Get to The End of the Line (Review Game)
Introduce game- When you are in a line, where is the worse place to be? Let’s find out.
Have a list of review questions from past Bible stories or lessons. Line up all the students against the wall. Ask each student one question. If they answer incorrectly, they sit down at their seat. If they are correct, you say, “Get to the End of the Line” and they move and stand at the end of the line. Ask the next student in the line a question and the game continues. The last student standing is the winner.
Limbo- The student that can go the lowest wins!
