Sunday School curriculum must be Bible based. It must provide a deeper understanding of the Bible and must be age appropriate. It must also connect with children and their life which is  culturally adaptable and must teach basic Christian principles and doctrines.

What do we need to be mindful of when teaching children in Sunday School?
Teens are different-they have different intellectual, emotional, and spiritual traits
You need to know your students: Sunday School teaching is a ministry that wins only through genuine relationship.
Know your lesson objectives
Cognitive – what students ought to know after the lesson
Behavioral – what students ought to do after the lesson
Pray for your students daily that the holy spirit minister to their hearts
Captivate reluctant or indifferent students
Motivate students seeking a deeper relationship with God; and committed to discipleship
Activate students to step out in service to the church and community
Teaching is not just a lecture  but it is an interaction: encourage questions, measure their understanding, generate worksheets, discussions, case studies, questions, role playing, and tests.
