Sports Cones Bible Review Games

 

Sport Cones

Sports cones can be used in an endless variety of games and learning activities. The cones we used are soft and bendable so they can be used with any age group without having to worry about children getting hurt. They are also small enough for preschool children to pick up and carry around, yet big enough to play an endless variety of games with older children.

You can purchase them in all one color or buy a variety pack. Each type is useful in different games. We used Orange Sports Cones from PP Sports

Use Liquid Chalk Markers, Dry Erase Markers, or tape to label the cones for different types of games. Chalk markers work the best because they come in a variety of opaque colors that can be wiped off with a dry cloth.

Cone Ring Toss Bible Lesson Review Game

Cone Ring Toss Bible Lesson Review Game from www.daniellesplace.com

Preparation

1. Before class write up a bunch of questions with answers of either yes or no in a circle around the edge of paper plates. Cut out the center of the paper plates making a ring. Make at least one set of questions for every two to three students.

2. Write "Yes" on one sports cone and "No" on another sports cone with a liquid paint marker. Make at least one set of cones for every two to three students.

3. Place a piece of painter's tape across your room for a starting line. Place the sets of cones about four feet from the starting line.

How to Play:

1. In class break your children up into teams of two or three. Give each team a set of paper plate ring questions. On the word "go" the teams should read the questions on the paper plates, decide the answers and then try to get the paper plate ring on the cone with the corresponding answer. If the rings land on the ground, the children may pick up the rings, stand behind the line and try again and again until they get the rings on the cones. When a team gets all their rings on the two cones the game is over.

Count up the amount of rings that were correctly thrown onto the cones for each team. The team that has the most correct rings on the cones wins.

Discuss any wrong answers.

"Pass the Word" Sport Cone Bible Verse Review Game

"Pass the Word" sports cone Bible verse review game from www.daniellesplace.com

Preparation:

1. Before class write the words of the Bible verse on small objects that will fit inside the cones. You can use balls, cups, index cards, bean bags, etc. Write one word on each object.

How to Play:

1. In class have your children stand in a row and give each student a cone.

2. Place the object with the first word of the verse in the cone of the first player in line and tell him what the word is.

Have the player repeat the word out loud to the next player in line as he tries to drop the object into the players cone. That player should then do exactly the same thing to the next player in line. When the object gets to the end of the line, the player at the end of the line should bring it to the teacher at the front of the line and place the object in the teachers hand while reading the word on the object. The last play in line then becomes the first player in line and the teacher should give that player the next object saying the word on the object as the he places the object in the players cone. The teacher doesn't have to wait until the object gets to the end of the line. He or she can put more than one object into play so that all the players are passing objects during the game. Keep playing until the students know the verse.

If the object drops on the ground during play the player that passed the object should pick it up and try again until he is successful.

You can also make this a relay race by making two sets of objects and breaking your students up into teams. The team that finishes first and can say the entire verse without help wins.
