7 ways to Engage your Natural Learners

Some great insights by Ken Braddy about tapping into learning preferences.

Every person in your Bible study group has a preferred way they like to learn. Researchers have identified 8 learning approaches, and “Natural” is one of them. Few adult group leaders appeal to this particular learning approach; it’s much more common to find Natural methods being used in kids’ groups. Natural learners really enjoy learning methods that incorporate things from nature in the classroom.

If you teach an adult Bible study, here are a few ways to appeal to the Natural learners in your midst:

  1. Show a picture of something from nature (a flower, mountain, lightning, star, branch, animal, etc).
  2. Bring an item from nature to the group and either display it or pass it around (which turns a Natural activity into a Physical activity!).
  3. Invite group members to tell stories about a time they encountered God through His creation.
  4. Take a nature walk.
  5. Plant a tree, bush, or plant.
