Other CD-ROMS that can be used to teach Psalm 23 and about David:

Cal & Marty's Scripture Memory Game CD Have the kids type the Psalm into the game editor and Cal & Marty  will scramble the words. Kids put back in order to beat the clock. Add comments and quiz questions to each verse.

Pathways Through Jerusalem: King David's Tour is outstanding. The "Introduction" section would make an excellent & entertaining introduction to who King David. the first part of the "Second Temple" section is also very worth seeing. Select "yes" when he asks if you "want to see why I could not build the Temple." It will tell you the story about his beginnings as a shepherd and the story of Bathsheba.

Note: Life of David from the Kids Interactive Bible series doesn't contain anything on Psalm 23. It does cover his early life very well, however, including Goliath and Anointing by Samuel.

Kid Pix:

Have the kids pick another animal and rewrite the Psalm using similar meanings but different images. For example, instead of writing from the point of view of a sheep, write from the point of view of a "Sloth" or Elephant" or "school student" Example: "The Lord is my teacher, I shall not lack wisdom..."  "The Lord is the leader of my Herd, I don't have to worry about lions."
