Bible Book Scramble
Print on separate index cards the names of the books of the Bible learned so far.
Scramble the cards in a pile, face up, so children can see the book names. Encourage
children to use their Table of Contents. Let them come one at a time and place the cards
in order. The first child finds Genesis and positions it on the floor, tapes it to the wall, or
tacks it on a bulletin board. The second child finds and places Exodus after Genesis,
and so on. Do this several times using the Table of Contents; then put Bibles away, and
try to order the books from memory. Encourage each child to tell a little about his book.
