Review and Giveaway: Grapevine Studies Timelines

 I first heard of Grapevine Studies when I was given the opportunity to review their Old Testament Overview Level 5, which I found to be a straight-forward, chronological study.  You can read the full review here.  One of the things I mentioned in the review is the fact it started with the student writing on a timeline what they already new about the Old Testament, then concluded the study with the same exercise. I'm a big picture person.  I need to see how it all fits together first, before I can get to the details. Of course, timelines are a perfect visual for the big picture. 

Grapevine Studies has just released several new timeline products that coordinate with their studies, or one of your own.  Both student and teacher editions are available for two new timeline books, the Old Testament Timeline and the New Testament Timeline.  Printed and ebook options are both available.

The Teacher Timeline Books include a narrative, either to be used as a guide or read directly, along with instruction on colors, symbols, and stick figures to be drawn to correlate with the event.  The Student Timeline Books include a pre-labeled black and white timeline that the student fills in during the lesson. When they are completed, the student will have a ten-page timeline booklet of either the Old Testament or the New Testament.

Each timeline can be completed in one longer lesson, or five short (10-15 minute) lessons, depending on your needs.

For some children, seeing a timeline stretched out on the wall ready as an always-available reference to touch and feel is very valuable.  Grapevine Studies has three new Wall Timelines: Old Testament, New Testament, and Blank.  The Old Testament and New Testament Wall Timelines come in color, and are over ten feet in length when the 8 1/2" x 11" sections are pieced together.  They look like an old scroll with all the appropriate labeling for the study. The content is the same as the in the Student Timeline Books, but in a nicer format for displaying on the wall.  The Teacher Wall Timelines are the completed timelines with all the stick figuring in color.  There are no lessons included in the Wall Timelines.  The Blank Wall Timelines, which are simply non-labeled scroll timelines that can be used for any study, are available in both color and black and white.

All of the Grapevine Studies' new timeline products are currently ON SALE, and will remain so throughout January. Sale prices range from $3.25 - $10.95, depending on the item and format (print or e-book). To sweeten the deal even more, use coupon code JANFS for FREE SHIPPING until January 31, 2012!

I simply can't choose one favorite Bible story BUT I will say the one I feel most strongly about is Abraham's willingness to offer Issac (the one whom he had waited, and waited, and waited for) to the Lord. Always grabs me right in my mommy heart!

My favorite has to be the conversion of Paul. It resonates with me on so many levels.
