Come Follow Me February: Why do the choices I make matter? Game

This lesson help goes with the "Come Follow Me" lesson for February's "Why do the choices I make matter?"  I made a game using the resource materials given in the lesson outline.  I divided my class up into teams.  Spaces had questions from scriptures, videos, Strength of Youth: Agency & Accountability, or True to the Faith's Agency.

I made a game on some white butcher paper I had.  I traced a Tupperware to make the spaces. I  used a circle punch to punch out different color construction paper for the pieces.  I had a foam dice.  And then this picture of Christ from the Gospel Art Kit.

To make:
Click to enlarge the photos so you can see what I wrote in the spaces.  I just wrote part of scriptures or quotes from Strength of Youth: Agency & Accountability or True the the Faith: Agency.  I would let them look up the scripture.  Or they could use a For the Strength of Youth or True to the Faith printouts/books.

For the videos I used these 2 videos: "Leave the Party" and "A Choice Generation (highlight)"

The lesson outline suggest this one: No Regrets about a boy choosing btwn seminary and surfing.  You could use that video instead of the ones I used.  Just make up questions to go in those spaces.

If the students landed on a "video" space we would watch the video and they would have to answer the question.  The "Leave the Party" one is longer.  So, if  they landed on another question about that movie and we already watched it they could remember the detail.

Doesn't matter which path they took.  It was their agency or choice. :)

Don't mind my 2 yr. old's artwork. :)

 What do I do with the picture?
I had it on the side of the chalkboard with the word "Repent" by it.  If the team got the question wrong I sent them to "repent".  :)  In other words they would lose a turn but start back where they were on the game.

Just have categories: Videos, Scriptures, Strength of Youth, True to the Faith, Make a Choice
Then, using the resources have questions from each of these categories on Agency.  "Make a Choice" category you can come up with real life circumstances where they have to make a choice.
