Book of Mormon Trivia - Alma 17

With preteen children, we want to help them get familiar with the stories in the Book of Mormon by doing a variety of activities. My children love to play games with me, so we're going to make scripture study into a game.

Book of Mormon Trivia is a fun way to read the scriptures. You can read these questions in order, or you can mix up the questions. Start by keeping the questions in order. Once the children know the story, you can mix up the questions and combine questions from different Book of Mormon chapters.

I included the scripture reference so they know the context of the question. When they see the answer is in Alma chapter 17, they should know this chapter's basic story line. If they don't know the answer to a question, have them look it up; then have them read the verse aloud. This will help them in their ability to read and comprehend the Book of Mormon. We want them to have fun and not stress because they don't know an answer. When they're ready for the challenge of knowing the answers by memory, we can incorporate that into the game.

You can play a game using these questions, or you can use questions your family creates. Next week I'll post a few different games you can play, or have fun creating your own game.  

Creating the questions and game might be interesting for one of your older children. It all depends on the child. Ideas that work for one child might not work for another child. That's okay. We are sharing a variety of ideas to help get you thinking of the many different ways you can study the scriptures.
