Yesterday, I showed you how Scripture memory can be enhanced when you tap into auditory, visual, and motion memory. This method can be used with other content besides Bible verses. The clip above is a sample of the "Basic Old Testament Survey" we use with our younger elementary age children at CBC. We call it the basic OT survey, because we add numerous supplementary data sets once the children have mastered these basics. For example, we introduce the seven days of creation and the names of the twelve sons of Jacob. I have attached a print copy of the Basic OT Survey for your reference.
It is important for children to understand this basic historical framework and how the books of the Old Testament fit in this sequence. But our investment in children must go beyond this level of learning. All Scripture is designed to change how we think, speak, and act. So we also show them how to draw valid applications for their personal lives from the Bible's account of God's dealings with Israel.
