Journey Through Lent 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 It may not be published on any websites or other electronic media, or distributed in newsletters, bulletins, or any other form or sold for profit.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.




Here is a neat and easy way to review Lent using a Lenten Calendar. Just print out a Lenten Calendar below that is in color or black and white. Color the calendar if it is not already done.

catholicicing.com- Printable Lenten Calendar for Kids
This is my Printable Lenten Calendar for Kids. It’s free for everyone to print! This year, I’m offering it in black and white, in color, and also as a blank page so you can fill in any language! I have also updated the file to include Lenten calendars that readers have submitted in different languages.

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.

Children play musical chairs for a chance to discover how Jesus loves them. Have the children march around the chairs as you play the song “Jesus Loves Me”. Give the one who does not find a chair a crown to wear while taking a few moments to tell the other children why they believe Jesus loves them. This is for building up their self-esteem, in that they are not "losers" because they did not get a chair, but are special because of Jesus' love.

St. Valentine Game

Introduction to game: What do you know about St. Valentine and St. Valentine’s Day?

Materials- large die, egg timer, questions about St. Valentine and St. Valentine’s Day

Make a die out of a large juice carton girlguides.ca and put a ? mark on some (at least 3) of the sides of the die.

Directions- The objective of the game is to get the most points by answering questions about St. Valentine and St. Valentine’s Day. After studying and discussing this subject, divide the class into teams and have the students come up with questions. Set an egg timer for a specified time. Have a player roll the die on the floor in front of the class. If the die lands on a blank space, they do not answer a question. If the die lands on “?”, they are asked a question by the other player or team. If the player answers correctly, they receive a point (you can use tokens, write it on the board, etc.). If they are not correct, they do not receive a point. Players must collect as many points as they can. The game is over when the egg timer goes off. Whoever has the most points, wins. You can play this game individually or in teams. For an added challenge, you can also have “Lose 1 Point” and “Take 1 Point” on one or a couple of the sides of the die. When a player rolls “Lose 1 Point”, they must lose 1 point. If a player rolls “Take 1 Point”, they may take a point from any player they choose.





Sacrament of Matrimony (file folder game)- Answer different kinds of questions (multiple choice, True or False, Fill in the Blank, or Puzzles) about the Sacrament of Matrimony as you move around the board.



Introduction to game: For Catholics, the sacrament of marriage is a public sign that one gives oneself totally to this other person. It is also a public statement about God: The loving union of husband and wife speaks of family values and also God's values.

Catholic Balderdash 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 game are not my own and are from various internet sources.


Catholic Balderdash is based on the game Balderdash.


Catholic Balderdash is a great way to introduce new Catholic vocabulary words for your next lesson. Have prizes or Bible Bucks for first, second, and third place. If you have more than 10 students, have students break into small groups.


Catholic Balderdash

Materials Needed:

• Dry erase board or chalk board
• Catholic vocabulary words with definitions
• Small pieces of paper of the same size to write definitions on
• Pencil for each player (or team)


Preparation For Play:

Each person (or team) receives small pieces of paper to write definitions on.



How To Play:

1. The teacher is the Dasher. The Dasher starts the game by reading the word aloud and then writes it on the board.

2. The players write the word on their piece of paper. Each player (or team) then invents a definition of this word that they think will bluff the other players, and writes is down on their piece of paper. The player (or team) writes their name on the paper and hands it in.

3. While the players (or team) are creating their definitions, the Dasher copies the correct definition on a small piece of paper.

4. The Dasher then looks at all the definitions, makes sure they are presented clearly, arranges them, including the real one, in random order and reveals aloud each definition. (HINT: Do not reveal the true meaning by the manner you read the definitions).

5. The Dasher reads aloud all the definitions a second time. In extreme cases, a third reading may be necessary.

6. Moving clockwise from the Dasher, each player (or team) guesses which definition they think is correct. The Dasher writes their guess on the board by their name (or team).

7. After every player (or team) has guessed, the Dasher reveals the true meaning.

Scoring

• 1 point is given to each player (or team) for every vote or guess their phony definition receives.
• 2 points are awarded to each player (or team) who chooses the correct definition of the word.
• 3 points are awarded to each player (or team) who submits a definition which is similar or very close to the correct meaning.

8. Keep playing in the time allotted. Tally up the score and give out prizes.
