One of the best ways to explain how the New Testament fits in with the Old Testament is to create a visual timeline.  Continuing with the timeline created in 5 Year Week 31 with the Old Testament, print the New Testament printable and have the child draw pictures of eight major stories of the New Testament. Cut out and place the drawings on the timeline using string to connect the timeline and the drawing.   (Dates are approximate)
