Old Testament Worksheets

  • Updated date:

Here you'll find a series of Old Testament worksheets which I have created. They are all similar in style and layout so that your children can make a very neat notebook about what they have studied. The activities include crossword puzzles, word search puzzles, fill in the blanks, and matching words to clues. I have sorted them, for your convenience, into the books of the Bible. There is even a selection of links to pages which allow you to create your own worksheets.

These worksheets are great for Sunday school, vacation Bible school, homeschooling, religious education, scripture in schools, Bible note-booking, and more.

These printable pages would make great reinforcement for your students after they have studied a particular Bible story or passage. Make sure you bind them together or store them in a binder once they are completed, so your child can enjoy looking through them at a later date.

Another fun activity for children is for them to design their own worksheet, such as a wordsearch or fill-in-the-blank activity, to give to another student to complete. The more adventurous may decide to make a maze or crossword puzzle.
