Blog Tour- What's in the Bible?

I received the 3rd DVD in this new series by Phil Vischer, creator of Veggie Tales. This series takes kids and parents on a fun filled journey through the Bible! DVD #3
Wandering' in the Desert is all about the books of Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy.

This is way better than Veggie Tales in my opinion. Think Sesame Street meets Sunday School.
Phil Vischer is our leader, with a colorful cast of characters; Buck Denver the Newscaster, Sunday School Teacher with her pointer and flannel board, plus several more. Like Veggie Tales there's singing catchy tunes with each episode.

I was asked by Tyndale if I would use this in our homeschool and I have to say that this is a great tool to introduce many topics to K-3 maybe even 4th grade.

I personally love to plan lessons so I took some time to write out some topics of interest with some available lapbooks, worksheets, and websites.

Part 1- Book of Leviticus
Vocabulary-Holy, ethical laws, ritual laws

Leviticus Lapbook-

10 Commandments Lapbook-

Obedience lapbook Discussion questions-What are the rules at your house about obedience? Why is obedience important? What is the consequence for disobedience? What is God's consequence for us when we disobey?


Mapwork-route from Egypt to Canaan Exodus Route

Family Tree-

Part 2- Books of Numbers and Deuteronomy

Vocab-covenant, Holy God, Pentateuch, Bemidbar

Numbers Lapbook

Deuteronomy Lapbook


Trust, Trust

Complaining, Complaining

~Social Studies/Geography




Energy, Energy, Sun, Sun

Fire Safety, Fire Safety, Fire Safety


As you can see there are lots of topics in each show that are great stepping off points to incorporate in your school day.

Don't forget the great bonus sections!
Robot and Rabbit-lessons here include Gentleness/meekness, respect for people and property, bullying, Eph 4:2
Universe- take off on a study of Christian Scientist using Men of Science, Men of God and learning about DNA

I received this DVD from Tyndale House Publishers in exchange for my honest review.

I was able to see the first 2 because I worked at a Christian Bookstore and we got to preview the new dvd's coming out. We loved them! I am excited to see the 3rd one - especially after your review!
