Acts & Life of Paul Bulletin Boards

Saturday, September 8, 2012
These Anchor Charts have been updated.
Please look at the updated posters before printing the older graphics on this page.

Click on the link under the picture to print each of the following posters.
Here are a couple of printable posters I will use on the walls and for visuals:
This sign can be used for any Bible lesson, especially for travelers and the different places. Really, it can be used any number of ways. This has been discontinued by Carson Dellosa.
I use this train for our study in Acts. Each car has a short title to tell the kids what questions are inside. We use them for review, and I let them take turns putting the laminated papers back in the cars, which they think is great! This did get published in the very last issue, of the very last page of Ideashop by Gospel Advocate! Here is a closer look at a car:
Here are what they basically look like. A question, a picture or clipart, and Lift-the-Flap answer.
Everything is laminated. I used cardstock on the backs of the cars to make a pocket. Make sure the cardstock fits on the back and doesn't show on the front. It needs to be big enough to hold the question sheets. I glued around three edges of each piece of cardstock, bottom and the two sides, and used my Aleene's Tacky Glue to attach the cardstock to the back of the cars. Mine looks like this:
Just to give you an idea, my train cars are labeled with: Acts, Light, Basket, Lydia, Paul & Silas, Aquila & Priscilla, Eutychus, Jerusalem, "Trials", Malta, Rome. 
Also, when I staple them to the wall, I line them up, and staple the pocket in the middle to the wall, then staple the sides of the car to the wall. That makes it a lot easier to put the worksheets back in the pockets.
You can find more about the train and download the posters here.
(This is copied from an earlier post) This is not a great picture, but I have this on the wall with Bible Facts as the title (top right). We use this for review about basic Bible knowledge (grades 1 & 2) when I have extra time.

The questions are on the labels with a clue picture, and the answer is inside on the letters.

What are the 2 parts of the Bible?

How many books/letters are in the Bible?

How many books are in the Old Testament?

How many books/letters are in the New Testament?

How many letters do we have from Paul?

What is the first book of the Bible?

What does the first book start with? (creation)

What is the first verse of the Bible?

Who wrote the first 5 books? (Say them)

What is the first book of the New Testament?

What does the first book (Matthew) tell us? (Birth of Jesus)

What is the last book of the Bible? Revelation (no s)

The mailbox can be found here.

Right next to the mailbox, I have these numbers for the letters we have from Paul. These should be cut out and laminated before attaching to the wall:
Click here to print the 13 in green, pink, and blue.
On a wall right next to the mailbox, for further discussion, I have the numbers 39 with a plus sign and 27 with an equal sign with 66. Also 13 for the letters we have from Paul. You can purchase them here. (Different website)
Here are some older bulletin boards for Acts, if you are interested. You might get an idea!
You could use any mailbox. You could use real envelopes and write on the outside.
Or, print envelope or postcards on clipart. Here what mine have printed on them:
From: Paul in Corinth To: The Saints in Rome (Romans 1:7)
From: Paul in Rome  To: The Saints in Philippi  (Phil. 1:1)
From: Paul in Rome  To: Timothy (2 Timothy 1:4)
From: Paul in Rome  To: The Saints of Ephesus  (Eph. 1:1)
From: Paul in Ephesus   To: The Church at Corinth  (1 Cor.)
From: Paul in Macedonia  To: The Church at Corinth and the Saints at Achaia  (2 Corinthians)
From: Paul in Rome to: The Saints at Colosse (Colossians 1:1)
From: Paul  To: The Churches of Galatia  (Gal. 1:2)
 From: Paul in Macedonia  To: Timothy (1 Tim. 1:2)
From: Paul in Corinth To: Philemon  (Philemon 1:1)
From: Paul in Corinth To: The Church of the Thessalonians (1 Thess. 1:1)
From: Paul in Corinth To: The Church of the Thessalonians (2 Thess. 1:1)

This was used in a Jr High class, and also a teen class. You can find the Roman soldier here.
