This Sunday School photo comes from member Barb Little. who was using the Writing Team's Peter Sinks, Jesus Saves! "Boat and Butter" lesson plan.
Barb's photo illustrates one of the many things we love about the Rotation Model: It appeals to older kids, including older boys that many churches struggle to keep interested. Most of the "free" Bible lesson plans on the web are for little children. And a lot of published curriculum for older students is boring and sedentary. Rotation.org's new Writing Team lesson sets are written for a broad-age range, but especially to appeal to older kids -because it's a crucial time in their decision-making about church and faith.
In addition to all our free Sunday School lesson forums, Supporting Members can access a special collection of Sunday School lesson plans written by our Writing Team. They are extra awesome, creative, and detailed. See the Writing Team Lesson Menu.

(2) Speeding through a new Bible every week creates biblically illiterate kids and burned-out teachers who can't handle the rate of change and constant preparation.
Our solution: slow down.
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.
