Each lesson features an introduction to the main topic, learning objectives, a short story, thought-provoking questions, important vocabulary words, two Bible memory verses, interesting interdisciplinary topics, godly character traits that students should demonstrate as a response, prayer, discussion questions, and a story about a person who encountered Jesus during His time on earth. The multi-chapter stories focus on a family during the Civil War as well as the life of an early Chinese immigrant family.
