This is a center I set up in my classroom with a variety of Christian Bible story learning materials.
Here are the materials I included. Most of these are resources I collected from various sources. Hopefully this list will give you some ideas. Even if you aren’t able to find exactly the same items, maybe it will help you decide on things to include in your classroom.
I put this nativity set out at advent and it stays the rest of the year. This set was a resin set of Christmas ornaments that I bought at the after Christmas sales very inexpensively.
This is a simple wood Noah’s Ark that came with two wooden people and wooden animals (which are in the wooden box beside the ark). I purchased this used from Ebay.
Bible Story Puzzles
These four Melissa & Doug peg puzzles have pictures of four of the main Bible stories and were found in an online store.
Since I was teaching in a Catholic school at the time, we had a basket of rosaries.
During advent, I set up a table with a nice brocade table cloth. I made the wreath by cutting a piece of green felt into a wreath shape. I placed four battery powered tea light candles on the wreath and covered each candle in pink or purple paper. Each week, we would “light” a candle by switching on the light.
These are wooden letters from a craft store that I painted. Children use them to spell the name of Jesus.
This is a set from Family Life. You introduce the set by showing children each piece and telling them one very simple statement about each. Children can then retell the story themselves as the touch each piece.
