Description

Are you looking for a new Sunday school curriculum?

Sleuth for the Truth is an exciting, flexible, and fun way to teach your children about Jesus. It’s designed to be used in both Sunday schools or homeschool settings. Sleuth for the Truth can also be used as a supplement with any other Bible study program! We think it’s perfect for kids ages 6-12 (grades 1-6), but we know that some of our customers use it with younger kids too!

PERFECT FOR 3RD through 8TH GRADE!

BIBLE SCHOOL LESSONS WITH ACTIVITY CENTERS

This is the incredibly flexible first instalment ("quarter one") of Sleuth for the Truth,

which is a year-long (or way more...!) curriculum for Sunday school or home school.

BEFORE YOU READ ON:

1. If you want a great (hands-on) taste of what you're getting, you can GO HERE FOR TWO FREE LESSONS (it's at the top!) and get an idea of the layout of the lesson plans!

2. If you are looking for the BUNDLE of Sunday Quarter 1 lessons WITHOUT the activity centres, you'll want to CHECK THIS OUT RIGHT HERE. If you are looking for the BUNDLE of all Sunday Quarter 1 AND 2 lessons WITH the activity centres (and freebies), you'll want to CHECK THIS OUT RIGHT HERE.

3. Our quarters are so flexible they can be spread out and used over a year or more without repetition. The use of the lessons depends on your needs.

4. THESE ARE CHRONOLOGICAL so they are not in the order they are in a traditional Bible ... but close! (please see below)

THE MOST IMPORTANT THING: Yes, this is the Old Testament, but you will always be able to find where a prophecy of Jesus can be found from each book in every lesson! That is the title and purpose of this curriculum. Jesus is all over the Old Testament, it just takes a "SLEUTH" like you and your students to find Him!

ONE QUARTER'S WORTH OF MATERIAL (or more if you need!)

OF 12 CHRONOLOGICAL LESSONS

1. 13 Sunday Lessons: a 100-page packet that includes done-for-you and word-for-word (or not! - that's up to you). It's an amazing guided resource that you can tweak as you go. Many have found it very simple to spread these lessons out over an entire year OR quarters as you can use what you need from each lesson (depending on the age)!

  • FINDING THE GOLDEN THREAD (introductory lesson)
  • GENESIS: The Drama Begins
  • EXODUS: God Comes Down
  • LEVITICUS: Making a Holy People
  • NUMBERS: Obey or Pay?
  • DEUTERONOMY: Cake or Death?
  • JOB: Why Me, Lord?
  • JOSHUA: Canaan or Bust!
  • JUDGES: On Again, Off Again ...
  • RUTH: A Love Story
  • I SAMUEL: Take Me to Your Leader
  • II SAMUEL: The Best of Times ...
  • THE QUARTERBACK I (a fun wrap-up lesson)

2. 13 Midweek Plans: (200 pages+) How to use, find and create activity centres from The Scripture Scout's teacher's resource store. Resources listed are low cost, free, or direct you to a trusted resource. This bundle of 28 activity centres is provided with The Scripture Scout's Sleuth for the Truth curriculum (hence the centre number on the top of the pages after the title page) but can be used with your own method of teaching any of this biblical history.

Each centre (and corresponding lesson) is to help you see the "Golden Thread" that runs through the Bible tying all of the wonderful stories together. And most importantly, to see how God has had a PLAN for us from the beginning of time! Some centres can be left in your classroom all year (like the Bible Arc, a suggested Geo-Safari resource, or Jesus' Family Tree). Any of these centres be used on its own as you search for that wonderful golden thread (hint: it's Jesus!). ;-)

(IMPORTANT: you will have access to all the centres for this packet of lessons, but some links may take you back to the TeachersPayTeachers sales page from The Sunday School Store -- to avoid buying twice, MAKE SURE YOU DON'T ALREADY HAVE THAT ACTIVITY!)

Quarter 1 includes a teach-by-number curriculum to follow in your classroom, these centres, classroom activities, and a biblical timeline with mini-images (see more on the massive version of the timeline that is located at milestonesofbiblehistory.com).

The centres are from these lessons and some are PURPOSEFULLY repeated and listed for review but are under the corresponding lesson below:

4. LIFE LESSONS: We DO have to be careful as Christian adult teachers that we don't speed kids from one verse to the next without focusing on application or, well ... life maintenance! That could be detrimental to a child's spiritual maturity. But here is some good news! The Scripture Scout's Sleuth for the Truth utilises a MEMORY PROGRAM THAT WORKS. It uses short, simple, age-appropriate Bible passages and makes memorisation so exciting and fun that children will WANT to do it!! Enjoy this download that details the spiritual and physical rewards of PUTTING HIS WORD IN THEIR HEARTS!

PERFECT FOR 3RD through 8TH GRADE!
