This is a Protestant publication, so there are a couple small problems (for details, see the Introduction to Sound Begininngs in the articles section of this web site), but the "Catholic" version has the identical problems.

    Home Catechesis Manual for ages 9-12
    This 200+-page manual provides scripted lessons and material-making patterns for teaching Salvation History. It includes presentations for all the Old Testament covenants (Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, David) and their typology. Each covenant is explored through the use of two uniquely creative elements: the Story Box and the Covenant Circle. A Story Box is created for each lesson and includes two and three-dimensional objects that the child and parent use as the story unfolds. The Covenant Circle ia a follow-up work that beautifully synthesizes each story with its meaning and typology, providing a hands-on meditation experience for the child that speaks to him through sign and symbol. These lessons require a considerable amount of preparation but the time spent will greatly enrich both the parent and the child.
