It's not hard to get middle schoolers to talk...unless you're talking about something other than the latest band, movie, or the opposite sex! If you want to get them thinking and talking about Jesus---beyond the flannelgraph, Sunday school Jesus---you have everything you need right here. The latest addition to the best-selling TalkSheets series, Middle School TalkSheets: Life of Christ gives you easy-to-use discussion starters and the tools to lead students into meaningful dialogue about Jesus. The one-page, reproducible handouts offer provocative questions in a compelling design that keep in mind the unique challenges of middle school discussions. These TalkSheets present every aspect of Jesus' life in a way that young teens can connect with as they learn to apply the lessons to their own lives. TalkSheets makes the Bible relevant and engaging for students, while offering helpful hints and optional activities to help your youth ministry team effectively facilitate great conversations---without a lot of prep work.
