HOOK: Review the last lesson- where you found out what a bible 'feature' is-- review your post its or list. Then ask the kids to show you the Bibles that they have.
LOOK: look at a verse in more than one translation.(discuss translations, what they are, just like languages, we can phrase it differently in the same language) It would be best if this verse connects to your recent devotions, Sunday school lesson, or has been used in the kids lives recently.
If not choose a verse that commands us to be in the Word like John 8: 31-32. Discuss...
