Truth* Duck Duck Goose Game
Our Sunday School class began with a conversation circle on the floor. We opened up discussing Truth and its meaning. We placed Jesus’ quote from John 8:32: “Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free,” in the center of the circle, written on a sheet of paper. The students read the quote and further discussed its meaning. We thought of many qualities of Truth and wrote them on post-it notes and placed them around Jesus’ quote. Then the students were asked to think of a Bible story where Truth was applied and reigned. After they thought quietly about their Bible story, we played "Truth* Duck Duck Goose."
Rules for Truth* Duck Duck Goose
Students sit in a circle around the Bible quote, “Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free,” and post-it notes with qualities of Truth.
Students think of a Bible story where Truth is applied.
One student begins the game by walking around the circle and tapping each person on the head saying Truth. The student walking around the circle will select one person by saying “Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
The person that was selected will stand and share their Bible story. Then it is his or her turn to walk around the circle, and choose the next person to share.
Once all the students have shared their Truth Bible story, the game is over. - Submitted by Lizzie Konecni
* Note that this game was played using the synonym Truth, but it could be used for other Bible Lessons. For example, this quote could be placed in the center of the circle:
"Divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need."
- Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health, page 494:10–11
Then students could think of qualities of Love and a Bible story where Love is applied. We call this a game, but we're also memorizing important verses from the Bible and Science and Health and reviewing our Bible stories, all while having fun!
