Designed around a notebooking concept, instructions provide opportunities for students to think and ponder the questions given, as well as consider their own thoughts in the "Make a Note of It" section. Each lesson features an introduction to the main topic, learning objectives, a short story, thought-provoking questions, important vocabulary words, two Bible memory verses, interesting inte rdisciplinary topics, godly character traits that students should demonstrate as a response, prayer, discussion questions, and a story adapted from Jesus' parables. Four lessons also end with the "House of Truth" memory aid visual model that builds upon lessons learned in the previous books; it can be drawn or built with building blocks.
Customize the schedule to your students' level; most chapters can be covered in two weeks (for the entire course taking 4-8 months), and this study may be used independently or with a parent. A suggested lesson plan is included for guidance if desired. Books do not have to be used in order, though it is recommended. Ages 6-14; Reading Level Grades 5-6. NIV, NLT, NCV, KJV, NKJV, ESV, NASB, HCSB, CEV, and Amplified Bible Scripture verses are used. 293 pages, hardcover, indexed.
