This program is recommended for ages 10 and up and for beginners with basic knowledge of computer. Computer Bible Games For Microsoft Small Basic is a curriculum using 10 Lessons teaching children how to use Microsoft Small Basic. There are links and instructions to download this program to your computer. After you download this program the first lesson will introduce you to Computer Bibles Games and Small Basic.

Just a few games to note that are included in this download:
Noah’s Ark                                  Daniel and The Lions Den
Elijah and The Ravens                 The Lost Coin
Prodigal Son                               Bible Scramble

Getting started: The student will open small basic and then open a welcome file to begin the program. They will then save the file to their name at the close of the program. 
Within maybe 2 hours the student will be introduced to the Microsoft Small Basics program through the downloading process, reading all information enclosed with the program and working through the lesson all of course depends on how well your student knows the computer. In the second lesson the student learns about the parts of the program that causes the screen to pop up, comments, titles and more. Each lesson builds on the next lesson and the learning variables. 

Our thoughts: My oldest (15) used this program. It was fairly easy to follow along. She struggled in minor areas only because she is not a hundred percent computer savvy. Some of the vocab was confusing to her but other wise this program was fairly easy. However, I do recommend that your child have some basic computer skills prior to using this curriculum as it may prove to be a little difficult for them. Otherwise we really enjoyed the chance to review this curriculum. We will continue to use it and see where it will take us to from here.
