Here at Rotation.org, we have (almost) ZERO coloring pages and cottonball crafts. (But creative teaching ideas? That's our thing!)
Seven new workshop-style lesson plans for Rotation and traditional Sunday School use. Activities include: making birdhouses, parable games, a real metal detector (you make), a Kingdom flying game, "Cinnamon Roll Parables," and a great way to do drama with an overhead projector.

♥ "Extra Creative" ...Our multiple intelligence-informed approach to each story helps content and kids stick. 5 minute crafts each week do not.
♥ "Extra Fun" ...Rotation workshops include: video, art, cooking, music, drama, puppets, software, games, music, and more. Rotation.org is a coloring page and popsicle craft-free zone. ;)
♥ Teachers stay put in their workshop during the rotation, adapting the same lesson for a new class each week. This reduces new lesson prep time, and let's them improve their lesson each week. This also let's them teach more engaging lessons.
♥ "Extra Memorable" ...Rotation focuses on the Major Stories of the Bible (not the minors) No "one and done" here! Because we teach 9 to 12 major Bible stories a year -each in four to five week "rotations," regular attenders get depth, and irregular attenders are exposed to major scriptures every time they show up.
Here's a typical four week rotation schedule for 3 different grade groups.
|Week 1||Grades K-1||Grades 2-4||Grades 5-6||Open|
|Week 2||Open||Grades K-1||Grades 2-4||Grades 5-6|
|Week 3||Grades 5-6||Open||Grades K-1||Grades 2-4|
|Week 4||Grades 2-4||Grades 5-6||Open||Grades K-1|
Rotation schedules are super-flexible. Add a week and a workshop to have a five week rotation. Add another grade by filling in the "Open" slots. Add a fifth row to bring in an additional workshop. See more schedule examples.
