Expanded and Simplified
- Students will take a chronological tour through the Bible in four years instead of three. We’ve added more engaging lessons in both the Old and New Testaments. The entire curriculum is now 200 lessons!
- Instead of following the outdated quarter system, we now number our lessons from 1 to 200, so you can easily start or pause anytime without missing anything. And it makes it easier to use for non-Sunday school settings.
- The lessons are packaged in 20 Units of 10, with the tenth lesson being a review.
- ABC is now available in six age groups: Pre-K–1, Grades 2–3, Grades 4–5, Middle School, High School, and Adult.
- ABC 2nd Edition uses the popular English Standard Version of the Bible. The ESV is an essentially literal translation of the Scriptures that is easier for children to understand.
- Based on customer feedback, we’ve simplified the younger-grade lessons to make them more age-appropriate without compromising the depth of teaching that ABC has become known for.
More Resources to Help You Teach!
- We’ve added optional games, activities, and crafts in nearly every lesson!
- A coloring sheet is provided for every lesson in Pre-K–1 and Grades 2 to 5.
- Pre-K–1 and Grades 2–3 students will enjoy the new Justin & Jessie series. Each week these illustrated stories will help students understand how they can apply the lesson to their own lives.
- PowerPoint presentations with the Scriptures, Lesson Theme Posters, Class Notes, and illustrations are included in each lesson for Grade 2 to Adult.
- Many lessons are enhanced with an optional, age-appropriate video clip from Answers in Genesis resources.
- All printable resources are now conveniently available as PDF downloads.
Memory Verse Songs
- We’ve teamed up with Seeds Family Worship to produce two original Memory Verse songs for each unit! Every Teacher Kit (Grades 2 to Middle School) includes digital downloads of an MP3, lyrics video, and a split-screen hand-motions/lyrics video. CDs of the songs are available for purchase to give to students and families.
- Pre-K–1 will learn new Memory Verse songs and lesson songs with original music written for their age level.
