The story of the contest between Ahab and Elijah is a dramatic example of God's power in the face of blatant evil. 950 prophets of Baal and Asherah were no match for Elijah plus God. Elijah showed extraordinary faith and was not disappointed.
Elisha was Elijah's successor, taking over from him when Elijah disappeared into the sky in chariot 'drawn by horses of fire'. The bible teaches that he went to Heaven without dying. Another very dramatic story to share with children.
