit in.
  2. You can paint them if you want.
  3. Tell the kids to talk softly in the phones.
  4. Explain to them that there was a whisper as the children hear with the phone and that God was in the whisper.
