Books of the Bible: (Books of the Bible review)

I adapted a Catholic version of this game to help students learn about the 73 books of the Bible (Catholic) and how the books are divided into categories. *Some Bibles may present variations of these categories, or they may group the books differently so I did not do the color coding sections like they did in the above game board. I did this game board in MS Word and you can change it any way you like. You may wish to adapt this activity to avoid confusion for your students and replace the Bible books and/or category names with the names your students have learned. You can also change the colors of the spaces and group the categories on the game board.

This board game can be used in numerous ways to teach children:

1) to count the 73 books
2) read the names of each book
3) identify the colors on the board
4) spell the books of the Bible
5) spell the abbreviations of the books of the Bible

*Church and Respect

Church and Respect Lesson- This lesson is about church and respect. This lesson will teach why and how children are supposed to act in church and what it means to respect others (parents, leaders, and others). By respecting others children are also respecting God and that makes him happy. The struggle with this lesson is that the traditional church has become more casual and parents once knew what was expected of their children. By understanding that the church is God's house should help the children understand how they are expected to act.
