Bible Match Me

Thursday, May 23, 2019
As you can see from the list below, this is an extensive review of  35 people in the Bible. I created these thinking if someone states a person in the Bible, what is usually the first thing (or one of the details) you think of for that person. There are several options to use these and there are enough to create a lesson (s) with these cards, task cards, posters and more! And this is great for a wide range of ages, too. There is a lesson with a condensed paragraph for each person.
The Match Me cards are divided. I made them simple to cut squares. I would print on cardstock and use a paper cutter to divide them. There are 4 sets per page and they are all in color only.  The person and a picture is on the left side and the corresponding event is on the right with a brief description and a picture.
These can be divided with the left side in a pile and the right side in a pile for the students to put together correctly. They can be used with a single student, in pairs or as a group. The left side can be glued to a file folder and the student can lay the correct right side on top of each person to create a file folder game.
Or, the student can glue one side in an interactive notebook (one per page). As you discuss each Bible person, the student can glue (or lay if you want to reuse) to the correct page and write notes and scripture about each as you discuss them. The task cards can be added with a space to write and answer each question also.
Cut around the outside solid line and cut down the center dotted line. You can save time by just using a paper cutter to cut in the center space of each set and cut on the dotted lines. This includes the teacher's list of the people and what they did. Click here to download the Match Me cards.
Here is the list of the people included.
(Adam & Eve are included in the color cards, lesson & posters.
Sorry, they were added later so they are not in every download.)
These are the same cards as the above, but are words only. There are not any graphics.

I decided to create a lesson using some of these printables. I used the posters below in the order that they are in the Bible. I set my printer to print 4 pages onto 1 page so the cards above printed on 3 pages. I included the list and put it in the bag. They are so cute at 4 per page! (That's 16 sets of cards per piece of paper.)
 I purchased the 6x6 mini fabric tote bags on clearance at Hobby Lobby (or Dollar Tree, Oriental Trading) to put the goodies in. I put the left side cards and the right side cards in their own library pocket. You could use envelopes, baggies, etc. I also like the small jewelry craft zipper bags for projects like this. Click here to print labels for the game cards. I printed a 2-per page answer sheet, folded it in half and put it in the bag. I also added a 'game board'. They seem to be willing to learn it more if it is called a game. Click here for the game board.
I knew there would not be enough time to study all these people in one class, even briefly. So, I printed a set of the posters using the printer settings shown above and printed 2 per page to make flash cards. I printed them on cardstock and cut out around the edges and used a snap ring to keep them together (laminate if possible). I have this type of flash card questions handy and when I have 5 or rarely 10 minutes left, we review basic Bible facts. I used this set instead for several months so we could just do a quick Q&A when we did the lesson.
This lesson is super condensed for each person. I went over these people in one lesson, but that is really pushing it to learn about this many people in one class. But, it helped reviewing them before we actually had the lesson. You can remove some if you want to. The one-paragraph lesson notes are made to cut the sides off and tape each lesson to the back of the visuals.
Click here to download the condensed facts for each person.
The posters have everything the same, but are full page to use for teaching and/or bulletin boards. There is a one-verse scripture added to easily be able to find the detail that is used for each person.
To pull these all together, this Word Match worksheet has the same people for the students to draw a line to each correct detail about them. This is black & white only and includes the teacher's answer sheet. Click here to download.
The task cards are divided into two sets.
Sorry, the worksheet is by itself and can be used with any of the printables on this page. There is a 2-page and a 1-page with less writing space in this download. They are black and white only.
More can be found under Labels on the right.

Another Match Me Set is coming soon!

  1. The Bible Match Me flash cards are great! Thanks for sharing your work! I think I will print a set for each child in my class and present the cards to them (in a cute carrying bag, of course) as a little "graduation gift" before they move on to the first grade class. They will be so excited!


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment! I appreciate it! They will be added as soon as they are approved.
