This week we’re looking at the second half of the book of Numbers. The prayer focus for the Grammar levels covers the United Arab Emirates. For Dialectic and Rhetoric students (middle school and high school), the prayer focus is Kyrgystan, Tajikistan and Afghanistan.

Each of the five developmental stages has a one to four page syllabus each week. Because the Bible Road Trip curriculum is designed to be used over the course of a five-day week, your family may have the time and desire to do every activity. On the other hand, you may wish to pick and choose your activities. For example, you may also find that your child loves to notebook, but doesn’t care for crafting. Bible Road Trip was designed to give your family the flexibility to fit the curriculum to your family’s needs.
Explore Further ~ Crafting Through the Word ~ Dialectic
The third page of the syllabus covers the “Explore Further” section. Here, you’ll find “Learning More about the Word” and “Crafting Through the Word”.
“Crafting Through the Word” allows children to really internalize what they’ve been learning. When we create works of art to represent what we’ve been learning, it employs our brains in a whole new method of study. “Crafting Through the Word” changes as children age, so we’ll cover the different age levels over the next few weeks. This week, we’ll talk about grades 7-9.
For the Dialectic levels (grades 7-9), the crafting section of Bible Road Trip is designed to help your middle school students associate what they are learning about the Bible to history, and to archaeology. It will also help them understand the chronology of the biblical narrative. Dialectic students will create and manage a biblical timeline for the three years of their Bible Road Trip. As they read, they will add dates to their timeline.
By the third year of their dialectic level in Bible Road Trip, dialectic students will have a good idea of how the Bible is situated in history. They’ll understand how the various kings relate to each other, and where the prophets were located in history. Additionally, they will have some knowledge of what was occurring in the rest of the world.
As students do their mini-research projects (see “Learning More about the Word ~ Dialectic”), they can add dates they locate in their research as well. This allows children to truly engage in and own their Bible studies.
“Crafting Through the Word” for dialectic level students will help build a foundation of understanding for a life time of Bible study. Students will gain a solid understanding of the biblical narrative in history. It will become more 3-dimensional for them as they add layers of knowledge to their studies.
