Your children will enjoy this Bible curriculum no matter what their learning style is!

The Word in Motion uses hand motions as a starting point for an expanded bibe homeschool curriculum that engages the heart, head, and hands. Although the course employs multiple learning styles—visual, auditory, verbal, and kinetic—the motion element gets kids up and moving while giving them a tool for learning and remembering every major character and event from both the Old and New Testaments. The motions incrementally build on one another as you progress through the course.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Why is it called “The Word in Motion”?

    The Word in Motion was developed by Apologia in partnership with Walk Thru the Bible, whose popular live events are designed around families learning a series of motions and key words that tell the story of the Bible from beginning to end. Adapted and designed specifically for homeschooling families, The Word in Motion uses these motions as a starting point for an expanded curriculum that engages the heart, head, and hands.

  • What grades is this series designed to teach?

    The series has been designed for use with elementary and middle school students, grades K–8. However, the series is appropriate and instructive for family members of all ages.

  • Does it matter if we start with the Old testament or New Testament?

    Yes and no. Although each volume of The Word in Motion will stand on its own and constitutes a complete course of study, Apologia strongly recommends beginning with the Old Testament. Knowing the key people, places, events, and themes of the Old Testament will build a solid foundation for students to have a clearer understanding of the events recorded in the Gospels as well as the teachings of the New Testament.

  • Does this course require a lot of preparation to teach?

    Not at all. Like most Apologia products, the Word in Motion curriculum doesn’t require a teacher’s manual, nor is there any preparation time involved! The lesson plans included in the notebooking journal provide clear directions as to what to do each day.
