Creation Top Twenty

Creation Top Twenty – Teach One Reach One

Scripture: Genesis 1-2

Learning Objectives:

  • Students will review the story of Creation
  • Students will discuss the various items God created
  • Students will discuss God’s continued role in creation today
  • Students will play a game that not only reminds them of God’s creation, but also gives them practice in spelling and encourages vocabulary building

Guiding Question: What are some of the items God created?

Materials:
$ Paper, pencils, pens
$$ Laminated game cards, erasable markers, letter tiles

Printable Game Board with Example

Possible Game Card Categories: Animals, plants, trees, flowers, birds, sea animals, bodies of water, land formations, insects, reptiles

Procedure: Before class, create game cards. Each card should have either a category or a letter. Create enough cards for each student to have four category cards and five letter tiles.

During class, discuss God’s Creation with students. Pass out game cards and direct students to draw four category cards and five letter tiles. After writing the categories and letters on their board, students should turn their board over. Set a timer for three minutes (adjust amount of time as needed) and start it. Students should complete their boards as quickly as possible. The student with the most correctly spelled answers wins that round. Play as many rounds as time allows.

Additional Questions:

  • How is God involved in the creation of items we call “man-made”?
  • How is God involved in the creation of items in nature today?

Supplemental Activity: Divide the students into teams of two or three. All teams receive the same categories and letters. Teams compete to see who can fill in the game board with properly spelled words.
