Teach toddlers & preschoolers the full story of the Bible.

These lessons will help you walk preschoolers through the BIG Story of the Bible and see the overarching theme of God in relationship with His people. Through familiar and sometimes less-familiar stories, preschoolers will see Jesus as the Promised One who can to save His people from sin and death.

In unit 1, lessons 1-6, preschoolers will be introduced to the God of the Bible, see that the Bible is one big story about God rescuing His people, and will see God’s people from the beginning in the garden, through Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob & Joseph, basically the book of Genesis. These lessons correspond with the first 6 lessons in the elementary curriculum of the same name. In the outline below, you’ll see the stories and Bible truths covered in the lessons.

Curriculum Overview:

  1. One Big Story – the Bible is God’s Word and it’s one big story about God rescuing His people
  2. In the Beginning – Creation - God Made the World
  3. Sin Came In – Fall/ First Sin - Sin is Disobeying God
  4. Destruction and Promise – Noah and the Ark – God Promised to Rescue His People
  5. God’s Big Promise – God Calls Abraham and Establishes a Covenant – God Made a Big Promise
  6. God’s Big Family – the Patriarchs from Abraham to Joseph – God is Always in Control

 

 

In unit 2, lessons 7-13, preschoolers will see the faithfulness of God despite the unfaithfulness of God’s people. This unit completes the Old Testament and moves through the story of the Bible from God introducing Himself to Moses at the burning bush, through the years in the Promised land, the exile, and the wait for the Messiah, all the way to the announcement to Mary that she would have a son.   

These lessons correspond with lessons 7-13 of the same name in the elementary curriculum of the same name. In the outline below, you’ll see the stories and Bible truths covered in the lessons.

Lesson Outline:

  1. I AM Who I AM – God Introduces Himself to Moses & the Plagues
  2. A Sign and a Rescue – the First Passover & the Exodus
  3. God’s Good Place – Israel Conquering Jericho & Entering the Promised Land
  4. Life in God’s Place – David Defeating Goliath
  5. Sent Away – the Exile / Elijah and the Prophets of Baal
  6. Waiting with Hope – Old Testament Prophecies
  7. 400 Silent Years – Israel Waiting for the Messiah & the Angel Visiting Mary Announcing Jesus’ Arrival

 

Units 3 & 4 will be available spring 2023

Lessons are designed to be taught in a 1-hour setting for preschool age children (ages 2-5). Each lesson includes an introductory activity, worship through singing (with links to suggested songs), multiple ideas for telling the Bible story, an opportunity to see where this story fits into the storyline of the Bible, application activities, weekly memory verses with activities, and even workbook pages to go along with the lesson. These workbook pages can be printed as needed and completed in class and sent home, or you can have the books printed and bound and at the end of the year, kids will be able to take home the full story of the Bible.

Full stories are included in these lesson plans; however, you know best what/ how much your group of kids can handle. With younger preschoolers, you may want to read this story while showing pictures from your favorite story Bible. With older preschoolers, you may choose to tell the story in your own words with an open Bible on your lap to reinforce that this story comes from the Bible and is therefore true.  Many of the stories include simple motions you can use while telling the story. Simple motions help children to engage their minds as their eyes and ears are being asked to focus.

 

Supplies Needed:

Lessons require simple resources you likely already have in your class (dolls, kitchen toys, blocks, etc.) and give ideas for how to use them to teach kids about the Bible. If you don’t have these items in your class, you would be helped to have a set of blocks, a couple of dolls and small container of toy food/ cooking utensils. Other commonly used supplies are playdough, paper, crayons and glue sticks. Occasionally lessons will suggest that you bring in a simple prop that you likely have at home.
