Teaching the Bible to Children
This PowerPoint presentation looks at how their developmental characteristics affect the way you teach the Bible to them.
 
If you do not have PowerPoint installed on your computer, you can download a free PowerPoint Viewer from Microsoft's site. You can encourage teachers to download it as well if you wish to have teachers view it individually rather than in a group.
