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.
