Book of Mormon Trivia – Alma 47

In addition to making movies and creating picture books, we play Book of Mormon Trivia to help our children become familiar with the stories in the Book of Mormon. We've been playing Book of Mormon Beanbag Toss and Book of Mormon Puzzler using these questions.

Have the children read the verse aloud from the scriptures. This will help them in their ability to read scriptures. Then have them answer the questions. They get game privileges for reading the verse and for answering questions. Help them understand the question and/or verse if they need help.

We usually do this before school with three of our children who are five, seven, and nine. This is Emma's (age 5) first week joining us for scripture game time.
