Moses is one of the most well-known characters in the Bible; he played a very important role in the lives of the Israelites. There are a number of ways to reinforce lessons about his life through Sunday school games. Choose games that are based on the age and abilities of the people in the group. Also make sure that the games you choose are appropriate for the space provided.

Older children, and those who are more confident readers, can play "Erase-a-Word." Write a scripture verse about Moses on a dry erase board. Have the children repeat the verse aloud. Ask for a volunteer to read the verse again. Allow the child to erase one word of his choosing from the verse. Call on another child to read the verse; he must include the missing word. That child can then erase another word. Continue calling on each child in turn, having him recite the full verse and erase a word. This will help support learning the verse for that day.
After a lesson on Moses, divide the class up into teams and play trivia games. Craft questions from the lesson that you have just taught. For example, if you have taught about Moses leading the people across the desert and parting the Red Sea, you could ask questions like "What does the Bible say the Israelites followed through the desert?" or "How many miles across the Red Sea did the Israelites travel?" Have a mixture of easy and more difficult questions so everyone can play; give a prize to the winning team.
If you have the space to play an active game, divide the class into two teams and play a variation of the game "tag" that has a theme centred around a story of Moses. For example, you can divide the team up into "Israelites" and "Egyptians" and have the "Egyptians" chase and tag the "Israelites." Once an Israelite has been tagged, he becomes an Egyptian and has to tag an Israelite.
Have the children role-play a story you have just taught about Moses. Choose a Moses and the supporting characters in the story and designate some children to be Israelites. Guide the kids as appropriate to help prompt them through the story. Pause as necessary to provide comments and ask questions to help support the lesson. If you are not able to include all the kids at one time, have some role-play the first part of the story and then choose a new group to act out the next part.
