SAY: Today we are going to create a Graffiti Wall. Our artwork will remind us of the story of David and Goliath. As I read the story, you can draw a picture on the Graffiti Wall. Draw something that stood out to you in the story. It could be something like how tall Goliath was, or what David had in his basket. You can start drawing once I finish reading each Bible passage.
