Answers

  • If possible, see that each child has his or her own Bible. Teach that nothing is ever placed on a Bible and that the Bible is to be kept clean. Show how to be careful and how to handle the Bible reverently.
  • Same as 1.
  • Help the Adventurers locate Genesis and Revelation in their Bibles. Encourage them to locate each while a child tells about the author. Play Bible games, use felts, etc. Make this a happy learning experience.
  • Help the children pantomime or dramatize the stories. Encourage them to make the story “come alive.” Keep a box of props, including items such as bath robes, scarves, and a cane to help the children illustrate the Bible characters.
  • Practice finding the texts in the Bible. Read them together and explain each text so the children can understand its meaning.
  • Illustrate or act out Bible stories such as Daniel in the Lion’s Den, Creation, Garden of Eden, etc., or other Bible story of the Adventurer’s choice.
