Faith In God Jeopardy... Articles Of Faith

I was just released from one of my Church Callings. Faith In God/Activity Days Leader. It has been bitter sweet. With baby coming and with our crazy home schedule it just wasn't working out. But I wanted to share my last activity with you! It was one of the twice a year Faith In God Activity.

We played Articles Of Faith Jeopardy! I didn't manage to take any pictures that night... go figure... but I reset up the layout on my living room floor so I could share it with you. On the top I simply wrote, Articles Of Faith Jeopardy. Then under that there were 7 categories. From left to right they were 1)True or False, 2)the Article in Picture, 3)Fill in the Blanks, 4) Define a Word, 5)Unscramble the Article, 6)General Questions, and 7)Name that Number.

Underneath the 7 categories were 7 of the same color of paper. I numbered them from 100 to 700 in 100 increments.

On the back of the numbered papers were the questions.

Let's start with the first column. True Or False. On the back of:
100 is Everyone Should Be LDS And Worship As We Do

And now for the rules. I separated all of the kids in to two separate groups. Try to make them as even as possible age and maturity wise. Then I explained to them how were going to play. I set two chairs in the center of the room in the back, the team mates sat on either side of these chairs. The person representing the team sat in the chair. (We traded of people each questions) Then in the front of the room on a table we sat a buzzer. The first team got to pick the question. I then read what was on the back. The two teams could talk and tell the person representing them what the answer was. That person would then run to the front and hit the buzzer. The first team to hit the buzzer got to go. If they answered correctly they received the points and chose the next question. If they got it wrong, the question went to the other team. If that team got it right, they got the points. If they got it wrong, we dropped the points to half and the teams could use their scriptures to find the answer. The first team to hit the buzzer could answer. If no one got it this round we dropped the question.

It is important to explain to everyone that once the person representing the team left their chair to hit the buzzer the team could no longer help them. So it was important they knew the answer before they took of running. Because if they got it wrong, they got negative points and the other team had a chance to steal them.

As far as the Unscramble column goes, the two people representing both of the teams came up and I handed them the bags. They ran back to their teams and unscrambled the article and then ran back up to hit the buzzer. I then went and checked to see if it was correct.

And that was that. If I'm missing anything please let me know so I can answer your questions!!!
