Road to Emmaus Game
This game is free, however it is only to be used for classroom and personal use. It may not be published on any websites or other electronic media, or distributed in newsletters, bulletins, or any other form or sold for profit.
Road to Emmaus Game- Review Luke 24:13-35. Draw on the board a chart and have the players throw a suction toy at the board. Where ever it sticks, the team has to follow the directions. The team with the most points wins.
Directions- Have students read Luke 24:13-35 carefully. Review if necessary. Put Bibles aside. Put Questions Cards in a small basket. Draw on the board the chart shown. Divide the class into at least 3 teams. Write each team’s name on the board so you can keep score. Place the chair several feet from the board. Have a player from one team stand behind the chair and throw the suction cup ball at the board. Where ever it sticks, the team has to follow the directions. If the suction cup ball misses the chart or does not stick, their turn is forfeited. If the suction cup ball sticks on “Lose A Point” the team loses a point. If the suction cup ball sticks on “Take A Point” they may take a point from any team they choose. If the suction cup ball sticks on “?” the team player draws a Question Card from the basket and reads it out loud. The teacher then turns over the minute timer while the team ponders the question. If they answer the question correctly before the minute timer runs out, they receive a point and it is written on the board. If they are not correct, they do not receive a point. The next team takes their turn (each player on the team must take their turn throwing the suction cup ball) and so on. The game continues until all the Question Cards are gone. The team with the most points wins.
1. Students can use Bibles to help them answer the questions.
2. The next team may answer the question if the first team cannot. If they answer the question correctly in one minute, they receive the point and then it is their turn to throw the suction cup ball.
3. Using Bibles, the team will have to answer the question AND cite the verse number where the answer comes from. They will receive 2 points if they can do both. The team will receive one point if they can only answer one part of the question correctly.
Question Cards- (Use these or make your own.) Print Question Cards out on card stock. Cut out Question Cards. Laminate or cover with clear contact paper to make them last.
Questions & Answers- For the teacher to check answers.
