Teaching about the Bible

Tonight I taught a group of 3rd-5th graders about the Bible. It was less organized than I'd liked. We had to move quickly because we only had one hour start to finish. I left out a couple of activities I usually do and that threw me off. Crafts

Bible authors. The Bible was written by ordinary people- a doctor, tent maker, tax collector, kings, fishermen, shepherds and a cupbearer.

Yep. They had to hold a spoon in their mouths and move the frogs from one plate to another . This was from the ten plagues.It was easier said than done.

The boys won.

I have Jenga blocks with the books of the Bible on them. The three grades raced against each other putting them in order. Fourth grade won.

My biggest helper.

One thing we taught was everything that's in the Bible using twelve C words. I didn't make it up, but I borrowed it because it's a good way to cover everything in the Bible. Anyone know the twelve C's?

Never heard of the twelve C's. I'll guess one though - Christ. :) You'll have to follow up with the list, as I'm intrigued now.
