The Future - The Revelation

In a noisy and rambunctious game I divided the room into 5 sections. I call out the name of a book or "section." The kids race to the section of the room with that book in it. I post the names of the books on the wall. Oh it is wild, but boy, do they learn the books of the Bible!

The first week I begin with the names of all 4 Gospels and just the names of the other 4 sections of the NT. Each week I add 2, 3, or 4 new books.
