Your Number's Up - A Super Bible Review Activity For Your Elementary Kids

Have your kids ever played "Steal the Bacon"? Well, here is a fun little Biblical twist to this game that I am sure your children will love. I call it "Your Number's Up!"

 
Here's what you do:

Divide your class evenly into 2 teams. Number each team off with the same set of numbers. For example, if each team has 4 players, you will give out the numbers 1 through 4. Have the two teams face each other in straight equidistant lines about 20 feet apart. I place down 2 rows of masking tape to help kids know their boundary line. Now make one card that says "Old Testament" and one card that says "New Testament". Laminate these cards for long-term use and durability. Place these cards in the center between the 2 teams.

Before playing, you will want to prepare some Bible review questions that require an either/or type answer. For example, you might ask the kids, "Does the story of Abraham sacrificing Isaac take place in the Old Testament or in the New Testament?" Other choice for either/or type answers might be "Yes" and "No" or "True" or "False". You could even quiz your kids on memory Bible verses that they should know from 2 different books of the Bible such as Romans and John. I think you get the picture. Once you have your list of review questions, you are ready to play the game.

Tell the children that they need to remember the number that was given them. Read a question and then call out a number. Let's say you call out the number "3". Both of the "3's" from the 2 different teams will race to the center and try and be the first one to pick up the correct answer to the question. The team who is successful earns 100 points. Keep playing the same way until you have exhausted your list of questions.

To get you started, I have given some review questions you could use for the answer of either the "Old Testament" or the "New Testament".

1. Does the story of Abraham sacrificing Isaac take place in the Old Testament or in the New Testament?" (Old)

2. Does the story of blind Bartimaeus being healed by Jesus take place in the Old Testament or in the New Testament?" (New)
