Free 3 Year Bible Curriculum

This is an awesome find!!

Danika Cooley at Thinking Kids is offering a 3 year Bible curriculum for grades 1-12. It is divided by grade level groups to make it easier for you. Bible Road Trip will allow your family to survey the Bible cover-to-cover in 3 years ~ with breaks for summer!

Notebooking about the Word ~ Bible Road Trip

Here is what is included:

  • A 3 Year Bible Survey Syllabus ~ A schedule of Bible study (book by book), Scripture reading and memorization, and additional activities such as: notebooking, crafts, and great videos and books
  • Each year consists of a 32 week, customizable schedule. ~ This schedule can be expanded to allow for more time for study in any given area.
  • 4 separate levels of study (Lower Grammar ~ Grades 1-3, Upper Grammar ~ Grades 4-6, Dialectic ~ Grades 7-9, Rhetoric ~ Grades 10-12)
  • Each level is designed to coordinate with the other grade levels, while allowing growing students to delve deeper and even begin to share what they are learning in new and exciting ways (consistent with the theories underlying Classical Education).
  • Bible Road Trip does not address specific theological or doctrinal arguments. (There are some discussions over the manner in which we approach Scripture in the upper grades.)  For example, though I believe in the literal Creation account, and I was careful to choose materials that did not discount that very valid view of the Bible, you will not find anything here that specifically addresses Creationism.  There are many wonderful ministries that you can consult for additional materials.  Rather, weeks 3-5 of Year One of Bible Road Trip will acquaint students with the book of Genesis – its authorship, themes, storyline, and timing in actual history.
