Holy Smokes, Saddleback Kids Ministry has created a treasure trove of free "short" Bible videos for kids!

Below is a menu of links to their 88 short animated Bible videos on YouTube from their "Come and See" series about Jesus. Click the links below or go straight to their channel on YouTube. It's all free. Each clip is an animated retelling of a Bible story for kids. These are good for introducing your Bible study, or for use in Children's Worship. I find their age range flexible.

Here at Rotation.org, each Bible Story Forum has a "Video Workshop" topic with many more Bible video recommendations. I have "embedded" my favorite Saddleback Bible videos in our Lesson Forums, but not all of them (some were uneven or unappealing).

Original Post

In the Rotation Model, we take a classroom and convert it into an "audio visual" space to learn our Bible story by viewing and/or making a video or other type of a-v project. Each week we "rotate" a new class of kids into the "Video" or "A-V" "Workshop" where they are led by the Video Workshop teacher who stays put in the workshop for a period of four or five weeks -- repeating, adjusting, and improving their lesson for each rotating group. Teacher prep goes down, student enthusiasm and anticipation go up!

Some Rotation Sunday Schools create "theater" spaces or call their Video Workshop the "Theater" Workshop. Many Rotation Sunday Schools include "drama" in their Video Workshop lessons -- recording skits, etc.

Here are some photos from our Workshop Photos forum here at Rotation.org
