I’ve been so excited to be working through the new timelines from Grapevine Studies! They’ve recently put out Old Testament and New Testament timeline studies and I think it’s going to be so beneficial as we move forward through their other studies.
Once we get the timeline studies done it will be much easier to see when events occurred as we do other individual studies they offer.
The kids are really loving this study, and I always draw my version up on the board as we go so they have some reference to help them out. Thankfully the Teacher’s Manual shows me what to draw or I’d be lost!
Here is one of Strawberry Shortcake’s New Testament pages.
The Grapevine studies also come with a full color version which we decided to put up on our wall for an easy guide. As we go through the study I add that page to our timeline. I am running out of wall space but I think it’s worth it!
(The above timeline images are in the Old Testament Wall Timeline Teacher PDF)
They have Old Testament and New Testament Wall Timelines, plus teacher notes for instruction. Grapevine also offers blank timelines (both in color and black/white) if you want to color in your own figures as well.
If you’re planning to do one of these levels you’ll want to purchase the Old Testament Timeline Student Book and Teacher Book. The Student Book includes blank timeline pages for students to fill in and the Teacher’s Book includes instruction for each Biblical event. It’s a great way to see the chronology of the Bible all in one spot.
The timelines move fairly quickly as well, they’re really just overview information for each event in history, then as you add in your other more specific studies such as Joseph, Ruth, Esther, Birth of Jesus, etc. You can see exactly where they fit in history.
