When preparing to do my chapel lesson for the week on Noah’s Ark and sin, I needed a game. The game needed to have the students up and active, at the same time, show them what sin could look like to them and how they can change the sinful activity to a good choice activity.
Mini-posters showing bad/good choices – explain and discuss each poster to students
Activity cards – 2 sets: blue set (team 1) /green set (team 2)
1. Divide class into 2 teams.
2.Put 2 desks (tables) on one side of the room for activity cards. One desk has bad choice cards (team 1 and team 2 cards) and the other good choice cards (team 1 and team 2 cards). And 2 desks on the other side (one desk for team 1 and the other desk for team 2)
3. Students line up in their group according to who goes first, etc.
4. Students are to run to desk with bad choice activity cards and pick their team color card and run back to their designated desk and place card.
5. When they have placed their card on their table they high five the next person in line.
6. That person runs to the good choice card table and picks a card and runs to their team’s table and sets down the card. If it matches the bad choice card they put it on top of the bad choice card. Then they high five the next person
7. Players alternate between picking a bad choice card to a good choice card.
8. Players want to match bad and good choice cards together.
9. The team who has matched all their activity cards is the winner!
Worksheet – students color the bad choices with a red crayon and good choices with a yellow crayon.
Journal writing – students choose a bad choice that they do and write how they can change that behavior with a good choice.
