Welcome to the Workshop Rotation Ideas and Lesson Exchange
Our online community has been sharing Sunday School lessons and ideas since 1997. We are also the official website and organization for Workshop Rotation Model (WoRM), -a creative way to organize and resource Sunday School. You are welcome to cut & paste from our thousands of volunteer created Rotation-style Sunday School lessons, ideas, and articles. Please also post your own great lessons and ideas, and become a Supporting Member.
Rotation Model Sunday School teachers are IDEA GLEANERS and LESSON ADAPTERS. That's why we built this site to share with each other, and have organized our materials as we have. As Rotation Model enthusiasts, we take one story and teach it for several weeks to all our grades "rotating" them through different media-center classrooms we call "workshops." We're looking for good ideas, --and will adapt them to our kids and theological needs.
In addition to our public materials, you'll see lesson sets written by our "Writing Team." This group of volunteers creates peer-reviewed, professionally edited Rotation Model curriculum. It is accessible to all Supporting Members. View the WT Lesson Menu.
"Rotation" in the Workshop Rotation Model, refers to how we move students each week to a new creative workshop (classroom). All workshops focus on the same story for a 4 or 5 week "rotation." Repeating the story through different teaching media creates a sense of anticipation and improves Bible literacy. Teachers stay in specific workshops for the rotation, adjusting the same lesson each week for a new group. This reduces the preparation load and gives them more time to be creative and naturally improve their lesson. Learn more about the Model.

Pictured Above: Example of a typical four week rotation schedule for 3 different grade groups.
You can add more grade groups by adding additional workshops, such as, Computer, Cooking, or Storytelling. Preschool or teens can use the "open" workshop slots. Additional age groups, different workshops and weeks on one story can easily be added. See more schedule examples.

This "Temple School" (Bible Skills & Games Workshop) photo shows a game that most Rotation-nauts are familiar with. Notice the cool full-wall murals too. This photo was in our archive and we don't remember where it was taken. Do you?
