The Prophets Overview
This is lesson nine in a 13-week series that I used in my class. I wanted one quarter to introduce the Old Testament with a basic timeline of the people and events. The students can learn what happened in the Old Testament and how those events lead to Jesus. These lessons are a combination of the Life Overview Series and other lessons. I will show you what I used to blend several posts into 13 lessons. You can change any to fit your needs.
This lesson teaches about the Prophets. The lesson continues to explain the Big Picture. I discussed the prophets’ divisions and keyed in on Elijah and Elisha with their basic highlights. Keep in mind these lessons are slightly longer with very different application reviews. The visuals for this series have had a major update.
 These are some of the new Anchor Charts that are in the application pack.
This Match-It application is easy but fun to use as a discussion review. The left is the answer base and on the right are the event cards. Print one as an answer sheet. The cards can be cut out and stored in a sandwich bag or envelope. Students will lay the event card on the correct person.
I also used the first puzzle for added review. They are in the Life Overview pack found here.
I also used this Bible Timeline File Folder Game. I made the pictures into stickers (which they love!) and the students added to it each week. Even though we studied Jesus and Acts after this quarter, rather than removing any pictures, I printed those pictures already on the page along with a couple that we wouldn't have as it's own lesson.
Click here if you want to print the one I used with some of the pictures already in place. This includes the completed teacher's visual also. 
The original file has a teacher's visual completed. and a student file folder without any pictures on the timeline. All pictures will need to be cut and glued or made into stickers to use.
