Unit 1: Get Reel


Internet dance trends are all the rage! And now it’s time to
create our own! During “Get Reel,” kids will make up dance
moves and hand motions that go along with each part of
the Bible story. When the story’s finished, they’ll put them
all together and add music to make a “reel” (short video) of
their routine. As the kids move and groove through the early
chapters of Genesis, they’ll also discover the affect sin has
had on God’s perfect creation.

*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.

*** There will be glimpses of God’s salvation plan throughout the year, but there will be four lessons where that plan is communicated clearly and kids will have an opportunity to respond. Those lessons are denoted with *** next to the lesson title.
