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 first- through third-grade children key stories from Genesis to Malachi that highlight God's plan of redemption. This unique 1.5-year long curriculum series grows with children by exploring the same Bible stories at three different learning levels--preschool, lower, and upper elementary--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, Long Story Short, Sword Bible Memory Cards, and the companion coloring book, each of which is shown at the bottom of this page.
Designed for first- to third-grade children, the lower elementary curriculum takes a more detailed look at how each of these Bible stories connects to the gospel. Through age-appropriate object lessons, activities, and coloring sheets, teachers can help young elementary school children to see Christ in the Old Testament.
