Sunday School Lesson and Activities | How to Find Bible Verses
A Sunday School Lesson to Teach Kids How to Navigate the Bible and Find Bible Verses

Every year when new students enter my Sunday school class, there is a wide discrepancy between kids' ability to navigate the Bible and find Bible verses.

To bridge the gap, I start each year with a lesson on navigating the Bible. Teach kids how to locate Bible verses when given the book, chapter, and verse.

This simple Sunday School lesson has proven invaluable year after year. It helps kids locate the books of the Bible faster so we can achieve our lesson goals instead of fumbling around the Bible looking for verses.

With practice, kids will be able to find the books of the Bible quickly, making it easier for you to teach your other lessons.

The lesson starts by explaining that there are two main parts of the Bible - the Old Testament and the New Testament.  Then, the students will see the various ways that Bible verses are written and explain how to find the book, the chapter, and the verse of a given scripture reference.

Next, students will practice looking up verses while learning that God's Word is true and inspired by the Holy Spirit.

You can choose between various question sheets, memory verse work, or games. Build the lesson to suit your needs!
