The Case of the Distant Cousin is a complete, single lesson planning guide. The material is written using a detective theme and includes supplementary hand-out pages. This Case's goal is to teach students about the concept of the "kinsman-redeemer" and to understand that Jesus is our Kinsman-Redeemer. The lesson focuses on Boaz and the book of Ruth.
The lesson is primarily aimed at 4th-5th graders, but can successfully by used with a group that includes 1st-5th graders.
(The Case of the Distant Cousin is one lesson out of a full series, Casebook of Old Testament Heroes. The lessons are being provided as Stand Alone Lessons to make them available to teachers who are only seeking a single lesson or perhaps just a supplementary approach to a lesson they already have.)
