Old Testament Worksheets

Updated on August 23, 2017
Source

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.

You may also be interested in my Sunday school resources page which is the gateway to hundreds of Sunday School resources including coloring pages, crafts, worksheets, and more.

Using These Activity Pages

Please feel free to download these sheets and print them to use with your class or family, but please do not sell them or post them anywhere else on the web. Feel free to link to this page but please do not link directly to the Google Drive versions of the pictures.

      Sorry about the late reply. To download individual worksheets, you will need to:

      1. click on "source" under a picture

      2. click on the name of the file that appears

      3. download the file that pops up on docs.google

      Hope that helps

      Looks great, but how do you download these worksheets? All the download links on the right side of the page have the word "advertisement" above them. I don't want to get a virus! I tred using the "copy/paste" commands - but it is poor quality.

      I like it when God changed Jacob to Israel, like when he change other names of people in the Bible, it was because they had a new identity in that name!
