In this dig-deep activity, kids will get a chance to use some cool Bible tools (concordance, Bible dictionary, etc) as well as get gain an overview of most of the books in the Bible. We had a few extra teachers sit in on this class in case kids needed help, but for the most part these elementary kids really flew with the lesson. This would be a great activity for homeschooling kids as well.
What You Need:
- Bible Book Report Templates (grab your free printables below)
- Cool Bible Tools: Bible Dictionary, Kids Concordance, etc.
Older Kids Bible Book Report Free Printable
What You Do:
- Print off the appropriate pages for the kids in your class. You’ll notice the older kids have to list “3 Fun Facts” about their assigned book of the Bible while the younger kids have to draw a picture from the book.
- Gather and lay out cool Bible tools as well as Children’s Picture Bibles (find some of my favorite resources below)
- Demonstrate how to use the books and then let the kids get to work.
- Be sure to be available to answer any questions that might come up.
- After the work is complete, hang the book reports with pride!
I was so excited about the work the kids did!
Here are a few close ups to give you a better idea of the project.
