Unit 2: What’s Next [Premium]


Ladies and gentlemen, squids of all ages—it’s time for a silly new gameshow called “What’s Next,” hosted by none other than Ricky the Raccoon! During this gameshow, you’ll pause throughout the Bible story to ask each team what they think is going to happen next. In the end, only one team will stand victorious! As for the other team, it’s time to spin…THE WHEEL OF MISFORTUNE! Throughout the fun and games, kids will learn about the character and nature of God through stories of the patriarchs of the Bible.

*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.
