There are 7 cards with the words to the Hail Mary on them. If 2 copies of the cards are printed, one could use them to play concentration. I also created a board to go with where the cards should be placed in sequence order. (Print the board on LEGAL size paper!!) There’s so many uses for the cards because they could just be used to recite the prayer as well.

Jane at The Learning Curve made some cards that match a Power Point slide presentation that she has been using.




Here are some I made long ago that you might like:

From Creation to Joseph Cards- Play Bible Timeline Game, Memory, Go Fish, or Sequencing with these cards.

Birth of Jesus to Ascension Cards- Play Bible Timeline Game, Memory, Go Fish, or Sequencing with these cards. The cards can also help students establish the content and order of the Matthew, Mark and Luke (synoptic) gospels. Example: Take the gospel of Mark since it's the shortest and ask the students to take the cards and put them in the order which Mark mentions them in his book.

Which came first? (file folder game)- When this question is asked, most people think of the chicken or the egg. Here is a game that wants to know which Bible story came first. In this game players are asked which story appeared first in the Bible as they make their way around the board. The first player to FINISH wins. (You can also use this game to review what happened in the correct order of a certain Bible story or several of your own choosing. Just write up questions about key events in the story and play the game.)

Act of Contrition Board Game



This game is free, however it is only to be used for classroom and personal use. It may not be published on any websites or other electronic media, or distributed in newsletters, bulletins, or any other form or sold for profit. Reproduction or retransmission of any materials, in whole or in part, in any manner, is not permitted.


Act of Contrition Board Game is based on Puluc a game played by the Kekchi (Qeqchi) Indians of Guatemala from boardgamesoftheworld.com





Act of Contrition Board Game: For 2 Players or 2 Teams

The idea is to answer questions about the Act of Contrition so players can roll the dice and move their pieces up and down the road attempting to capture their opponent’s pieces. The form of capture is unique because the captured piece is not immediately removed but instead is placed under the capturing piece. The capturing piece is placed on top of the captured piece to form a stack (if you capture an opponent’s piece, their playing piece is placed under yours). On his next turn the capturing player starts to move the stack of pieces back along the road towards his home position the number of spaces indicated by the throw count. When the capturing player reaches the home position the captured piece is removed from the board.



Needed:

Dice
5 red and 5 black checkerboard game pieces
Question Cards
Game Board



Set Up: This game can be played individually or in teams. Shuffle the deck and place it face down in a small basket near the game board. Put an empty basket nearby for the discards. Players put their 5 playing pieces at Home (picture shown above).


Rules: The board is a track made up of 9 spaces as shown above. Each player has five pieces, usually small stones or sticks using any shape or color to distinguish between players. The players sit opposite each other across the road and the home position for each team is to their left.

The first players of both teams throw the dice to decide who starts the game. The player with the highest throw starts.

The opponents make their moves by turns. To make a possible move you must answer a question (the other player draws a card and reads you the question). If you are correct you then you roll the dice. If you do not answer the question correctly, your turn is over. The players take turns to throw the dice and move one piece along the road from space to space according to the throw count. The players enter their pieces at opposite ends of the road from the home position and move in opposite directions (shown by the arrows in the picture above). A player may either move a piece or enter another piece onto the road. A player must not move a piece onto a space occupied by one of his own pieces.

When the piece has reached the other end of the road it is moved back to its home position again. When the piece reaches its home position it is available at a subsequent turn to be moved on another lap down the road. It is not necessary to throw an exact number to enter the home position.


Capture: If a playing piece lands on a space occupied by that of an opponent, the opponent’s piece is captured. The capturing piece is placed on top of the captured piece to form a stack (if you capture an opponent’s piece, their playing piece is placed under yours). On his next turn the capturing player starts to move the stack of pieces back along the road towards his home position the number of spaces indicated by the throw count. When the capturing player reaches the home position the captured piece is removed from the board.

If a playing piece lands on a stack consisting of a capturing piece and a captured piece, the stack is itself captured and now reverses back the road towards the home position of the capturing piece with the capturing piece on top. When this stack reaches the home position the pieces belonging to the capturing player are "liberated" and may be re-entered onto the track in later turns.

There may be any number of captures and re-captures. A stack may be captured by another stack.

The game ends when the winner has captured all their adversary’s pieces.



Directions- Print out Directions.

Game Board- Print out Game Board, assemble, trim, and glue on poster board. Laminate or cover with clear contact paper to make it last.

Game Cards- (Use these cards or make your own.) Print Game Cards out on card stock. Cut out Game Cards. Laminate or cover with clear contact paper to make them last. Use only the cards that reflect your student’s abilities.

*The Game Cards are in MS Word and are editable so you can change them any way you like and use which ever Act of Contrition you choose.


Game Pieces- Use 5 red and 5 black checkerboard pieces to play game.

Balloon Toss Game-

Denunciation of the Scribes and Pharisees
Matthew 23:1-12

Introduction: Blow up a balloon and tie it off. Hold it up in the air for the students to see. Say: Being prideful is a sin. Prideful is thinking you are more important than others. Do not let your head swell up with pride like this balloon. Sooner of later something will happen and you will fall (let the balloon fall to the floor). Remember what Jesus said, “Whoever exalts himself will be humbled; but whoever humbles himself will be exalted.” Matthew 23:12

Directions: Divide the class into pairs. Give each pair of students an inflated balloon that you have blown up and tied off. Have the students try to pat the balloon softly back and forth as many times as they can without it touching the ground. The students continue trying to increase the number of times they pat it back and forth. Younger students can sit on the floor and pat the balloon softly back and forth. Older students can use their heads, knees, feet, etc. instead of their hands to pat the balloon back and forth.


The Catholic Toolbox- Pride File Folder Game: Land on a space that says PRIDE and identify whether the situation is about pride or being humble. Land on a Peacock picture you tell about a time you were full of pride. Land on a Humble Pie picture you must tell about a time you were humble.
