How to Play

The objective of the game is to identify the animal you have been assigned by asking only yes or no questions.

For Small Groups
Have everyone sit in a circle.

Explain that you will be giving everyone an “Animals Who Am I?” card, but they are not allowed to look at their own cards. This is the animal they have been assigned.

Distribute the “Animals Who Am I?” cards, facing down.
Everyone must put the card on their foreheads such that everyone else (except themselves) can see their cards.
Provide headbands or sticky tape to hold the cards in place.
(Alternatively, write the Animals on Post-it notes)

One player starts by asking the group a yes or no question.
For example, “Do I have wings?” or “Can I live in the water?” or “Do I have 4 legs?”
The group replies and the turn passes to the next player.

The game ends when everyone can identify his/her animal.

You can play as many rounds as you like.

For Large Groups
Instead of sitting in a circle, everyone must move around the room to ask other players yes or no questions. After asking each question, players must look for a different person to ask the next question.

Genesis 1:26

Bible Lesson – Noah’s Ark

Discuss
1. Did you enjoy this activity? Why or why not?
2. Did you have difficulty figuring out your animal?
3. Do you like animals? What are some of your favorite animals?
4. Do you know any Bible passages about pairs of animals?

Read
Genesis 6:5-9:17
(This passage is rather long. Instead of reading directly from the Bible, you may want to tell the story of Noah’s Ark with the aid of a YouTube video, PowerPoint slides, puppets or even a children’s Bible.)

Discuss
5. Why did God ask Noah to build an ark?
6. Why did God decide to send a flood? (Genesis 6:5-8)
7. Why did Noah find favor in God’s eyes? (Genesis 6:8-9)

Say
In this story, we learned that God sent judgement on the earth because the people on the earth were evil. But God saved Noah and his family because Noah was righteous.
Even though God promised (Genesis 8:21) that he will never send a flood like this ever again, this Bible story is still relevant to us today.

Discuss
8. Does God notice when we sin? How does God feel when we sin?
9. Does God notice when we obey him? How does that make God feel?

Conclude
Our actions matter to God, and he notices. Our sins make God sad. It is important that we always honor and obey him in our hearts and in everything that we do.
