Biblical Basics - Part 5 is the fifth segment of a highly engaging, easy-to-teach, broad sweeping unit about the Bible. This lesson may take 2 or more classes to get through (depending on how long your classes are, how much prior knowledge your students possess, etc.). 

If you’re looking for the FULL unit (introduction, parts 1-5, and conclusion) please click HERE. Otherwise, please see below for the details about this particular portion of the Biblical Basics unit.

Biblical Basics - Part 5 focuses on giving students a big picture summary of the entire Bible. This is done through activating student prior knowledge via a friendly dose of team competition, which is then followed up with guided student notes and a stellar presentation full of cool and informative antidotes (provided in a 10-page, meticulously detailed lesson plan).
