This material supports studies given in New Testament and uses the New King James text. It is currently designed to minister to children ages 1st through 6th grades, but could easily be adapted through the Jr. High age.

The curriculum is designed as a verse by verse approach of studying the Bible with children.

* There are 162 studies from the New Testament.
a. These studies are from Matthew through Revelation.

* This curriculum supports the lessons which have been clearly thought out and prepared for during the week by the teacher (using an inductive form of study).

* This curriculum has been designed to use the Bible as the primary text of study. This curriculum will not work without using the Bible alongside it in class.

* Each page is designed to support specific areas during class time.
a. The colouring page and the activity page can be used during the signing-in or signing-out times.
b. The study page can be used as a reinforcement of the story time.
c. A memory verse is included in each lesson.

* Each study is broken into two separate age groups.

a. The 1st and 2nd grade pages are indicated by a 1/2 on the bottom of the study page and the activity page.
b. The 3rd through 6th grade pages are indicated by a 3/6 on the bottom of the study page and the activity page.
c. The colouring page can be used for any age.

* Each week you will need to photocopy the Bible study page you use in class.

The curriculum is not designed to be a graded test.

a. We want to encourage the children, not discourage them.

* It is not designed to lead a teacher through an entire class time, rather to support the teacher in the class for the time that he or she prepared during the week.
