This game was originally designed for the Damascus road lesson but it’s so simple and easy to modify that you could use it almost any time.
Board games can be great, but board games can be boring. younger children especially like to move for their game, and many games rely on asking masses of questions of the children. However board games that make the children the pieces are much more popular. I’ve seen suggestions for painting sheets, made tarpaulins into giant twister variations, even seen inactive floors using screens and/or projectors. they are all fantastic, but also a huge amount of preparation and need storage.
This is a floor size board game, it only has 20 squares, it gets kids to move, there are no set questions, but, there is a place to add silly suggestions, it’s quick to prepare, simple to modify to your needs and it still ties into the teaching – Paul was on a journey, he had challenges to face.
Preparation / Instructions:
Print the PDF on card, some pages need to be multiplied!
find a die or make a spinner (last page of PDF template + skewer)
make sure you have a large flat space, and some time to lay out the game before they arrive
you amy also want sticky tack / velcro hook tape to attach the card securely.
