Genesis Bible Study for Kids

Updated on February 10, 2014

Genesis Bible Study for Children

Many foundations for the Christian faith are found in Genesis so it is great to study this book with children. Genesis means "beginnings" and it explains the beginnings of everything - except God of course, because he has always been and had no beginning. This book of the Bible tells of the creation of the universe, how sin came into the world, how different nations and languages arose, and the beginning of the nation of Israel through whom God would send the Savior, Jesus Christ.

As you read through the book of Genesis, it may be a good idea for your children to create a notebook or binder of what you study to consolidate what they hear and also to act as a reminder when they look through it at a later date.

What to include in your Genesis notebook

One of my favorite ways to help kids study the Bible is to simply read through the Bible. After reading a section, you could discuss it or have them write down what they learned. Alternatively they could narrate to you what they read or heard and (particularly for younger students) you could write it down. Then they could copy what you have written onto a notebooking page.

There are plenty of printables on this page for your student to include in his notebook or binder - coloring pages, worksheets, and even some of the craft items. I have created cover or title pages for some of the main events or characters in Genesis which are free for you to download and use with your kids. I have also designed some lined pages which can be used in many different ways to allow for great creativity.

What to do with those loose sheets of paper

One of my most useful tools during my homeschooling years was my comb binder. If you have a comb binder you can easily bind those loose pages to form a book which will be a prized possession for many years.

Alternatively you can punch holes in the pages or put them into plastic sleeves for storing in a binder.

This comb binder can punch up to 10 sheets of paper at a time and bind up to 150 pages (or 300 pages double-sided) - now that's some serious notebooking!

      I was very excited to find this, I was looking for something for 5th and 6th graders. I would like to make a book about what is in each book. This is great to start! Thanks
