Each unit includes a Unit Overview, Grouping Activity, Service Projects, Music Suggestions, Unit-long Project, VBS Suggestions, and Unit Supply List.
Each lesson includes a Lesson Overview, Background for Leaders, Large-group Opening Activity, Five Activity Stations (Storytelling, Craft, Science, Games, and Snack), Closing Prayer, and For the Home take-home guide.
While part of the point of Learning Together is to provide you with a choice of topics or themes, we must start somewhere. See below for more information on what is available and what is in the future.
The [Learning Together: God’s Gift of Water] program was engaging with developmentally appropriate activities for three years olds up to fifth graders. The children were engaged and participated as each learning center was designed on developmentally appropriate practice. I greatly appreciated how the children were engaged along with the Junior Volunteers and Ministry Team. It was an incredible learning experience.Cheryl Henningsgaard, VBS Volunteer (Maple Grove, MN)
