During the season of Advent (Latin word meaning coming or arrival) we prepare to celebrate Jesus' first coming as a baby in Bethlehem. Sometimes it helps to add ideas or give direction for your family's preparations as the busyness of the season can drown out the reasons why we celebrate.
Continuing in the tradition of our first Advent Unit Study—Jotham’s Journey, this edition is centered around the book Tabitha's Travels. This second book in Arnold Ytreeide's trilogy focuses on the character, Tabitha, you find in the first book, Jotham's Journey.
A combination of Tabitha's story, associated scripture passages, and a number of group projects help make this Advent Unit Study another true family celebration. As you reflect on traditions to celebrate this season, start with some of the simple practices included in this study.
Note: It is not necessary to have completed the first unit study, Advent Unit Study—Jotham’s Journey in order to do this one.
This study is ideal for grades 2-8 (ages 7-13), but can be enjoyed by the entire family. Some components of this product are consumable, but you will only need one for your family to use together. The package is not available without the Tabitha's Travels title; if you already own the book, it could be a wonderful Christmas gift for family or a friend.
This study includes 28 days of material; enough to cover from the first day of Advent (the Sunday after Thanksgiving) through Christmas.
This package includes:
- Tabitha's Travels by Arnold Ytreeide
- Daily schedule and notes for each day of Advent including suggested questions to encourage discussion within your family
