Everything was created for a purpose. From objects we use every day to obscure items that 99% of the population will never encounter, everything has a maker and that maker created that thing for a specific reason.

In this screen game, students will be presented with the picture of an unusual tool, object, or device — along with two possible explanations (one real, one fake) for why that item exists. Their goal is to correctly identify each object's real purpose. Why does it exist? It's much harder than it sounds.

This game was specifically created to go along with a lesson on God's unique purpose for His people. It works in a small group setting or as an upfront audience game.

This Resource Includes:
• Complete PowerPoint game file • Individual (10 Q&A + instructions) game slides (jpeg files) • Title slide (jpeg file)

Note from the Author

This game was created for an 8th-grade small group, as part of a series on identity; specifically on Ephesians 2:10 and how God creates each person intentionally and for a purpose. The students loved the game and were stumped on most of the questions.

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!
