Teen Girls' Resources
Everybody learns in different ways. Some children may learn better through reading and writing. Others learn better through pictures and images. Some learn better through movement. Some learn better in a group situation while others learn better by themselves. To give all your children opportunity to learn important Bible lessons, I have included different activities to enable them to learn.

Workshop Rotation Model For Sunday Schools
Are you having problems with your Sunday School? Problems like bored kids and teachers, declining attendance, lack of Bible literacy or expensive curriculum (that's half used)? The Workshop Rotation Model was developed to solve these problems.
The Workshop Rotation Model in a nutshell: Major Bible stories and concepts are taught using a variety of workshops, such as drama, art, games, computers, storytelling (depending on your resources and teachers). The same Bible story is taught for four or five weeks in all the workshops, rotating the children to a different workshop every week with the same teacher teaching the same lesson (making minor age adjustments) for the four or five weeks. This gives the children the repetition they need, in a fun way, to really understand and remember what they are taught.
Sunday School Crafts
Some children learn best with hands-on activities. Arts and crafts are wonderful hands-on activities which can be as easy or complex as you feel capable to cope with.

Sunday School Snacks
If you have the facilities, many of these snacks could be prepared by your Sunday School class - another activity to reinforce the Bible story. Even if you don't have kitchen facilities available, the children will still benefit from the extra learning opportunities that eating the Bible story will bring.
In your Sunday School class, having a snack which is associated with the main Bible story is a great way to reinforce the lesson. On this page you'll find many snacks to suit Old Testament Bible stories.
Here you will find a growing collection of Sunday School snack ideas for the New Testament stories and Bible verses.
Sunday School Songs and Music
Many children respond well to music - the tunes, the rhythm, the actions - and music is a great medium for helping children to memorize Bible truths. Whether your Sunday School singing time is a simple affair, accompanied by a guitar or keyboard, or whether you have a fully fledged band for a large group of kids you will want to play your instrument to the best of your ability. Musicademy has some great DVD lessons & online instruction in worship music for church based musicians.
You may choose to introduce children to those traditional songs we learned when we went to Sunday School, to use the contemporary songs we use in our worship services, or to listen to new songs written especially for children.
Decorate the Sunday School Room
In addition to displaying children's work on the walls in your Sunday School classroom, you may wish to purchase some Christian posters.
The Bible tells us to teach our children about the Lord. One of the ways to do this is by having them written "upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates" (Deuteronomy 6:9). Here are some lovely Christian posters to help you do just that.
The following pages were written by my daughter (at the age of 16) to encourage and challenge other teenage girls in their walk with God. I would urge you to check them out and have your teenage girls check them out too.

Another interesting collection of (Sunday school) resources you have here. I already visited a couple of them (concerning my teenage), and I truly liked them. Thank you.

We use The Bible Lab, which is an individualized program that puts all children grades 2 and up into one or two classrooms (or more if your groups are large). They do age-appropriate work in their folders, progressing through the lab one time card at a time. The joy of this is that the lab teachers (usually one to every four children) can alter a timecard if the child's ability is too low or high for that card.
The other tool we use is the Show & Tell Bible, a complete Bible on DVD, which uses 1,500 pictures to cover the Old Testament stories from Creation to Esther.
