God's Great Covenant Old Testament 1 Student Book
by Claire A Larsen
God’s Great Covenant OT 1 is a delightful, classical Bible program (from Classical Academic Press) that is just plain wonderful! Covering Genesis to Ruth, God's Great Covenant has 32 well-written lessons (to last 32 weeks). The author is a delightful storyteller, making the text so interesting. Each lesson contains a memory page and a fun worksheet (puzzles, etc.) plus a quiz sheet. You can easily do this as a family study (multi-level), but photocopy privileges are not given, so you’d need a student book for each child. It could also be used for individual study in your homeschool. God’s Great Covenant would mesh well with your homeschool studies of ancient history (such as Mystery of History).
What I like: Besides her interesting storytelling, I love how the author gently drills important Bible facts into the kids. Her creative puzzles and games make learning fun and inevitable and are not at all “twaddly”! The kids really are learning from this – and tying in the OT facts with their need for a Savior.
God's Great Covenant Old Testament 1 has a Teacher's Edition available as well. “Do you need the teacher materials?” you might ask. The teacher materials contain the answer key, but you really don’t need it. There are 2 great features included with God’s Great Covenant Teacher’s key, however, that you’ll want to be aware of. First, there are great teacher helps about the history, geography, and culture of the time (helpful if you’re doing this as a family or tying it into your homeschool history studies). Another neat feature is that each lesson is tied in to the Catechism-for-kids questions if you would like to have your kids working on the catechism at the same time.
