It’s time to get back to school and get your students connecting! In this fun video-driven game, students will attempt to organize the row of seats they are sitting in according to the question on the screen. You can play it as a game in your service or a countdown video. It’s the perfect game to help your students get to know one another.


The new school year is here, so it’s time to get your students ready for this year with a game that will get everyone involved and helps students get to know each other.

Here is a quick rundown of how this game works: your students work together in teams based on the rows, chairs, or sections they sit in. Students will see a question pop up on the screen, and they will have 45 seconds to organize themselves in the correct order. When they get in the correct order, their row will sit down to let you know they were first.

This fast-paced game with energetic music is a great way to bring excitement and engagement into your ministry. One of the best parts about a game like this is students will get to know other students and hopefully make new friends!

The 2 formats provided in the resource allow you to use this game in various ways, such as using the individual game slides or as two separate 3:45 countdown videos. These videos are plug-n-play and ready to drop into whatever platform or program you use.
