CHILDREN'S BIBLE QUIZZING 2021-2022

Get ready to journey through the books of Joshua, Judges, and Ruth, each week as we preparing for Bible Quizzing! During this time we will learn more about the Bible while having fun with friends. This also provides an opportunity to compete in quiz meets against other churches in our area. Children in grades 1-6 are invited to join us each week after school on Mondays from 3:30-4:30. 

 

We will also have a bible quiz group meet on Sunday mornings from 9:30 - 10:15 starting on September 12th. You are welcome to attend one or both. 


SIX-YEAR SCOPE AND SEQUENCE

There are six books in the Children’s Bible Quizzing study series that have been specifically chosen for children to gain an overarching understanding of the chronology and meaning of the Bible. The people in each lesson come to life as kids learn about their humanity and God’s plan to make all things new. While God sometimes uses miracles to achieve His purposes, He often works in relationship with His beloved creation: people. 

Each book in the Children’s Quizzing curriculum has been chosen intentionally to help children gain an overall understanding of the chronology of the Bible. The six studies in the scope and sequence are:

  • Studies in Joshua, Judges, and Ruth (2021-22)
  • Studies in 1 & 2 Samuel (2022-23)
  • Studies in Matthew (2023-24)
  • Studies in Acts (2024-25)
  • Studies in Genesis (2025-26)
  • Studies in Exodus (2026-2027)

These six books were chosen because together they give the overall chronology of God’s chosen people, the Israelites, and a “snapshot” of the Bible.

  • The series begins with the Creation account, the first people, and the Patriarchs (Genesis).
  • It continues with the Israelites living in and leaving Egypt (Exodus), and follows them as they establish themselves in Canaan (Joshua, Judges, & Ruth, and 1 & 2 Samuel).
  • The two New Testament books center on the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus (Matthew), and tell how the gospel of salvation came to the Gentiles (Acts).


ABOUT QUIZZING

Cost: Quizzing is $20 per competitors (includes one study book, one Scripture portion, and a T-shirt for each quizzer). 

  • The philosophy of Children’s Quizzing is Bible study. It is important to help children know what the Bible says and help them demonstrate biblical teachings in actual life situations. The goal of Children’s Quizzing is for children to know the God of the Bible.

    The purpose of Children’s Quizzing Bible study and competition is to help children:

    • Desire to study the Bible.
    • Get acquainted with basic Bible study.
    • Grow in understanding of the overall chronology of the Bible.
    • Learn that God is the central character and Hero of the Bible.
    • Gain increased understanding of God as He is revealed in each study.
    • Understand how people in the Bible interacted with God, and know how people today may do so also.
    • Enjoy quizzing competition.
    • Grow in the ability to reflect Christian attitudes and behaviors during competition.

    In Children’s Bible Quizzing, each child challenges himself or herself to reach award levels. In this approach, children quiz against a base of knowledge, not each other. The multiple-choice method of competition allows every child to answer every question. This approach makes it possible for every child to score a perfect score.

  • Dr. Digalot, a famous archeologist and his sidekick, 


    Canteen the Camel, lead the way as children study each week’s passage. 

    There are twenty Dig Sites (weekly lessons) on the “expedition” known as Go and Make Disciples!

    Curriculum Features:

    • Teaching Tips: Ideas for teaching the Dig Site in the most effective ways possible.
    • Discussion Questions: Additional questions that naturally spring out of the narrative being studied to help spur thinking and conversation with the children. 
    • Dig Deeper: Extra ideas for leaders and groups who want additional study on the topic of the Dig Site. This section was also designed with home school families in mind. Suggestions include areas to study such as: reading, math, science, creative writing, and extra Bible study.
    • Canteen’s Questions: Supplemental questions that appear only in the Leader’s Guide to help kids review the facts learned in each Dig Site. Since these questions do not provide multiple-choice answers, they require kids to think on a deeper level.
    • Preteen Secret Passage: Takes each Dig Site to the next level, with special games, activities, and discussion questions designed with 5th and 6th graders in mind.
    • Features for Beginning Readers:
      • A storytelling component helps children learn the lessons a different way
      • 20 Motions–one for each Dig Site (lesson)–help children learn the essential idea of each Dig Site through physical movement. When children string all 20 motions together, they will know the essence of the entire book they have studied.
  • Competition is an optional part of the Children’s Bible Quizzing ministry. Each church and each child decide if they want to participate in a series of competition events.


    All competitions are to be held in accordance with the “Children’s Quizzing Official Competition Rules and Procedures.”


    In Children’s Bible Quizzing, children do not compete against each other to determine one winner. Churches do not compete against each other to determine the top church.


    Children’s Quizzing provides Bible study review and competition questions for two levels of ability and comprehension.

    • The RED Level is for younger children, beginning readers, and older quizzers who need or desire a simpler level of review and competition. RED Level competition questions include some from Dr. Digalot’s Challenge in the Children’s Quizzing curriculum plus rewritten questions and entirely new questions.
    • The BLUE Level is for older children, better readers, and younger quizzers who need or desire an advanced form of review and competition. BLUE Level competition questions include some from Dr. Digalot’s Challenge, plus rewritten questions and entirely new questions. These questions require a higher level of thought processing.

    Although the RED and BLUE Levels of review questions are developed for particular comprehension levels, they are not limited to certain grades. Children can use either level, depending on whether they desire an easier or an advanced level of review.


    Invitational Quiz: This is a non-qualifying quiz at different locations throughout the year.

    Zone Quiz: This is the first qualifying quiz of the year. It’s typically held in February and covers all Dig Sites. Students must participate to move on to District.

    District Quiz: This is the second qualifying quiz of the year. It is typically held in March in Lubbock, TX.  Students must get a score of 80% or above to move on to the next quiz.

    Regional Quiz: This quiz is typically held in June at Southern Nazarene University in Bethany, OK. Registration for this quiz opens after the District Quiz has taken place.

  • Studies in Joshua, Judges, and Ruth is a Bible study—kid’s style! There are major lesson sections dedicated to active learning. Kids get into Joshua, Judges, and Ruth and learn what the Bible says. Activities are specifically geared to help children immerse themselves in the ancient world, learning what life was like for Moses and the Israelites. Each week children build their spiritual vocabulary as they incorporate FAITH WORDS into their everyday lives. Characteristics of God are revealed in each weekly Dig Site to help children learn who God is, what He is like, and how He interacts with people.


    What Kids Learn in Studies in Exodus:

    • More than 470 years after God promised to give Abraham the land of Canaan, Joshua led the people into that land.
    • Although the Lord gave the Israelites the land, they had to fight many battles. Sometimes they made mistakes. 
    • After Joshua died, the Israelites began to worship Baal and other Canaanite gods.
    • During this time, the Lord provided “judges,” such as Deborah, Gideon, and Samson, who led Israel in times of trouble and helped them stay faithful to the Lord. 
    • During the time of the judges, there lived a Moabite widow named Ruth. She chose to go with her Israelite mother-in-law, Naomi, to Israel and to serve God.
    • Ruth married Boa, a wealthy relative of Naomi’s husband. She became the great-grandmother of King David, one of the most famouse men in the Bible. Children will study more about King David in Studies in 1 & 2 Samuel (2022-2023). 

    Adventures in the Promised Land is the theme for Studies in Joshua, Judges, and Ruth. Through inductive Bible Study and fun activities, Dr. Digalot and Canteen “time warp” back to Bible times and travel with Joshua and the Israelites. Kids will learn how God is faithful and the importance of following Him.

    Along the way, Dr. Digalot and Canteen discover God always keeps His promises!
