About the Rotation Model and Organization of Our Site

The lessons and ideas in our Bible Story Lesson Forums are organized by creative teaching methods such as art, games, video, drama, and cooking. We call these medium-specific classrooms "workshops." Kids rotate each week to a new workshop, hence the name, "Workshop Rotation Model" (or "the WoRM" for short). All workshops teach the same Bible story for several weeks in a row. If you're using a traditional "new story each week" model, browse all the workshops for your story and pick one that fits your needs.

Read how the Rotation Model can help with attendance fluctuations and irregular attendance.
