Oh So Many Opposites

Scripture: Acts 9:1-31

Learning Objectives:

  • Students will learn Saul loved God, but didn’t understand what God really wanted Him to do.
  • Students will learn as soon as Saul learned what God really wanted him to do, he totally changed his life and converted people to Christianity.
  • Students will learn God wants us to do what He asks us to do.
  • Students will learn opposite word pairs.

Guiding Question: How can students learn and use opposites?

Materials: None needed

Procedure: Review the story of Ananias and Saul’s conversion with the students. Discuss how God often works through others to help share the story of Jesus. Tell students how important it is to follow God and look for how He gives us guidance and direction because we never know who He could lead us to. God has a plan for all of us including providing us with many opportunities to share about Jesus with others. 

Introduce the activity. Have the students play the opposite game. The students can play in pairs or larger groups for struggling students. “It” picks a word and the others try to be the first to say the opposite of that word.

Additional Questions: How can students practice recognizing opposites?

Supplemental Activity: Create a matching game with opposite pairs (big/small, short/tall, etc) and have the students play a matching game. When a student successfully matches opposites, the student can keep the match.
