Word Association

One of the great opportunities you can use to widen the learning of this week’s lesson is to play a word association game with your students. Here’s how it might work: Place the name of Saul on a chalkboard. Ask the students to shout out words that come to mind when they think of the Old Testament Saul. Write their answers on the board around Saul’s name. Ask the students to do the same with David and Jonathan. This exercise is a great way to gauge the level of knowledge your students have about a given Bible character, thereby allowing you to focus more on information that will be new or previously unconsidered by them.
