JUNIOR BIBLE QUIZ
Helping children develop a love for the Bible...and an understanding that its truth guides their daily lives!
What is JBQ?
Junior Bible Quiz offers a fun, exciting way to motivate children to understand the all-important truths in God's Word. Through cooperative learning children work together on teams to learn and understand the questions and answers from the Bible Fact-Pak. Then using cooperative competition the children meet with other teams for a fun quizzing match. There are twenty questions in a match, with two teams of quizzers trying to beat each other to the buzzers to get the first shot at the answers.
What is the Bible Fact-Pak?
The Bible Fact-Pak contains over 500 questions and answers drawn from the Bible. Some questions provide background about the Bible and its contents. Other questions explore the teachings and doctrine within the Bible. All of the questions together give children solid basis for a strong and lasting relationship with God.
How old should the children be to quiz?
A child is eligible to quiz if he/she is starting grades one through six in the fall. However, in studying the development of children, we find that from ages eight to nine the memorization skills start to peak and at ages ten to eleven children love to compete.
