Items Needed: None
Directions: Divide drillers into two teams. Next, divide each team in half. Send 1st half of both teams to the opposite side of the room. Each half of the teams stands in lines and faces the rest of their team. Divide the verse into parts depending on the number of children. Example KJV:
- Part 1 – Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying,
- Part 2 – Whom shall I send,
- Part 3 – and who will go for us?
- Part 4 – Then I said, Here am I;
- Part 5 – send me.
- Part 6 – Isaiah 6:8
- Begin relay by having driller #1 of each ream run across the room toward the other part of their team saying part 1 of verse, and tag driller. The tagged driller on each team then runs across the room to the opposite side while saying part 2 of the verse. They will tag the next driller in line. Continue until the verse is completed. When the team has finished the relay, the halves of each team will have traded sides of the room and the verse will be complete.
