New! Rotation Stations

Bible truths really sink in with new Deep Blue Rotation Stations!

Rotation teaching is popular, and for good reason! As children move through different learning stations, they explore each unit’s theme story from many angles for deeper, more engaged learning. Busy volunteers will love using their specialized skills without a huge time investment—they plan once, then teach the same lesson for several weeks to different age groups. Each unit includes seven stations: Art, Cooking, Science, Storytelling/Drama, Spiritual Practices, Games, and Missions, each with leader helps and a parent resource. Stations may also be purchased individually. For grades K–5. Fast access via downloadable PDF lets you get started at once! Each unit provides material for up to 7 weeks. New units available monthly.
