Explore Level 1 (Gr 1-3) Teacher Leaflet - Cross Explorations Winter 2018-19
After the Engage opening, kids in Cross Explorations break off into small groups to Explore the Bible story in-depth.
The Explore Teacher Leaflet provides a complete lesson plan for each week that includes a Preparing the Lesson background article for the teacher. This article provides the key point, law and gospel points, the context of the Bible story, and commentary that provides additional insights into God’s Word.
Each lesson has a five-part lesson plan that helps guide discussion and learning:
- Start the lesson with an opening activity to set the stage for Bible learning
- Read the Bible story
- Look at Bible illustrations or act out Bible stories
- Find the story in the Bible and answer questions
- Share the Bible story through life-application activities
One copy of the Level 1 Explore Teacher Leaflet is included in each quarter's Cross Explorations Sunday School Starter Kit. Additional copies may be purchased as needed.
