Grade 4 – Building Life Castles: Focus on the life of Christ, work of the Holy Spirit, and the Apostle Paul teach students to build their lives to be strong and beautiful.
Grade 5 – Possessing the Land: A survey of the Old Testament helps students gain insight into how the Old Testament stories fit together into one pattern.

The teacher manual CD-ROM offers suggestions for 3, 4, and 5 day a week lessons, a scripture memory program, and an accompanying music program. The music program teaches students hymns and choruses to complement the lessons and are taken from the books “Sing & Be Happy” and “Treasury of Hymn Histories.” The words only are printed at the back of the student text and on the teacher CD. 35 lessons are presented in PDF format and include vocabulary, objectives, character trait activities, lesson quizzes and small-format student pages with answers.
The student workbook is colorful and offers a variety of activities which may include crosswords, wordsearches, writing, and fill-in-the-blank, among others. The exercises reinforce the key concept being taught in the lesson and incorporate new vocabulary, thinking skills, and life application. This course can be used successfully with the KJV, NKJV, NIV, NASB, and ESV. ~ Donna
