We are starting something NEW. This is an opportunity for all of OUR KIDDOS, that attend Bible Classes here at our congregation, to expand their Bible Knowledge!!!
We are going to encourage all of our KIDDOS to be BIBLE DETECTIVES!!!
We have an area in our classroom hallway that is PERFECT for displaying this BOARD. It is in a central location and very easy for ALL parents, visitors and students to see.
|Detective Notebook and Special Pencil.|
Each KIDDO will be given a Detective Notebook and Pencil. Then they will go to the board and jot down the BIBLE Question for the week.
|Date, Question, Answer and Reference.|
They will have a WEEK to FIND the Answer....On WEDNESDAY following the posting of the NEW Question....we will post a CLUE that will help the KIDDO find the answer. That way if they are STUMPED by the question...they know they will get a bit of help on Wednesday Evening.
We plan on making the Bible Questions RANGE in difficulty. We want our little ones to be able to participate...so, we will have a few "easier to answer questions"...but, since we want to challenge our older Kiddos we will have some questions that will put their Detective Skills to WORK.
The area that we will be posting the questions is simply a laminated piece of yellow cardstock paper. Makes it easy to CHANGE the question. We simple write on it with an Erasable White Board Marker.
We want this to be FUN and Educational. We know that FACTS are very Basic Learning Skills ...but, if we can get the KIDDOS searching the Scriptures for answers then we will be helping to establish a LIFE PRINCIPLE.
The little POCKET on the bottom right of the board will house PAST Questions (we will write the past questions on those little Magnifying Glasses)...that way if a KIDDOS misses a question they have the opportunity to go back and add the question to their Detective Notebook.
We are excited about this activity....ALL the teachers are going to participate as well...We are asking them to submit various Bible Questions to be added to the Board.
NOW, just some technical info. The Blue Board is a Science Project Board...I purchased it at Hobby Lobby with a 40 % off coupon. The Detective Dog, Magnifying Glasses and Border all came from a Classroom Bulletin Board Poster Kit that I purchased at Mardel (school supply store.) The little box on the bottom right corner came from Dollar Tree. The words "Bible Detective" were printed from my computer graphics program. The little Detective Notebooks are from Dollar Tree (4 for $1.00)...I just printed a Label and recovered the front of each Notebook. The pencils came from Dollar Tree. I had the Yellow Cardstock Paper in my supplies.
Hope this might inspire you to challenge the KIDDOS that attend your congregation....Help them LEARN to LOVE EXPLORING their BIBLE!!! The BIBLE holds all the ANSWERS to LIFE!!! Let's get the KIDDOS SEARCHING their BIBLE today!!!!
