Acts 21-24 Time Line Word Strips

Last week we were doing housekeeping things during class and did not get to cover the stories that students were reading in as much depth as I would prefer.  I used this method I named Silent Time Line Sorting Game to quickly cover 4 chapters students had read before class, as an introduction to the next chapters in Acts.

This was a fun, useful game, and it was QUIET!  I find myself so relieved when we are able to play a game quietly.  Phew.  Those kids can get overwhelming.

Book of Mormon Review Quiz 1: Introduction to Enos

I used this review quiz to help students remember some of the things we've learned since the beginning of the year and so we can have a little fun during March Madness.  There are 20 questions dealing with the Title Page to the Book of Mormon plus others.  Some of these might not help you because it's stuff we talked about in class, not things that were necessarily in the manual. I've put references or quotes to go along with the answers to help stimulate discussion or to put any questions to rest.

Bucket Game

Everyone stands in a circle (alternate boy/girl if possible). Everyone holds hands. There is a bucket or a large trash can in the center (just short enough to jump over if needed). Everyone can try to pull each other so that someone either touches the trash can (which gets them out) or get two people to let go of their grip (both go out).

We had a Daddy/Daughter date night for our Young Women. We started with dinner, ours was pizza and rootbeer floats. Then we played Know Your Partner (as some of our young women don't have a dad, we borrowed Uncles and Grandfathers). Split the fathers and daughters and while fathers were making and enjoying their own rootbeer float, we asked questions of the daughters:

1. What is your dad's favorite passtime?

2. What is your dad's favorite food?

3. What kind of music does your dad listen to?

4. What is your dad's favorite color?

5. What is your dad's favorite season?

I Believe in Having a Happy Heart

It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord (Ps. 92:1).

When you do something kind for someone, do you like to be told thank you? How does it make you feel?

Heavenly Father and Jesus have given you many blessings for which you can be thankful. Being thankful means that you appreciate your blessings and the kind things other people do for you. When you are thankful, your heart is happy!

Itty Bitty Mormon City Scavenger Hunt Game

Dawne A. says:

"I am attaching an activity that we did when I was in the Young Women's presidency. It is for Salt Lake City use, but perhaps it can inspire other types of this activity in different cities.

"It is 'Itty Bitty Mormon City' and was inspired by the Itty Bitty City that the Salt Lake Tribune puts on periodically. I got the idea from someone else in our stake but the pictures they had were very old and copied so many times that it was too difficult to read or see clearly. We ha a little family outing and made our own new version with digital pictures.

The LDS culture has always had a tie to JELLO. So we decided to laugh and have a JELLO Festival. This is a great activity if you do not have a huge budget. We had a JELLO collection box in the foyer for everyone to donate old food storage. We then started planning the JELLO Festival we had:

Jello taste-testing: We made ballots and gave prizes who could name the different JELLO flavors

Jiggler Toss: This was great for the youth, we ran it like an Egg-toss but with JELLO

JELLO art: Great for the primary kids. We gave each child a paper plate and little bowls of watered Jello to paint with.

JELLO Mold competition: Many members brought a Jello mold and we voted on the best one.

This game was submitted by Kristy T. She says:

I facilitate a lot of meetings at work, so I've leveraged some fun icebreakers in different church settings with great results. I made this as an icebreaker for our RS Birthday Dinner, and the sisters really loved it. In fact, they didn't want to stop playing after we had our first winner, so we allowed two additional bingo winners and one "black out" winner.

The way it works is you pass out one to every sister. It's a great thing to do at the beginning while you're waiting for everyone to arrive - it gets people mingling.

Scripture Mastery Mix it Up

So today for scripture mastery, I passed out a sheet of 25 picture representations for each of the 25 scripture mastery scriptures. I gave the students five minutes to write out all of the references they could figure out for each picture representation.

For the second set of five minutes I let them use their scriptures to fill in any blanks they'd not been able to figure out by memory alone. We will be using this sheet for them off and on now throughout the rest of the year, along with the other activities we will be doing.

I would love to show you the sheet of pictures, but I didn't draw them myself and do not know who originally created the sheet. Thus, I am unable to post it here.

Scripture Mastery Muffin Cup Game

Following is Seminary Mom's scripture mastery game idea:

Preparation

1. I cut out circles of paper using the base of a small glass for tracing a well-rounded circle (not that a perfect circle really matters).

2. I wrote the historical setting on each individual circle for twelve of the scripture masteries I wanted to focus on for the day. (I found the historical setting on the front of the scripture mastery cards given the students. On another day, I might write the doctrinal teaching or missionary application, etc.)

3. I placed the circles in the muffin tin with the writing all "face up". (As we played the game, we turned over the papers "face down" once that scripture had been done.)

(Probably obvious, but I prepared all this before class :0)

Scripture Memory - The 8 Best Game

Today we played a memory game. I had previously selected 8 scripture mastery scriptures that I felt needed review. Drawing a big sixteen-square table, I then mixed up scripture references and key words all over the board. Then I covered them with colorful paper.

Then after opening exercises, devotional, etc., I divided the class into two teams. They each had their scriptures in hand. Taking turns, a student from team A would select two squares to remove to see if they had found the matching keyword to the matching reference (to determine which was team A and B, I simply thought of a number between 1 and 20 and let each team guess a number. I try very hard to not show favoritism).

Announce to the class that we're playing a game called, "Scripture, Scripture, Who Has the Scripture?" Someone has hidden essential clues to eternal life and we are the detectives, finding those clues.

At the end of the black footprints, there is one gold key taped to the board.

To get started I distributed in little baggies nine puzzle pieces with pre-written scripture references (found in the table entitled, "Alma Teaches Corianton about the Resurrection" on page 180 in the teacher's manual).

But then have a series of at least 20 "commandments", like writing their name on the paper, standing and twirling in a circle, answering a math problem in the corner of the page, etc. THEN have as the final direction on the page (number 20 or so), "Do none of the above."

Young Women Value Quest

In this "quest for value" the young women will be divided into two teams with at least one leader each. They will play 7 games relating to 7 of the YW values and, at the end, should emerge with 8 value-colored flags. The way to win is to complete all of the games and get all of the flags before Mutual ends. And of course, they should have fun!

Materials: (Just a quick overview)
-16 flags, 2 for each value color (flags could be cut and sewn, or just scraps of fabric or ribbon)
-*Might want to bring a couple big T-shirts for Inspection
-a set of scriptures
-10 or so wooden blocks (at least enough for every team member to get one)
-2 grocery bags filled with assorted food stuffs
-1 bin of small children's toys
-5 fold-up chairs (the church ones work great)
