When would I use Additional Activities?
If you have additional time during Small Group or wish to change any parts of the main lesson, you may choose from alternative options in the Additional Activities Leader Guide. These include extra games, object lessons, crafts, and Bible studies for up to 30 additional minutes of class time.
Each lesson includes Large Group and Small Group. Additional Activities are optional.
Large Group (for Grades 1-6 combined): about 30 minutes.
Small Group (for Grades 1-3 and 4-6): about 30 minutes.
Additional Activities (extra games, object lessons, crafts, and Bible studies if you have extra class time): up to 30 minutes.
Combined, all of these provide materials for up to 90 minutes.
If you have less than an hour for class, you may easily trim an activity.
