I've seen an idea for Jeopardy around on many sites. I changed the name so it sounded cool. I was just waiting for the right time to do this, and Program Review week seemed like a good time. I tend to use this week to throw in a few songs that we typically don't get to sing for variety.
4 category title strips (Program Songs, Wiggle Wiggle Wiggle (movement songs), Blast from the Past (last year program songs), Our Savior (any song with Jesus in it).)
3 "Answers" for every category (Example: If the category is "Program Songs" one of the answers could be "In this verse Father said He needed someone who had enough love". The question the child would say is "What is 'I Lived in Heaven' -second verse".***obviously this particular question would be for the senior primary. Believe it or not, my Sr. Primary kids would find this rather easy. It would be wise to make a separate set of answer cards for Jr. primary so the its more on their level). Remember to put numbers on the back of the answer cards such as 100, 500, 1000.
*Due to the fact that I don't have all my answer/question cards worked out yet, I'm not going to post it here. However, if you would like a copy of what I am going to do, just leave a comment with your email address and I'll send it too you as soon as I have it all done.
Before Primary, set up the Jeopardy board (If anyone needs instructions for this let me know). Call up a child, allow them to pick a category and a number. Tell them the answer, have them respond in question form (this will be difficult for the little ones so don't be too tight on the jeopardy rule thing) and then sing the corresponding song.
