The Middle School Talk Sheets series intentionally engage middle school students in discussions to help 11 - 14 year olds internalize their faith. All you need to get started teaching is to make a few copies of the handouts and you are on your way to addressing serious issues in the lives of preteens and young teenagers. (Really, it's that easy. Take a look at the excerpt sample above; each lesson is literally two pages.) You can cover the material in as little as 20 minutes or explore it intensively for up to 2 hours. This flexibility makes it a good resource for youth group meetings, Sunday school or Bible study with material that does not go over the heads of younger students while engaging older students. A seven page introduction prepares leaders with helpful tips to lead effective discussions.
More Middle School Talksheets on the New Testament contains 52 Bible stories including Jesus' birth, temptation, ministry, crucifixion, birth of the church, early church growth and more.
