Involving Bible To Learn During Secular Home School Lessons
The Bible is the most extraordinary book ever written, and it undoubtedly deserves a permanent place in a comprehensive home school program. Here are some tips to help you understand how to incorporate the Bible into your secular home school study:
1. The Bible is a collection of 66 small books divided into the Hebrew Scriptures (Old Testament) and the Greek Scriptures (New Testament). The children would find it fascinating to know about the great facts and events that happened in the 1200 and 165 BC.
2. Another stimulating and challenging activity is to create timelines of the major events recorded in the Bible. This activity can cater to small children as they create a timeline of the events of creation or the events in the life of the faithful man, Moses. The children can also learn the bible history timeline through online sources.
3. Ask the children to create a dramatic play revolving around the details of the person's life. For example, they could re-enact the account of Noah building the ark, warning the people of the flood God was soon to bring about, and depicting the feelings of the family as they waited for it to start raining.
4. The children could also enact the events leading up to the birth of Jesus including the announcement to Mary by the angel, Gabriel, that she would bear God's Son, Jesus' birth in the stable, and the family's escape to Egypt.
As they become more and more familiar with the varied accounts recorded in the Bible they will start to see a vast array of characters and situations that can help them around various activities across many areas of the curriculum. As this occurs you will also envision how you can involve the Bible in your secular homeschool lessons.
