Notable Places in the Bible

Mark your location on a wall map of the world with a wet erase marker (if the map is laminated) or a map pin.

Ask each child to mark their favorite place to visit, longest trip taken, etc.

After each child has placed a mark on the world map, ask if anyone can locate the lands described in the Bible.

Use a wet erase marker to draw a square around the lands of the Bible.

Tape up a map of the Bible lands and explain that this map is an enlargement of the square you drew on the world map.  We use laminated maps from Rose Publishing titled "The Holy Land," "Where Jesus Walked," The Middle East," and "Paul's Journeys."

Ask the questions below and let the student that answers correctly mark the location on the map.

If the students do not know the answer, do a Bible drill.  Give the students the Bible reference.  First one to find the verse reads the passage and marks the location on the map.
