GrowinginHisGlory: Bible Road Trip, a Bible Study for Kids You'll Love!

Recently, I’ve mentioned in passing about this amazing Bible curriculum I’m using with my young girls, ages 5, 3, & 2.

In the past, we have taken our daily Bible study time in several different directions:

  1. We’ve read through this children’s Bible and this one.
  2. We have used and loved ABC Jesus Loves Me, a free Bible and preschool curriculum for ages 2-5.
  3. We have done character studies from here and also some created by myself and some friends.
  4. We have read devotional books like Leading Little Ones to God, the Miller Series, and Big Thoughts for Little People.
  5. I have written short devotionals we’ve discussed.

All of these studies have been a blessing in their own unique ways. Through them, our children have been introduced to the great men & women of the Bible, learned how God’s children are to behave and treat others, been introduced to new hymns, and learned scriptures to help them in areas of sin.

However, as I was gearing up for our new homeschool year, the Lord laid on my heart the need for something more for our oldest daughter as she is now asking questions and reading voraciously. She knows the Bible stories, and I really want to dig deeper into God’s Word with her. One of our homeschool goals this year is to learn about how the Bible is organized and made up. I want my girls to know the books of the Bible, the divisions, and how we got God’s Word.

However, with a preschooler and a toddler in tow, I also knew I needed a curriculum basic enough to use with them so that they could participate with big sister while also learning Bible stories and memorizing short verses.

So, when my friend Tauna at Proverbial Homemaker posted a while back on Facebook about this great three-year Bible curriculum for children spanning the entire Bible, I knew I had to check it out.

What is Bible Road Trip?

Bible Road Trip is an exciting journey which places you and your children in the driver’s seat! Aimed at youth grades PreK-12, Bible Road Trip will allow your family to survey the Bible cover-to-cover in 3 years ~ with breaks for summer. There are notebooking pages available for the Lower Grammar (Grades 1-3), Upper Grammar (Grades 4-6) and Dialectic (Grades 7-9) levels. Students at the Rhetoric level (Grades 10-12) will keep their own notebooks and be busy sharing their information with others!

Bible Road Trip covers the entire Bible, book-by-book, “studying each book for the background history, major themes, key verses, God’s messages, and the Bible’s role in the overall revelation of God’s story.”

Each Year consists of a parent/teacher guide plus 32 weeks of curriculum schedules for all ages.

  • Year 1 focuses on The Books of Law & History.
  • Year 2: The Books of Poetry & Prophecy
  • Year 3: The New Testament (not yet released)

What I Love About Bible Road Trip

1. Curriculum for multiple ages. Lessons are based on 5 levels of study (preschool-Kindergarten; Lower Grammar- 1st-3rd grade; Upper Grammar- 4th-6th grade; Dialectic- 7th-9th grade; Rhetoric- 10th-12th grade). You can overlap levels, creating your own schedule. For example, we combine the Preschool & Lower Grammar levels for my 1st grader, preschooler, & toddler.

2. The depth of information. This curriculum is not for wimps. My 3-year-old has learned that the first 5 books of the OT make up the Pentateuch and my 5-year-old now knows what a “covenant” is thanks to Bible Road Trip. Needless to say, I’m learning too. I don’t expect mastery of the material — there’s a lot there, especially for the littles, but the exposure is so important.

3. It’s non-denominational.Bible Road Trip does not address specific theological or doctrinal arguments. (There are some discussions over the manner in which we approach Scripture in the upper grades.)” I love that the curriculum is Bible-centered and not driven by a church’s catechism or doctrine, giving you the opportunity to share your own beliefs with your children in the context of the scriptures.

4. The Notebooking Journal pages. Beautifully illustrated with famous artwork & illustrations, these notebook pages provide space for your child to jot down what she’s learning throughout the journey. There are notebooking pages for Lower Grammar (1st-3rd grades), Upper Grammar (4th-6th grades), and Dialectic (7th-9th grades). Compiling a notebook is a great way to keep track of what you’ve studied, and these notebooking pages offer plenty of space to write and draw.

5. The variety of material. In addition to notebooking journal pages, Bible Road Trip also offers suggestions for scripture memorization, background readings and additional scripture reading, craft projects, & prayer.

6. The cost: It’s FREE!! If you don’t mind the hassle of finding and printing out the lessons & notebooking pages each week, you can do so at absolutely no cost.

However, if you’d prefer to have all of the material in PDF format, you can now purchase and download the curriculum schedules for Years 1 & 2 for $20 per Year. You can also buy the notebook journals for Years 1 & 2 for $20 per Year. I HIGHLY recommend!

  2. This looks really interesting. Definitely going to look this over. Thank you for sharing!

  3. Bummer we don’t have internet at home so this would work for us. Does it come in a book format? If not do you have any other bible Cirrculium you recommend that is in book for May for my 4 and 6 year old.

    • Sorry about bad typing there. THis wouldnt work for us. Does it come in book format?

    • Well, Bible Road Trip is a download that you can print out. You don’t have to have internet to use it except initially when you print everything out. There are also note booking journals for older kids. I like how it goes through the entire Bible and provides everything you need for discussion including activities.

      We’ve done several different things for Bible studies with littles. Currently, we’re going through Clay Clarkson’s “Our 24 Family Ways,” which is a family devotional for all ages. There’s also a coloring book that my girls like.

      We have also read through Catherine Vos’ “The Child’s Story Bible” which is EXCELLENT. My girls love these stories and I would let them color or draw while I read them. It is a lovely book.

      These aren’t curricula per se but at this age I don’t think anything formal is necessary. We just want to instill a love of God’s Word and introduce them to who God is and what He has done for us so we will live out our life’s purpose: to love Him with all our heart and mind and strength. I hope that helps a little. Blessings to you!

  4. Wouldn’t work for us. And does it come in book format?
