This is QUARTER ONE of Sleuth for the Truth, a year-long curriculum plan for Sunday school or home school which includes engaging midweek reinforcement lessons that provide access to activities. Home school lessons, images, and centres can be tweaked with your own schedule. THESE ARE QUARTER 1 ACTIVITY CENTERS ONLY. Use as needed! You may find the Quarter 1 Lesson Plans HERE!
BUT, FIRST THINGS FIRST (and the most important thing of all): Yes, this is the Old Testament, but ! 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!
13 Midweek Plans: () 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 27 activity centres is provided through 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 centers can be left in your classroom all year (like the Bible Arc, Geo-Safari, 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!). ;-)
Quarter 1 includes a teach-by-number curriculum to follow in your classroom, these centres, classroom activities, and a massive biblical timeline. Centres are from these lessons and some are PURPOSEFULLY repeated and listed for review but are under the corresponding lesson below:
