This is one of the game shows I used to watch as a kid. I found a great idea online from another seminary teacher using the concept of this game to teach 3 Nephi 28. I usually have to take these online ideas and morph them to accomodate my class size and personalities. What we re-named "Seminary Student Squares" turned out to be a great way to learn this chapter. I have to admit, we're all pretty wiped out by the time Fridays roll around. This game was a welcome change from the norm.....
I set up one of our long seminary tables at the front of the room. In front of that, I set up 3 classroom chairs, and in front of that, I set up 3 little children's chairs. (I teach in the Primary room, so the little chairs are readily available.) I had 3 students sit on the table, 3 in the regular chairs, and 3 on the Primary chairs so they formed a slant downward facing the rest of the class. Those were our "celebrities" who would form our Tic-Tac-Toe grid. The other students were separated into two groups; "X's" and "O's". They worked in these two groups to be our "contestants".
I started class by having them all read 3 Nephi 28:2-9. When they were finished, we started Round 1. I had 9 "celebrities" move into the Tic-Tac-Toe grid, I handed them the list of 10 questions AND answers from the scripture block, and we started the game. I gave them the questions so they would be prepared for what I would ask, and I gave them the answers so they could think of an alternate answer just in case they wanted to fool the "contestants". The "X's" began by choosing a "celebrity" in the grid. I'd ask that person a question. He/she would answer the question with a true answer, or an answer they made up. The "contestant" would either AGREE or DISAGREE with their answer (based on their knowledge of the scripture block they just read), and we'd give the "celebrity" either an "X" or an "O" to hold based on whether their answer was right or not. This ended up being tons of fun, and in between questions, we were able to discuss details of the chapter.
We continued the game playing a total of 3 rounds, covering the entire chapter. We actually brought out quite a bit of lesson material about the twelve Nephite disciples/apostles, the three Nephites, and translated beings. This account is quite fascinating. We discussed the blessings which were given to these men, and what was so special about the desire the three Nephites had that they would be promised eternal life. We discussed the difference between tranfiguration and translation, and I discounted every strange and weird rumor/speculation they had heard about the three Nephites. Hahaha.
