Slavery + CRE

From todays Christian Religious Education material, “Quest”, Unit 5, session 1:

“Clarify: Egypt – where the Israelites were Pharoah’s unpaid workers for many years”

Do grade 5 + 6 not understand the concept of slavery? Is it offensive?

The Exodus was not a workers union movement. Not to mention we jump into Numbers out of nowhere, then do Nehemiah the next week, and the following week back to Numbers. Why not just do books of the Bible in chronological sequence? I know that “educational experts” have put together this material, but it seems to be missing some common sense.

I love teaching CRE, but this is really frustrating.
