Everyone loves a great onstage trivia game. As long as the questions are interesting or the answers are funny, most students will stay engaged.

Beat the Volunteer raises the bar on the average screen-based trivia game by adding a fun consequence for a volunteer (or two) when he or she answers incorrectly! Here’s how it works:

Bring one of your beloved volunteers onto the stage and have him/her bring two students along. Have your volunteer take a seat in a chair or on a stool in the center of the stage and have the students stand on either side of the volunteer. Hand each of the students a pool noodle.

Ask the volunteer to give an answer to the first question. If he/she answers incorrectly, the students get the chance to “beat the volunteer” with the pool noodles for 5 seconds (or whatever you feel is an appropriate amount of time). Then go on to the next question.

You can change it up by bringing up 2 or 3 volunteers and have them take turns answering the question or have them all answer and only those who get the question wrong get the 5-second beating.

May want to swap the pool noodles out for something that says “Thanksgiving” like a stuffed turkey!

There are plenty of people who are grateful that you do what you do. Your students are, their families are, and your church is, even though they may not say it often enough. I want to say thanks on behalf of them, and model the way we need to be saying thanks to the leaders that serve alongside us—in ten different ways—through this ebook.

Thank YOU!
