Unit 8: Shake It Up [Premium]


The world has long enjoyed a good mystery!  Who built Stonehenge?  Is Big Foot real?  Why can I never find my car keys?  During the “Shake It Up” series, kids will be introduced to an all new mystery—what’s in the box?  After shaking the mystery box and listening to the contents rattle, thump, or jingle around, kids will be asked to guess what’s inside.  When the contents are brought to light, they’ll help us discover more about the greatest light to ever shine—the Light of the World.

This Premium Unit includes episodes of the “Journey Today Show” as well as additional Premium materials. The “JTS” videos are available for download one month before the use date listed. See the “Here’s What You Get” graphic below for more details.

*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.
