Games:

Introduce game: Did the people listen and do what Moses said? Do you think that is easy? Can you do that?


Moses Says

Need: Nothing

Directions: Played just like Simon Says. Moses says, “Hop on one foot.” Etc.



Introduce game: So you think you are good at following directions? Let’s find out.

Following Directions

Need: Bop It, Ballzerko, Simon, etc.

Directions: Divide the class into groups. Have one group play one game and the other plays another, etc. Students must do what the toy tells them to do. Change games after all students get a chance to play.



Introduce game: Moses led his people through the desert. Do you think they did what he told them to do? Do you think this was easy? Let’s find out.

Outrageous Desert Obstacle Course

Set up an obstacle course that the students must do the crab walk backwards through it. Have them crab walk around objects, go under the table, carry a ball on their stomach and put it into the trash can, etc. Demonstrate what you want the students to do.


Another version:

Introduce game: Do you think it was easy to walk in the desert? Let’s find out.

Supply list: one table, one chair

Set up your obstacle course as described in your instructions and have the children watch you walk through the obstacle course before they try it themselves. As you go through each stage, explain what it represents.

Say: First, you’ll hop on one foot because the sand is so hot. Next, you will crawl under a table to get away from the sun. Then you roll on the ground from exhaustion. Finally, you crawl to a chair to rest.

Have the children go through the obstacle course, resetting it for each child as needed.



Introduce game: What did the Israelites see day in and day out on the desert? Sand

Pass the Sand!

Divide the group into two teams and line them up. Have the first team players in line grab a handful of sand from a container. They must pass the sand to the next player, who passes it to the next player, and so on down the line. When the sand reaches the last player, she pours what's left of it onto a plate. The team with the most sand at the end of the relay wins the game. You may have to weigh the sand on a food scale to find out if it's close!
