HOTSEAT is an extremely fun and engaging game for you and your students to play either when preparing for a test or simply wanting to do something fun yet based off of what you’ve been learning this year. The game involves teams, rapid fire questions, and tons of (structured) student movement (which the kids, of course, really appreciate). Hands down my students’ favorite review game!
Kings & Queens
Kings & Queens is an extremely fun game that’s perfect for reviewing for a test. The game involves a throne, a “Sword of Awesomeness”, kings/queens, lowly peasants, and of course, tons of helpful review time for your students!
“Touch Someone Who…”
“Great activity! The lesson plan and directions were spot on. We were unable to form a circle due to time constraints but the activity worked well with our seating arrangement. The follow-up processing questions were the perfect conclusion for this fun and uplifting activity. Thank you!”
– Mary Grinnell
This activity provides students with opportunities to share positive and uplifting comments with their classmates that they may never have had the courage (or even thought) to say aloud. This is truly a fun, heart-lifting, and smile-making activity that students always thoroughly enjoy.
Get to Know You Survey
This is a fun “get to know you” two-day lesson plan that can be used any time of the year (at the start of the year, when kids are starting to get distracted before Thanksgiving, Christmas, spring, or summer break, etc.).
Yay God! is a fun activity which gets kids thinking and talking about how they have seen and felt God in their lives. With some helpful prompts and instructions, this activity provides students with the guidance and encouragement needed to start seeing how God is active in their lives.
Where You At? / Where Ya Goin’?
One day after class two of my 8th grade students asked me a rather surprising question: “Mr. Aitchison… Is there some kind of a way that we could, y’know, as a class, go really DEEP with our faith?” These two activities grew out of the conversation that followed.
