These timeline characters are great for helping students see the big picture of the Bible. Create a large timeline on the wall or a portable timeline in a binder. You can also attach craft sticks to figures and create small puppets for acting out Bible stories.
Free Bible Coloring Pages & Visuals
You can use free Bible coloring pages to complement Sunday school lessons...or just for fun.
If you’re like me, you may have found yourself scouring the internet for coloring pages that will tie in with your Sunday school
lesson. I’ve often gotten frustrated and ended up making my own. I’m not an artist, so I end up looking for clip art or asking my daughter to draw something for me. (Thanks, Emily! :D) If I'm going to use coloring pages, I really want them to reinforce what I am teaching.
Why Use Bible Coloring Pages?
The main reasons I use coloring pages are:
reinforce a point from the Bible lesson or memory verse. Sometimes just
the act of writing or coloring will cement a concept in a learner’s
To have something to send home with the children as a
reminder of what they have learned. This also gives parents a chance to
see what their kids have been learning.
To occupy hands and
minds in a productive way if “big church” goes long or when I need to
focus on another child (for example, during small group time). I keep a
binder full of extra coloring pages in my classroom for this purpose. I
place the coloring pages in clear plastic sleeves in the binder so kids
can easily see and choose a page that interests them.
The main reasons I use visuals are:
To reinforce the lesson as I am teaching.
To have a visual reminder (by posting on a board or wall) of what we are learning throughout the quarter or year.
To coordinate with coloring sheets or other activities in an attempt to, once again, reinforce the lesson.
