When we began homeschooling (over 20 years ago), we built a model Tabernacle with Popsicle sticks, glue, paint and bits of fabric. It was one of the things that sparked my interest in our the Old Testament portraits of Christ. There are several kit models you can get to make your own Tabernacle.
When completed, it is a 90:1 scaled model of the Tabernacle described in the book of Exodus. The model kit is made of durable plastic with various fabrics for the covering of the holy of holies. Its full size is approximately 12″ wide by 21″ long. Sturdy and durable, this is an excellent resource to use in conjunction with the video. It is also a good tool for teaching, a great project for your S.S. class or family.
The kit includes: 1 high priest, 3 priests, 1 manna jar, Aaron’s budded staff, atonement cover, ten commandments stone, 3 sheep, 8 stands, 1 ark of the covenant, 3 lambs/goats, bread table, laver w/ stand, 2 cows, altar of incense, lampstand of pure gold, 2 breads, altar of burnt offering, tree.
Here is a full-color scale model of the Tabernacle, the Holy of Holies, the Ark of the Covenant, the High Priest, and all of the animals and furnishings. Just cut out the 60 figures. Then fold and tape or glue.
Made from heavy chart paper. Perfect for ages 8 and up.

The book of Exodus is a key to understanding the Bible. Without it, the Bible would lack three early scenes: deliverance, covenant and worship. Exodus provides the events and narrative, the themes and imagery foundational for understanding the story of Israel and of Jesus.
On week 12 in the Heart of Wisdom Lesson Plans we begin the study of Exodus. See the Bible Lessons here.
