F.H.E. Friday {Temple Quiz Game} +a quick reusable game board

...A lesson of Friday to teach on Monday...
 **scroll down for temple trivia categories and questions**

We love a good quiz game {aka 'Jeopardy'} for family home evening.  Not only is it fun, it's an easy way to learn.  After realizing this was going to be in our permanent  F.H.E. rotation, I decided to make a reusable game board.  Here's how to make your own....

You will need:
  • 1 poster board
  • 25 flat fold 5x8-inch brown paper bags, cut 2 1/2 inches from the bottom to create a 2 1/2 x 5-inch pocket (bags like this)
  • decorative paper
  • glue
  • clear packing tape (optional)
  • 30 3x5-inch index cards

1. Arrange your cut paper bag "pockets" on your poster board in five columns of five pockets.  Then, glue each onto the poster board.
2. Decorate as desired.  I then "laminated" mine with packing tape for durability, which is optional, just be sure to not tape over your pocket openings.
3. Reserve 5 index cards for your categories, the rest write the score along the top of the card, the question near the bottom.  Then slip one into each pocket.  Write out your categories and attach to the top of the poster board with paper clips, clothes pins or tape.

**We like to have a different noise maker for each child to "buzz in" with.  Some examples: baby rattles, toy instruments, a small plastic container filled with rice, dried beans, or pasta...just make sure they make different sounds so you can tell who is buzzing in.**

**Make up rules that work for your family.  We follow the classic "jeopardy" rules, except we don't deduct points.**

**This is great for almost any topic. We've done manners & Christmas as themes, and also played just random categories.  Don't feel like you have to always use all five category spaces, it can take some time to play this game.**

Now onto some categories & questions for you {with a 'temple' theme}

1. NAME THAT TEMPLE...this category is easy, just choose 5 temple pictures {find printable images here} to be identified.

2. NAME THAT TUNE...either have someone play a few notes on the piano, hum or play a short clip {see link with each song} to identify the song, then sing the song together.
  • I Love To See The Temple (cs. 95)
  • Families Can Be Together Forever (cs. 188)
  • High On The Mountain Top (h. 5)
  • How Beautiful Thy Temples, Lord (h. 288)
  • Truth From Elijah (cs. 90)

  • The first temple completed after the restoration was dedicated on March 27, 1836, name that temple. {Kirkland, OH} 
  • At what age can we first attend the temple and what ordinances can we perform starting at that age? {12, baptisms for the dead, confirmation}
  • In the temple we can preform ordinances for ourselves and for our relatives that have died.  Name these ordinances. {Baptism, Confirmation, Endowment, Sealing}
  • How many temples are in operation today? {142, this will change, check here for updates}
  • We do this work before attending the temple to find names of ancestors that need work completed. {genealogy, family history}

4.  SCRIPTURE CHASE...the first to find the scripture earns the points & reads it aloud.

  • Doctrine and Covenants 97:15-16
  • Doctrine and Covenants 109:13-16

  • I will remember my baptismal _________ and listen to the Holy Ghost. {covenant}
  • I will choose the right.  I know I can _______ when I make a mistake. {repent}
