The way this bible study works is that Salvation History is split into periods that are color coded and contain certain figures and events. It is a way of organizing all those people and stories you already know (and some you don't) from hearing them in the readings at Mass and seeing the progression of God's work within His family from Creation up to the present period of The Church. A great tool for adults as well as children.
Now, back to my idea...it is actually kinda brilliant when you know how UN-crafty I am, and that I am a
So, I made a felt version of the timeline:
|with two pieces of felt for each colored time period...|
|and then rolled out in a long line.|
There it is! They have rolled it out several times and placed all the cards in the right place and now we have a way to add events, figures, etc to our time line. We can also put it away quite easily.
What do you think?
NOTE: In the interest of full disclosure I was a fellow student with the timeline's creator, Jeff Cavins, at Franciscan University of Steubenville and had the great pleasure of being his oldest daughter's catechist when she came into the Church. His wife Emily co-authored the kid's version of the timeline.
