What you do
In a designated place, leave a lesson photocopied from your favorite resource with everything needed to teach the lesson. A small cloth bag with a draw string works great. Staple a label to the outside with the title of the lesson, the topic, and the scripture passage. (Large manilla envelopes or file folders can also be used for this. A small toolbox also works.)

Here’s what you should include:
1. A Photocopy or the original teaching plan for the lesson. (This has all the details for the lesson background, key principles and teaching points, and instructions for the learning activities. This should be read in advance of the actual teaching, even if it is 15 minutes before you start.)
2. A teaching outline of the lesson with key points, discussion questions to ask, and activities listed. This is what you actually use when you teach the lesson. You should never teach directly from a curriculum.
3. Any props, objects for objcet lessons, posters, OHP cells, or other materials needed to teach the lesson.
4. Worksheets and pencils for the typical number of youth that attend your program, plus a few extras.
5. Blank Paper for students to write on
6. Whiteboard markers and eraser
7. A small Bible
8. A list of the contents of the bag needed for the lesson.

1. For those times when you are running late and don’t have time to prepare for a lessonand collect all the resources needed.
2. When you need to teach a lesson outside the church in someone’s home, at a school, or even at another church. Just grab your “Lesson to Go” and you have everything you need.
3. When you get delayed, or find yourself ill and you need someone else to teach a lesson for you. They will appreciate your advanced preparation.

After you have taught the lesson, be sure to replace your “Lesson to Go” for the next time you find yourself in a crunch!
