A few weeks ago I asked the ABCJLM family how I could best serve their families. Several of the families who have been with ABCJLM for a while, asked for curriculum for their older children. They have loved using ABCJLM with their preschoolers but they want more for their elementary-age children.
As I prayed about it, the Armor of God was one of the first topics that came to mine. So I began brainstorming and a new Unit Study was created!
What is a Unit Study?
Unit studies are smaller curriculum that typically focus on one topic at a time. They use many subject areas to teach the same concept (science, reading, math, etc.).
In the case of the brand new Armor of God Unit Study, there are nine lessons focusing on the Armor of God.
What is Included?
Included in the 47 page, digital download is the Scope and Sequence which provides a layout of what and how to teach, and the activities that reinforce the lesson.
Nine Lesson Plans include background information for the adult, a lesson, a memory verse, a song, and activities to do with child. A snack ideas is also included to further learning.
The craft ideas are simple to do and require basic household items and kitchen ingredients. All printables are included in the download.
Who Can Use this Unit Study?
Written for children ages 5-10, both boys and girls can learn about the God-given armor and how to use it when confronted with the lies and temptation of the enemy. Throughout the study, the child will create a boy or girl soldier.
This $10.00 study could be used for family devos 0r as a summer curriculum. Churches could use it for a Sunday School or Wednesday night curriculum for their early elementary aged kiddos. License prices begin at $12.00.
How Does this Compare to the ABCJLM Curriculum?
You will find the format very similar to what you have seen in the 1-5 Year Curricula. The difference is that it is only nine weeks of lessons and the digital download includes all the worksheets. (Very similar to the holiday Activity Workbooks.)
Thoughts from Others
I just finished ordering and downloading my copy of the brand new ABC Jesus Loves Me Armor of God Unit Study. As is true to her form, Heidi has created yet another fantastic unit that is designed to plant the truth of God’s Word deep in the minds and hearts of our precious children. It’s fun, engaging, creative, practical, and easy to implement into your daily or weekly routine. I encourage you to purchase this unit study as well. I believe it has been created “for such a time as this” while evil is on the rise in the world we live in. Teaching our children how to put on the full armor of God will equip our children to stand strong daily. I love it. Let’s raise some little warriors! –Holly
The Bible is clear that an invisible battle is taking place around us. Instead of being afraid, we need to teach children to stand guard. Instead of coming up with fleshly solutions, we can put on the full armor of God. The ABCJLM Armor of God Unit Study was created to empower you to teach preschool and elementary-aged children the weapons God has provided His children and how to use them.
Be sure to share this with your Sunday School leaders and friends with elementary-aged children! Together, let’s teach our children to stand.
