Teacher, Practice the Lesson This Week
Each lesson is designed for one hour, however activities can be adjusted to add or delete fifteen minutes from each session.
The lesson is designed for children grades four through six; however, there are some options for groups that have younger children.
If your group is large, form small groups of four to seven for the Introduce the Lesson and Apply the Lesson sections. Each group should have an adult leader.
There are two suggestions in the Apply the Lesson section. You may choose to have all the children do one activity or you may have more than one group and use both activities.
The "Teacher, Practice the Lesson This Week" section give teachers a suggested way to carry out the theme of the lesson through the week.
The printed verses and Bible passages are form the Holman Christian Standard Bible translation, however, you may use the translation of your choice. All activities are translation neutral and can be used with the translation of your choice.
