2nd Grade Bible Curriculum
Students are introduced to material during the time between the Old Testament and the New Testament and see how important these years were in God’s preparation for the coming Messiah. The Book of James is the featured epistle in Grade 2.
In their study of the New Testament, students trace how Jesus revealed himself as God’s promised Messiah. They study the events of Passion Week, Jesus’ crucifixion, and the resurrection. The curriculum concludes with a study of how Jesus’ followers responded to their salvation in Christ. Students are challenged to respond faithfully, like Peter and Paul, to Christ’s saving work.
The curriculum set includes a comprehensive teacher guide packed with lesson plans, Bible resources, Bible memory, and countless activity ideas plus a workbook for each student with learning activities, hands-on crafts, and much more.
