Learning about missionaries is a great way to teach our children about different cultures and people in our world. 

Missionary stories are also an amazing way to teach our children about God’s provision and protection. They will be fascinated with the stories of regular people just like us, stepping outside of their comfort zone and going to a foreign land to preach the gospel. If you are wanting your children to learn more about missionaries, there are many different ways that you can do this:

Learning About Missionaries with Geography:

You can incorporate missionary studies while studying geography and learning about different continents. You can learn about the people groups in that particular continent and find stories of famous missionaries that served in that country. You can also find missionaries or organizations that your church supports that lives and serves in that area that you are currently learning about.

Here are some printables and unit studies on famous missionaries in different countries:

Learning About Missionaries During Bible or Morning Time:

You can incorporate missionary studies during your Bible studies or morning time. If you have a morning basket, this is a great place to keep some good missionary read alouds. You can also use this time to look through some missionary magazines, and pick a specific area to pray about. I know some families that have a prayer board where they put pictures of missionaries and parts of the country that they are praying for up there.

Here are some general printables and unit studies to learn about missionaries during your morning time or as read alouds:
