Mystery Detective

Maybe you could start each session off with the Mystery Detective (someone dressed up like a detective-drench coat, dark glasses, magnifying glass, bible, etc.) that would do a short skit with the teacher or a dialogue each week to perk the kids interest and pull events together. Make it humorous. Each week he could be searching for something. Sometimes he could be completely off track because he's looking for something only to find out he mixed up the meaning and finds the answer is something he didn't expect.

Easter - Investigating the Trial of Jesus Theme

by ZBCC posted in 2014

Summary: We created a themed rotation studying Jesus’ trial. Children were recruited as investigators and collected evidence that Jesus was innocent of his charge of Blaspheme. Each workshop helped students gather evidence and learn more about the story of Jesus’ trial.

I've noted this here as it may interest people wanting to do a mystery theme for Easter. It is found in our Easter Forum @ https://www.rotation.org/topic...sus-theme-lesson-set.  Some of these same ideas may be adaptable to other bible stories where you wish to do a mystery theme.
