David and Goliath: The Bigger They Are The Harder They Fall 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 It may not be published on any websites or other electronic media, or distributed in newsletters, bulletins, or any other form or sold for profit.
The Bigger They Are The Harder They Fall Game: Players are asked questions about David & Goliath and if they answer correctly they may throw a suction ball toy at Goliath. Be the first player to hit Goliath in the forehead and win the game.
Need: Chalkboard or Dry Erase Board, chalk or dry erase board marker, suction ball toy, questions
Directions: Draw a simple picture of a large giant on the board (a stick figure or just a face will do). Make a large X on Goliath’s forehead. Place a chair at least 8 feet (distance is according to student’s abilities) in front of the Goliath picture on the board. Divide the students into teams and have them stand in a line behind one another. Determine which team goes first. Ask the first person in line in team #1 a question about David & Goliath. If the player is correct, they may stand behind the chair and throw a suction ball toy at Goliath. If the suction ball toy hits Goliath on the X on his forehead and sticks, that team wins. If the suction ball toy does not, play continues and the next team is asked a question. The first team that hits Goliath in the forehead with the suction ball toy and sticks wins the game.
