Zacharias can't talk

This page has some general concepts that you may find useful.

There are also some limited copyright issues, which are towards the bottom of that page here. Please do read them. They are not complex!

I also make some comments about the source of material - again please read, especially if you recognise your material! I mean no offense.

There is also an Alphabetical list of resources here

 

 

Zacharias cannot talk

 

On this page you will find a number of downloads that help tell the account of Zacharias seeing an angel, Mary and Elizabeth meeting, and the birth of John the Baptist.

I have included a range of items that I hope can be used by people with varying abilities.

The account of this in the Bible, can be read in Luke 1:5-64

Wordsearches related to Zacharias and the birth of John

Download PDF of four wordsearches. (PDF Download here.)

Some of our folk like word searches, so we have put together some word searches.   Some include mazes.  Some are a bit more complex.  Have fun!

To print these word searches:

  • You can either simply print them off as they are and you will get one per sheet,
  • Or you can back them but this time use LONG EDGE binding which is probably the default.

Note that one of the word searches also has the answers, so if you want to separate the answers, then print the whole document simply without backing.

These word searches were originally downloaded from here and here and here.
