Old Testament Family Feud

Debbie Olson, compiler of this family feud data, gave me a copy of this when she subbed in my Seminary class this week. The kids loved it! Debbie compiled answers from over 400 Seminary students for 40 questions. There are two (one that uses keywords for scripture mastery and another about then-current leaders) that are probably not usable, but there are enough questions here for two or three full days…

Old Testament Walk-Through

I was given a copy of the Old Testament Walk Through handout several months back by a friend for use in my Seminary class. I have no idea how to do this, but I think that it’s a method of learning the history of the Bible with hand motions and little rhymes. Old Testament Walk Through was prepared for the CES Teaching Fair on the Old Testament, 13-15 August 1991,…

Old Testament Units of Measurement Handouts

These files are from the Old Testament manual for Institute. The original files were, unfortunately, filled with a weird pinky-orange background rendering them nearly impossible to photocopy and very difficult to read. I have taken the liberty of converting them to black and white and enlarging the text for readability. Now they are perfect for use in your classes when teaching about the measurements used in the Old Testament. The…

Levite Tabernacle Offerings Handout

Okay — the lesson for Leviticus 1 seemed pretty boring. Even really boring. And I just didn’t want to cover all that blood and such in class because I have a tendency to faint, so instead, I made this handout based on the chart in the Institute Manual pps 162-3 and the 5 points in the Seminary lesson manual. To use this, each student will need one handout (Tabernacle Offering.pdf)…

Old Testament Coinage

This handout shows the differences between the coinage and weights used during Old Testament times, including gerah, shekel, and talent. The original file from the OT Institute manual had a pink-ish background making it nearly impossible to photocopy. I removed the background and created this superior version. The file is still Copyright 2011, Intellectual Reserve. Used by permisison.

Old Testament Who Wants to Be A Millionaire – Genesis to 1 Samuel

A schoolteacher friend made us a game based on the television show, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire using Book of Mormon personalities. I altered it to use people from the Old Testament from Genesis to 1 Samuel as a review game for the kids in my class. This game takes about 10-15 minutes total to play, so I used it as part of a 3-way centers rotation between a…

Jenny’s Old Testament Scripture Mastery Flash Cards – License Plate Style

I created these license plate scripture mastery memorization aids today in preparation for my seminary class next year. They are Old Testament scriptures. I’ve included the files as printable PDFs and as JPGs so you can use them how ever you wish. The two files with the names that begin “licenseplate….” have the license tags with and without the scripture reference. They are created to be one per page so…

Old Testament Magic Squares – Handout

Old Testament Magic Squares 2015

The original Magic Squares document by Janice Lee Griffith Tate is available at the old http://si.lds.org/ in the CES Conferences Section under Old Testament. Here’s a link: http://www.ldsces.org/old-testament/conference/ Problem is, the motions that go with the magic square are not described in the handout. I have a copy of one that a friend gave me, and I have created this handout that includes text to describe the actions. You should…

Scripture Journal glue ins – Agency, Judgment, Suffering in Mortal Life

Here are the glue-ins I’m using for teaching the Plan of Salvation for Old Testament. Agency: The Greatest Decision We want our children and their children to know that the choice of life is not between fame and obscurity, nor is the choice between wealth and poverty. The choice is between good and evil, and that is a very different matter indeed. …Our lives are made up of thousands of…

Old Testament Mad Gab (Scripture Mastery) Game submitted by www.LeannaProsser.com

The object of the game is very simple. Each card has a set of unrelated words. When you read them aloud, they sound like familiar phrases, names, places . For example “eye knome eye read dimmer leaves” Now say it a few times and take a good guess. The answer is “I know my Redeemer lives”. Wasn’t that fun!? The rules: Divide class into two teams. There are lots of…
