Use the holidays

Anywhere you go these days, you are surrounded by Halloween items (and some Christmas, but that is just a tad too early for me!!). I picked this witch's cauldron up last year at Dollar General for 2 or 3 dollars. I am going to turn it into Jacob's pot of stew when he trades Esau the stew for Esau's birthright. I thought about making a pot of stew at home in my crockpot (still looking for a recipe, so if you have a good one, comment and leave it!!). I will bring the stew to class and
after the lesson, let the students taste it. With this pot, I will make a review game. What you will need:
vegetable cut outs
ladel (don't know if this will work, you may have to use your hands)
plastic bowls
On the vegetables, write questions and place the vegetables in the pot. You can play this game different ways.
1. Divide your class into as many teams as you want or use this as an individual game. Spoon out with your ladel or your hands "the stew" into the teams' bowls. See how many questions, each team can answer right off the bat. Give each correct answer 2 points. Then, let them look in their Bible for the other answers to the questions they did not know. Give them 1 point for each correct answer from this round. The team with the most points, wins the birthright!!
2. Give each child or team a bowl. Have each child come up to the pot and choose a vegetable. Let them try to answer that question. If they answer it, let them put it in their bowl. The team with the most vegetables in their bowl, wins.
