Creating Adam II

This brain is buzzing!

Purpose:

To demonstrate to teens how God created us wonderfully in His own image, and makes each part of our bodies to function marvellously with all the other body parts.  This game works great to illustrate how each member of a team is vitally important and that all must work together, or they will land up in a huge mess!

Materials Needed:

Many human bodies!
A Bible for each team.
A stop watch.
Small prizes (for example Jelly Babies!)

Preparation:

Arrange a short obstacle course down the hall using tables and chairs.  The human body Adam II will make his way throught this course until he reaches the final chair on which he will then place the Bible.

Text:

Psalm 139:14, "I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made."

 

How to Create His Body:
Today we are going to pretend that you created the world and now you are going to make Adam II.  I need you to form teams of six people (you could use more if want to).  Unlike God you will not use dust to make Adam.

Instead in your creation each person on the team will become one of the following body parts - body, eyes, brain, arms and legs.

To create Adam II team members will climb onto or hold onto each other to form his body.  Don't forget that the body must carry the brain!  We will give you a few minutes to create your Adam II body.

Making Adam II Come Alive:
God breathed into Adam I and he became a living soul.  You will make Adam II come alive by each body part performing their own function when instructed to by "BRAIN".

Adam II can only "walk" in a direction given by "EYES" who tells "BRAIN" where they are and where they need to go:

   "EYES" says: "I see a chair in the way".

   "BRAIN" then instructs "LEGS": "Legs move two steps left."

   "EYES" says: "I see a Bible on a table."

   "BRAIN" instructs "ARMS": "Arms reach down and pick up the Bible"."

   "EYES" says: "I see a way to the chair we want".

   "BRAIN" instructs "LEGS": "Legs move five steps forward."

In this way the whole body carries out the required movements.

Your Task:
God instructed Adam I to live in the garden of Eden and care for it.  Your task is to pick up a Bible and "walk" Adam II through the obstacle course and then place the Bible on the final chair!

Remember that each body part can only perform their own function.   This might sound complicated so we will give you time to practice and you will soon get the hang of Adam II Human Body!

Application:
In Psalm 139:14, David said,"I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made."  The Adam II creation demonstrates how God created our bodies in His own image, and made each part of our bodies to function marvellously well with all the other body parts.

This game illustrates how each member of a team was vitally important and that you had to work together or you landed in a huge mess!

And now we will have a Prize Giving to the winning team who took the least time and did not cheat!

God bless.
