Life of Christ Board 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 It may not be published on any websites or other electronic media, or distributed in newsletters, bulletins, or any other form or sold for profit. Reproduction or retransmission of any materials, in whole or in part, in any manner, is not permitted. All graphics/images/clipart etc. used on this activity are not my own and are from various internet sources.




Timeline for game board taken from: mb-soft.com


*You can play this game individually or in teams.


Object: Collect tokens by moving around the game board and answering questions about the life of Christ. The player with the most tokens at the end of the game, wins.


Materials Needed:

Game Board
Game markers
1 die
150 Question Cards
Tokens

*Playing pieces can be coins, colored buttons, game pieces from other games, fish rocks for the bottom of aquariums, craft foam cut into shapes, glass rocks for vases, etc. You can paint small objects such as rocks, small plastic tops or caps, etc. You can also buy pawns at game stores.


How To Play:

Place 2 small baskets on the table to put question cards in. Put the question cards in one basket (the other basket will be for discards). Place your markers on the "Birth of Jesus” space. Each player throws a die (1) or the first players of both teams throws a die (1) to decide who starts the game. The player with the highest throw starts. Each player takes a turn by rolling the die (1) and moving that many spaces. The player on their right will draw a card and read the question out loud. On each card is a question about the life of Christ. If the player answers the question correctly, they receive a token. If they do not answer the question correctly, they do not receive a token and their turn is over. If a player rolls a 6 with one die or 6 with a combination of dice (2) they may take a token from any player they choose.


Optional Game Play:

• Use dice (2) to make travel through the board game faster.


How to Win:

The first player who travels through the entire game board and lands on the Ascension space (you do not have to roll the exact number) is asked a question. If an incorrect answer is given, the player remains on the Ascension space and will have another chance on their next turn. If a correct answer is given, the game ends and all the players count their tokens. The player with the most tokens wins the game.


Preparation:

Directions- Print out Directions.

Game Board- Print out Game Board, trim, assemble, and glue on a piece of cardboard. Laminate or cover with clear contact paper to make it last. (Page 1 starts with a picture of the birth of Jesus and connects with page 2 after the picture of Jesus talking with Nicodemus. Page two starts with a picture of Jesus talking to the woman at the well and connects with page 3 after the picture of the miracle involving the Gergesene demoniacs. Page three starts with the picture of the miracle of the woman with a hemorrhage and connects with page 4 after the picture of Zacchaeus in a tree. Page four starts with triumphal entry into Jerusalem and ends with the empty tomb.)

Tokens- Use these tokens or make your own. Print out several pages of Tokens on card stock. Cut out Tokens. Laminate or cover with clear contact paper to make them last.

Question Cards- Print out Question Cards. Use only the cards that reflect your student’s abilities. Laminate or cover with clear contact paper to make them last.



*Use the Question Cards that are provided or make your own. You can also make cards specific to what you have been learning in your classroom. You can even have the students make cards for the opposing team. There are 150 Question Cards posted for you to choose from. Note: Please take in consideration that I am just a Mom and I'm providing these question cards to the best of my abilities. I tried to make them as accurate as possible, but I know I probably made a few mistakes and it was not intentional.

Introduce game: What was rolled away from the tomb where Jesus laid?

Who’s Got The Stone?

Need: One small rock

Directions: One student is picked to be “It”. All the students (except "It") put both of their hands together and form a cup with just a little hole up on top. The teacher walks around and pretends to put the stone in someone's hand. One student will actually get the stone. The student who is “It” is then asked by the teacher, "Who's got the stone?". Whoever has the stone is "It". (Game is like “Button, Button, Who’s Got the Button?).


You Can’t Keep Jesus Down- Your children will discover that even thought people tried to keep Jesus in the grave, they couldn’t; just as Jesus said. (The Encyclopedia of Bible Games for Children’s Ministry, page 148).

Play continues until a team or player reaches “Last Supper”.







Holy Week File Folder Game- The objective of the game is to go through all the days of Holy Week by answering questions about each day. The player spins the spinner and follows the directions. If the player spins “Next Day” they move to the next day. The players must go to each and every day (even if they spin 2 and only need 1, they have to stop at the day). The player cannot pass a day until they answer a question about it. The questions are on a question sheet that is divided into the seven days of Holy Week. The teacher will ask a question from the list about the day that the player landed on. If they are correct, on their next turn they spin the spinner. If the player misses the question, on their next turn they do not spin the spinner, but they must take their turn and answer a question about that day of Holy Week before they can move on. The first person to move around the board and answer questions correctly on all 7 days of Holy Week, wins. Continue playing to find out who comes in second, third, fourth, etc. place.

zephyrhillblog.com- Printable Calendars for Lent

kellygillanjohnston.blogspot.com- Lenten Journey


Directions for game: You can play this game individually or in teams. The objective of the game is to get to Easter Sunday first by answering questions about Lent. Place 2 small baskets on the table to put question cards in. Put the question cards in one basket (the other basket will be for discards). Place your markers on "Ash Wednesday”. Each player throws a die (1) or the first players of both teams throw a die (1) to decide who starts the game. The player with the highest throw starts. The opponents make their moves by turns. To make a possible move you must answer a question (the other player on their right draws a card and reads you the question). On each card is a question about Lent. If you are correct, you roll the die. If you do not answer the question correctly, your turn is over. The players take turns answering questions correctly to throw the die and move from space to space according to the throw count. The first player to Easter Sunday is the winner.



*Use the Question Cards that are provided or make your own. You can also make cards specific to what you have been learning in your classroom. You can even have the students make cards for the opposing team. There are 100 Question Cards posted for you to choose from. Note: Please take in consideration that I am just a Mom and I'm providing these question cards to the best of my abilities. I tried to make them as accurate as possible, but I know I probably made a few mistakes and it was not intentional.

Questions that can be used for a worksheet:

If Christ is at work in our lives, transforming us from the inside out, how can we not keep from sharing that with others?

What’s the difference between merely evangelizing and making disciples?

What opportunities do you have as a student to make disciples right now?

What characteristics do disciple-makers have?

How will you commit to starting the process of making disciples today?

What was the mission Jesus gave his disciples?

What does it mean to make disciples?

Are there any better ways to spread the gospel than making disciples?

Why is baptism important?

What must we teach and how can we teach it?

What promise did Jesus give his disciples/apostles?

How do we, ourselves, follow these instructions?

What is included in “everything that I have commanded you”?

In v20, Jesus says “remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Does this statement apply to the individuals who were there, or more widely? Does it apply to us, do we think? Again, why?

How do the eleven respond to Jesus when they see him on the mountain?

What did Jesus mean when He said all authority had been given to Him? Who gave Him that authority?

Read Matthew 28:19–20. Then break down these verses into a list of things that Jesus told His disciples to do.
