I am teaching 5th graders about the trinity tonight and needed something extra to add as an activity. This is perfect! Thank you so much. I was a little nervous as I'm filling in for my husband who usually teaches, but I'm excited to show this to the kids tonight!

You are my new BFF!! I'm doing a presentation on The Holy Spirit on Wednesday to middle schoolers and everything I have/have found is for the fruits and gifts I was about to give up and found this activity from catholic icing!

My mom suggested I make it a "Human boardgame" since we use the gym. We'll see how it goes.

The Catholic Couponer-
I just got back from being out of town and this is the first chance that I had to write back. I am so glad that the game went well with your class. We would love to see what you did on your blog! I would love to link to yours so everyone could see. :)

I know this is an old thread, but I had to share with you. I created this game on a large scale and use it as a way in which to have a human board game. I divide the class into teams, depending on class size. They elect one person as the "board piece" who goes around the board. They can consult with their team, but the "piece" is the one who gives the final answer. Thanks for the idea!
