Help To The Rescue

Lisa Goodyear's picture

Being organized, having enough material, and planning activities according to your Sunday school lesson can at times be challenging.  Have you ever prepared a Bible lesson from the required curriculum and not had enough material to fill the time? Or better yet, the material in the curriculum book does not meet the needs of your students?  Have you ever had to scramble and search for additional activities, crafts, games, and handouts?  Below is another activity that can be used in the classroom when additional material is needed.  

Name That Person


Help kids learn about the people in the Bible.  Use this fun Bible facts sheet as a


ten to fifteen minute additional activity in the classroom.


Age: 6 year olds - 12 year olds 


Adjust according to age appropriateness




Make copies of this handout and place in the elementary classrooms before


Sunday school.


How to Use:


Give each child a handout and allow five to ten minutes to answer the questions. 


After ten minutes, review and answer the questions with the class.  Discuss any


important facts about each Bible character that is relevant and age appropriate


for learning.  


Deeper Understanding: 


For deeper learning have ten to twelve year olds write the reference


verse related to the question next to the persons name.
