7 Fun Things to Do With Bible Flash Cards

Written by Dianna Wiebe on .

If you’re looking for a fun and engaging way to incorporate flash cards into your Bible study, there are plenty of creative activities you can try. For example, you can use the flash cards to play games like Bible memory match, where students have to match a verse to its related reference, or Bible charades, where students act out the verse on the flash card for others to guess. You can also use the flash cards to create interactive Bible quizzes, where students compete to see who can answer the most questions correctly.

What materials do I need for flash cards?

When it comes to materials, creating your own flash cards is easy and inexpensive. All you need is some card stock or paper, scissors, and a pen or marker to write the verses or concepts you want to study. If you prefer digital flash cards, there are plenty of apps and software available that allow you to create and customize your own cards on your computer or mobile device. Grapevine also has some high quality timeline and trivia  Flash Cards!

  • Flash Cards (pre-printed) OR Optional Blank Index Cards
  • Bible
  • Colored pencils
  • Dry erase board and markers

Once you have found all your materials is time to think about how you might use your flash cards and what goals you have in mind for the flash cards.

Flash Card Tips for Teachers

As you introduce flash cards to your students and use them as a teaching tool there are few things to keep in mind.

• Make sure your students can clearly see and read the flash card from where they are sitting or standing.
• Keep the cards in a place that helps them to stay fresh and clean.
• If you ask a question and your student gets it wrong, make sure they know the answer before moving on.
• Allow children to make correction within a few seconds.

7 Fun Things to do with Flash Cards

To keep your students engaged and interested, it’s important to change things up and add a variety of activities and games. You can try having students work in pairs or small groups to quiz each other or create their own flash cards based on the topic or area your are studying.

1. Put the flashcards in chronological order.

2. Recite a verse or find a verse related to the flashcard. Create extra flash cards with memory verses you choose.

3. Recite a fact about that card and pass it to the next person. For added difficulty, each person passes the card to the next person and that person must give a new fact. The last person to recite a new fact keeps the card.

4. Play Bible charades with the flash cards.

5. Ask a question related to that character/event to the others.

The question must begin with one of the following words:
o Who
o What
o When
o Where
o Why
o How

6. Create your own flash cards.

7. Play various flash card games, such as memory or matching.

As you begin to using flash cards into your Bible study routine, be prepared to witness the powerful impact they can have on your students’ spiritual growth. Not only will they help to improve memory retention and recall, but they can also open up a whole new world of discussions and questions that can deepen your students’ understanding and appreciation of the Bible.

Whether you use them in class, on trips, or during personal study time, don’t miss out on this chance to help your children or students grow in their faith. And if you have any creative ideas or unique ways you’ve used flash cards in your Bible study, I would love to hear them! Together, we can continue to explore new and exciting ways to enhance our study of God’s Word.
