PREVIEW A PRESCHOOL, LOWER ELEMENTARY, AND UPPER ELEMENTARY LESSON
Because children need help understanding that the Bible is one story with Jesus as the hero, the Gospel Story Curriculum focuses on Christ as it teaches preschool through sixth-grade children key stories from Matthew to Revelation that highlight God's plan of redemption. This unique 1.5-year long curriculum grows with children by exploring the same Bible stories at three different learning levels, presenting the material in a fresh way each time to help children grow in their understanding of the Bible. Recommended companion materials include: The Gospel Story Bible, Old Story New, Sword Bible Memory Cards, and the companion coloring book, each of which is shown at the bottom of this page.
This special curriculum package allows you to teach the same key gospel stories to preschool through sixth-grade kids at church.
- Preschool Lessons: Three to five-year-old children are introduced to the gospel through the life of Christ and the growth of the early church as they learn key Bible stories in the preschool curriculum. Each lesson equips teachers to bring the gospel to preschoolers with the help of a lesson snapshot, simple object lessons, coloring sheets, and easy-to-follow instructions.
- Lower Elementary Lessons: Designed for first to third-grade children, the lower elementary curriculum takes a more detailed look at the life of Christ, the early church and how each story connects to the gospel. Through age-appropriate object lessons, activities, and coloring sheets teachers can help young elementary school children to understand the gospel presented in the New Testament.
- Upper Elementary Lessons: The developing minds of fourth to sixth-grade children are challenged to understand the gospel as they search the Bible’s text through engaging activities in the upper elementary curriculum. Using the same story content as the lower elementary curriculum, the upper elementary curriculum utilizes different activities and object lessons suitable for nine to twelve-year-old children. Reviewing the now-familiar Bible stories, older children will gain a deeper understanding of the gospel of Jesus Christ as they begin to study Scripture for themselves.
