Are you smarter than the Primary Children?
If you’ve ever watched the TV show “are you smarter than a 5th grader” then you should have an idea how to play it in Primary. You can have a teacher play opposite a child, or you can have a couple of children play against each other. Please be very sensitive to the competition factor here. I personally am not going to even use points; there will be no winner or loser. I’ve played games before when we have tallied the total points as a group just to see how high of a number we can reach.
We played this in FHE and used white boards to write the answers on. They loved it! You can adjust the game to suit the needs of your Primary, of course.
Use your imagination and have fun with it!
I don’t know who to give the credit to for making this up. I don’t want to take the credit, of course. So if anyone know who and where this came from please let me know!
Thanks Liz (Thanks to Lisa C for passing it on to me)
