Perfect for mixed-age classes of elementary kids, lessons are flexible and can be adapted to a variety of classroom formats.
The songs of Christmas provide more than holiday cheer. For hundreds of years, traditional carols have told the true story of Jesus' birth--and they have stories of their own to tell! Use these lessons to share the songs, the stories, and God's plan to send a Rescuer to the world that very first Christmas.
Each lesson weaves together Scripture, biblical context, hands-on experiences, discussion, history, and beloved Christmas songs. There's a little something for everyone! We've kept supplies simple so you can spend time building friendships with kids instead of prepping supplies.
