My children love to draw and color. When I heard about (ad) The Picture Smart Bible, I was very intrigued on how this Bible study incorporated drawing and visual learning. They graciously sent me a copy to review and giveaway!
What is The Picture Smart Bible?
The Picture Smart Bible is an overview Bible study geared for 4th grade on up. It uses a master drawing sheet with symbols, items to trace, and captions to write in order to help children (and adults) remember the important points in each book of the Bible.
You do not need to be an artist to use this curriculum! 🙂 The Master Drawings (pictured above) or the Student Sheets (not pictured) contain all the information you need. If you can trace and color–you can do this Bible study! I am currently doing this Bible study with my 3 oldest children, 14 yrs., 13yrs., and 11 yrs. old. Younger children can also participate by using the Master sheet as their coloring sheet. (I hear they are currently working on a K-3 edition.)
I challenged my older children to read through the Bible this year. The Picture Smart Bible is fitting in perfectly because it gives an overview of each book of the Bible. What I am planning (we are currently working on Genesis) is doing the TPSB lesson before reading that book of the Bible. That way we can discuss what they’ll be reading and they’ll have some background information that will help them read through the Bible. So far all 3 of my children have enjoyed this format. I’ll be sharing more of my thoughts after we have had a chance to really use this program.
You can get a sneak peek at a lesson by hopping on over to their Facebook page. While you are there, be sure to “like” it! 🙂 They have also started a Pinterest board with many Bible activities, lessons, and craft ideas.
There are several different purchase options:
- printed version (you can purchase OT and NT separately if needed)
- cd of the curriculum
- download of the curriculum
See their site for more information.
Disclosure: I was given a set to review and offer as a giveaway. All opinions are mine.
