Disciples Memory Game
Preparation: Go to sundayschoolsources.com and print out 2 of the following cards on cardstock (just the pictures of the disciples). Cut out and laminate or cover with clear contact paper to make them last.
21- John, 22- James, 23- Andrew, 24- Peter
38- Thaddaeus, 39- Philip, 40- Bartholomew, 41-James son of Alphaeus
42- Judas Iscariot, 43- Matthew, 44- Thomas, 45- Simon the Zealot
Directions: Cards are laid out in a grid face down, and players take turns flipping pairs of cards over. On each turn, the player will first turn one card over, then a second. If the two cards match, the player scores one point, the two cards are removed from the game, and the player gets another turn. If they do not match, the cards are turned back over.
The object is to match more pairs of cards than the opposing player. (One point is scored for each matched pair, and the player with the highest score after all cards have been matched wins.) When cards are turned over, it is important to remember where they are for when the matching card is turned up later in the game.

Introduce game: How well do you know about Holy Week? Let’s find out.
Play one of the following review games and use the questions below.
Introduce game: What crowed three times just like Jesus said it would? A rooster.
Pass the Rooster!
Directions- An egg timer is set for any time the teacher wishes. Have the students sit in a circle. The teacher then gives a student a rooster and asks them a Bible Question. The student must answer the question correctly. If they do not, the student must answer another question until they are correct. When the student is correct, the teacher says, “Pass the rooster!” and the student passes the rooster to the person on their right and that student must answer a Bible Question to be able to pass the rooster. Whoever is holding the rooster with the timer goes off is the rooster.
Need: one small ball (or two balled up pieces of paper), two chairs, one trashcan.
Directions: Put a trashcan against a wall. Divide the class into two teams. Have students line up in two teams behind a chair (to keep them from getting too close to basket). Ask the first person in Team #1 a question. If they are correct, they get to try to make a basket. If they make a basket, their team gets a point. If they do not get a basket, their team does not receive a point. After the first player has his turn, he then goes to the end of Team #1’s line. It is now Team #2’s turn. The team with the most points wins.
