Using Bible Trading CardsUse the cards as incentives for completing lessons or attending class. Review character information:
Students love to collect and will happily meet goals to obtain missing cards. Here's how a fellow teacher uses this desire to enhance her classes.
The cards include a good deal of text, and readers get the most benefit from them. Grade school and lower middle school seem the most enthralled with the cards. But the preschoolers and early readers memorize the images on the front, and grow into the cards. We have had success with grades K-8. We've been thrilled with the enthusiasm that our grade school boys have shown for the cards.How are these cards different from the free files?
These are printed and laminated physical cards rather than computer files. Some new cards are available exclusively in the printed sets. Some original cards have been split into separate cards. The layout of all cards has been improved, with some corrections made. Layout, graphic and font changes have been made to improve the overall quality of the cards. Each set comes with cover cards that provide a list of the set's cards, and tips on using the cards.How are the cards numbered?
The cards are numbered so that students can track which cards they have. Not all numbers are currently in use; we left room for future additions. 0-100 is reserved for Old Testament cards. 101-200 is reserved for New Testament cards. See the card chart for all currently available cards.How many sets are you going to make?
There are several small sets covering both the New and Old Testament, and a smaller set of parables. Future expansions will probably include additional sets based on Biblical events, places, etc.How did you make the cards?
I use CorelDRAW to format and alter the clip art from Logos Bible Clips, a terrific clip art program featuring the art work of Gary Glover, who has graciously contributed his art to this project.How often are new sets released?
New sets are released as they are available. To receive updates when new sets are released, join the Sunday School Sources announcement list.What will happen to the free files?
There are no plans to remove the free files from the site. They are still available for teachers who would like to make the cards themselves.These cards are provided "as is" and may contain unintentional errors.
