For Bible Study we are using “Picture This!” from www.bibledraw.com and the children have enjoyed drawing their overview pages of each book of the Bible we have done so far.
Because this is a visual reference or overview, we often stop to ~
* study a story, event or characters in more detail (even dramatize ~ do puppet shows – finger puppets are quick and fun!)
* do some hands-on activity eg.: build models, do lapbook or minibooks
* memory verse practice
* sing songs or hymns
* write in our notebook pages
* place our timeline pictures (from Sonlight) on the timeline
I made a Tabernacle cross minibook shaped like a cross; with the outer court and Holy Place and Most Holy Place’s articles. There is place to write how Jesus fulfilled the Tabernacle’s purposes on the minibooks.
To go with this theme I made a Priest’s garment paper figure with all his priestly garments separately to dress him as described in Exodus.
I pray and trust the Holy Spirit to show us where to stop and listen to Him and obey what He is saying to us. He alone can make all of this word Light, Life and Truth!
