Bible Games for Second Graders

October 25, 2010

Contributed by Carol Horen

I teach a class of Second Graders and I noticed that they don’t know their way around the Bible very well, so I invented several games for them.

1) Old or New game: It is just writing out each book of the Bible on colored cardstock and the kids have to guess if the book is in the Old Testament or the New Testament. I use a Bible Timeline so they can see when different things took place.

2) 10 Commandments: I have made a matching game for the 10 Commandments, where I have separated each commandment in half. Example: “Thou shalt have no” is on one piece of paper and “other gods before me” is written on another piece of paper. They have to match them together and put them all in order.

3) Bible Stories: I have continued the matching theme further with Bible stories. “David” will be on one piece of paper and “Goliath” will be on another piece. I read one half and they have to say the other half. We always discuss the stories. I want them to know more than just the names. Sometimes one name will have multiple answers. David and Abigail, David and Goliath, David and Saul…

I use different colored index cards as they are a handy size when cut in half. The 10 Commandments are all one color, the Bible Stories are another color. It helps us find which game we want to play.
