  Grade 3:

Heroes in the Bible

By the end of the school year, children in the third grade will be able to: Tell the stories of ten heroes in the Bible, understand that these stories took place in an historical and geographical context, talk about why these historical figures became religious heroes, describe how these heroes felt they were "called" by God, and know several prayers from each faith.

Students will learn about both individual heroes and heroic groups. The class will read about Abraham, Moses, the Maccabees, Samuel and Saul, David, Esther, Ruth and Naomi, John the Baptist, Mary, Jesus and the Disciples. Students will learn about what it means to be a hero (are some of these people unconventional heroes?). They will also talk about what it means to be called by God. The teachers will use maps and charts to show how all of these stories had their own particular historical and geographical context.
