A number of websites offer free Sunday school lessons, including Disciplr.com, Rotation.org, ShareFaith.com and Ministry-To-Children.com. Disciplr.com offers the Discipleship Junior curriculum for free. This curriculum provides Sunday school lessons for toddlers through children in the fifth and sixth grades. Each lesson includes teacher preparation materials, explication of the chosen Bible passage and suggestions for age-appropriate learning activities based on the lesson. For example, young children build a clay boat after hearing the story of Noah's ark.
Rotation.org is an online community of Christian educators and pastors that offers free Sunday school teaching materials. The site bases its lessons on the Workshop Rotation Model. In this style of teaching, students study the same Bible story for several weeks in a row; however, each week they participate in new workshops based on that story. Workshops in the rotation include cooking classes, arts and crafts and games. This approach to Sunday school deepens children's understanding of the Bible.
A section of ShareFaith.com is devoted to Sunday school planning, resources and curricula. The site offers free trials of ShareFaith Kids, an online multimedia Sunday school program. There are sample lessons on David and Goliath, Lazarus, and the Ascension and Pentecost. Ministry-to-Children.com provides links to free lesson plans for children. It offers object-based and lectionary-based Sunday school lessons. In addition to these resources, Ministry-to-Children.com provides downloadable coloring pages and flashcards, as well as suggestions for learning games.
KidsSundaySchool.com offers Sunday school lessons for children that center around particular themes in the Old and New Testaments. One lesson focuses on the Creation story; another centers on the miracles of Jesus. Users can access craft and game ideas on the site, as well as examples of object talks, skits, songs and stories. KidsSundaySchool.com organizes its curricula by year, and links prior schedules on its homepage.
