Help students memorize books of the Bible
with these Books of the Bible flashcards. Each card has the name of the book in
a legible font, with a unique graphic. Use for drills, put-in-order games,
concentration, and more. Images match the
Bible Trading Cards for consistency.
Lay the cards out on a table in order. Point to each in turn and
have the students say the card. Help them learn to pronounce the names
correctly. After reviewing all the cards, turn a few random cards over. Review
the whole list again, depending on the students to say the names of the
over-turned cards. Turn more over each time until the students can repeat the
Mix up the set and give the class a time limit to get as many in
order as possible. Divide the class into teams if you have lots of students and
give each team a set.
Adhere the cards to magnets and use a cookie sheet or magnetic white board to
put the cards in order.
Make two sets to make a concentration game. Make the students
pronounce each name as they turn them over. For older kids, ask students a
review question when they find a matching set. To help keep them from seeing
through the cards, print the second side (available above).
