About the Adventure Bible Website
The Adventure Bible Website, www.adventurebible.com, is a fun, safe, and free website for kids ages 8-12 from the publishers of the Adventure Bible (Zondervan). The site provides several interactive games, activity sheets, Bible search and resources to help kids learn more about the Bible. Educators, including homeschool parents, can also register students and access over 700 teaching resources as well as have Bible game points tracked onto their teacher classroom page. Check out the video on this page (or right below) which gives you a tour of the Adventure Bible website and explains all you get for the free registration!
Here are links to a few key areas:
1. Online Bible Games See below for descriptions of the 5 games.
2. Bible search. Kids can type in a verse and it comes up along with notes and features to click on for application and background info.
3. Printable activities including crosswords, word searches, devotionals, and Scripture flash cards
Descriptions of the Games:
Truthquest: Truthquest is a trivia game. There are many different categories and three difficulty levels to choose from. The answers are multiple choice.
Books of the Bible: In Books of the Bible, the kids slide the books into the correct Bible book order. They are broken up into sections, about 5-10 books to order at a time.
Leopardy: In Leopardy, kids answer questions in a game similar to Jeopardy, with different money levels and a chance to wager an amount for the final question.
Leapin’ Lemur: Leapin’ Lemur is a game where the kids fill in letters for a Bible verse. It’s similar to Wheel of Fortune.
X Marks the Spot: X Marks the Spot is a map game. Kids identify the correct area on the map and place a flag on it.
I found the games on Adventure Bible website a good way to increase Bible knowledge. I’m glad there is a variety, such as learning Bible verses, learning about Bible geography, and memorizing the order of the books of the Bible, as well as lots of questions about different events and people of the Bible. It’s also great that there are different levels of difficulty in a few of the games.
You don’t have to register as a teacher on the site in order to use it. The kids can still play lots of great Bible-learning games without any type of registration. But homeschool parents (or others) who register on the site (free of charge) can also access hundreds of additional resources including maps, illustrations, fill-in-the-blank sheets, answer keys, timelines and more. I downloaded a crossword puzzle, Bible reading plan, and a bulletin insert. There is so much available!
Zondervan also just released a brand-new Adventure Bible app for iPad as well. This free app, available through the iTunes store, allows you to be able to access the games that are on the website via the iPad. They are the same 5 games I described above. I’m so glad to have a new app–and website–for my kids to learn about the Bible!
(Disclosure: In exchange for this honest review of the Adventure Bible website and app, Zondervan will send me a copy of the newly updated Adventure Bible. This post also contains affiliate links.)
