A toolbox full of educational strategies, tools, thoughts, and ideas for ministry. My background is Lutheran but these will work for any congregation. Take, use, and/or adapt these ideas and let the Holy Spirit work through them!
Pictures are incredibly important when teaching kids about foreign places. They need them to help connect the dots. I got really excited when I found this resource because it's fantastic for kids. It's a website called Kids Bible Maps and the use of their maps for educational purposes is free. There are maps of journeys, areas, people, and Bible stories. When teaching about a particular story, try to show kids where in the world this actually happened. This is not a make-believe land where stories occurred. Try to connect what happened then to real places. I'm showing maps for the 12 Tribes of Israel and Jesus' Ministry, but there are many, many more. Consider adding them to your Sunday School curriculum!
