This game was organized to complement the “Books of Law” lessons created by Of Life and Lessons.
The pieces are highly flexible. They be used during the lesson as well as after the lesson for review. First of all, as you teach, you can use the game pieces as a visual aid for the Bible stories that you tell your class. Then, you can review by testing if the children can sort the pictures by their corresponding books. You can also staple the pockets together and pin them to a bulletin board for a more fast-paced, relay-style game.
These review games have become a staple in many of my Sunday School classes, as they can for yours. Children learn best when they can interact with the lesson in an enjoyable way. Visual learners will appreciate the picture that corresponds with the story, and tactile learners will enjoy physically sorting the events into each book. I have had great results with this review style, and I hope you will too!
