  1. READ Exodus 25:8. Take time to show your child how to look up a passage in the Bible. Show them how to navigate books, chapters, and verses. Ask your child: according to the verse, why did God ask the people to build a sacred tent? Why do you think we don’t need this any more? (Pssst…this is before Jesus.)
  2. WATCH the video teaching below with your family this week. Talk about the video as a family. What stood out to you? What did you like? What did you want to ask a question about? (Tip: If it’s helpful, consider pausing the video as you watch it together, and ask questions or talk about things that stick out to you as you go!)
