Heads Up

I just had a great idea for a SM game! My students love playing a game on their phones called “Heads Up”. I just figured out that you can create customisable decks, so I created a deck with the SM references on them. It tests SM both ways – one student (or more) needs to be able to describe the SM from the reference, while the other, holding the phone to their head, needs to be able to guess the reference from the description.
Great idea! Love this game!
I can’t wait to surprise my students with it tomorrow!
So where do you find yours or do we have to do all ourselves! ?

Cool—-can you provide technical assisstance

We LOVE that game. I never even thought about making my own SM deck! Thanks :)

NICE!!!!!!! Great idea, thanks for the tip.
Uhh, little miss tech challenged here…is it an app for your phone?

Yes!! I love this game and have it. Can’t wait to do this!
Just buy the phone app called “Heads Up”, then get the in-app purchase to design your own deck. Once you have that it is really easy, choose the ‘design your own deck’, type in the SM references in at a time, choose a picture for your deck if you like, and you’re done! It cost me 79p to buy the app and 79p for the in-app purchase – UK (I believe it is 99c each USA)

How fun! Thanks for the idea!
I don’t love to purchase apps, but my kids just may “wake up” for this one! Buying And making! Thanks!!? : )
I LOVE this idea!
Thank you for sharing this!!
ha! I have 2 kids out of 25 in the class with smart phones. some of my kids have no phone & no computer.

Nanette Rasband Hilton, you only need it on your own phone to use in class. One phone with the game set up on it will work for the whole group.

i love this idea but i cannot find how to buy the make-it-yourself part. please help
Kathleen Stancliffe, open the app and scroll down. In the section titled “More Decks” you will find one called “Build Your Own Deck.” When you click on it, it will ask you for your apple ID/password.
thanks Jeanne Gilmore Merrell, but there is not one titled that – i guess my problem may be i don’t have an iphone? i downloaded the app and it gave me 35 games but nothing anywhere says “build your own deck” ;(
We’ve played something similar – not an app but a real game called Hedbandz – get a partner and put a SM card up on your forehead and ask questions til you guess which one it is. Fun and easy!

Thanks RaNae Shoaf

Nannette, you’re very fortunate. All 30 of my students have smart phones. We had to ban electronic devices from seminary because of constant texting and game playing.

@ Jim yes, my kids loose ‘breakfast points’ for the whole class if they have their phones out during class–peer pressure to keep the few who are addicted to their phones focused. I don’t allow any electronics in class–only printed scriptures.

Turkey Tail Game Report

By Elaine Henson Elaine Henson: Thanks for the Turkey Tail Feather SM Game idea! My kids loved it, it became a bit of a race, all of them charging down the corridor to find the right feather first. They have all got so good at their Scripture Masteries! And I had fun creating my cute Turkey ;) It is hard thinking of new things to do to keep SM interesting…

Halloween Scripture Mastery

By [email protected] (Pam Mueller) This was a super fun activity, needed more time, but well worth doing for sure. Fellow seminary teachers were sharing scripture mastery tombstone activities, so I tried it this year. I printed off the tombstones, taped to black paper, used glow in the dark paint to number each one, then hid them around the gym. using flashlights, they wandered around until they spotted a tombstone some…

Word Pictures for D&C Scripture Masteries

To help your students memorize, you have probably already used fill in the blanks, and first letters of each word. Brother James Fullmer share with me how word images can help your students in a similar manner. Rather than me explain it, open and save the two attachments below. The one shows what it is with the words, and the other has the words removed. Just one more way to…

Book of Mormon Scripture Mastery Sorting Game

The Book of Mormon scripture mastery sorting game has a list of the new scripture mastery passages for 2013 with either a quote from or the entire passage of a scripture mastery passage.  Students match passages with the scripture reference. Simply cut along the dotted lines and match scripture mastery key phrases with each reference. In my class we only cut out the keyphrases, leaving the scripture references as one list…

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…
