Unit 12: Emoji Madness


Happy, sad, scared, or mad—we can show people how we’re feeling with just one little picture.  Emoji’s are also the perfect way to unpack the Book of Psalms!  During “Emoji Madness,” kids will use different emoji’s to tell the Bible story and to discover how God helps us manage our emotions.

*Each GO! unit is part of a 12-month scope and sequence that takes kids on a chronological journey through the Bible. The scope and sequence is designed to follow the Christian calendar so that the Christmas lessons land on Christmas and the Easter lessons land on Easter. The “Recommended Use Dates” indicate where the unit falls within the one-year curriculum calendar. You are able to use the unit at any time of the year that works best for you, but by following the “Recommended Use Dates,” you can easily transition into using the other GO! units to tell the remainder of the Big Bible Story. Click here to view the curriculum calendar.
