Discover Hands-On Bible Curriculum

Teach as Jesus Taught.

Jesus used common objects (coins, fish, plants) to teach spiritual truths. The Hands-On Bible curriculum follows this example, calling the objects 'gizmos', to help children understand important Bible lessons through experiential learning. Published by Group, this curriculum uses their R.E.A.L. approach to learning: Relational, Experienctial, Applicable and Learner Based.
