Christmas Nativity Quiz for Key Stage 2

Christmas Nativity Quiz for Key Stage 2

How well do you know the Christmas Story? Everyone thinks they know the story of the birth of Jesus. But it is only reported by Matthew and Luke in the New Testament very briefly. Over the years the story has been embellished. This quiz will help pupils, youth groups, bible study groups, families and friends discover how well they really know the bible story. Great fun for a Religious Education unit, great for reviewing finding chapters and verses, and reviewing the story of the birth of Jesus as told in the New Testament. Directions: Activation hook: Have students recall the story of the birth of Jesus without access to the scriptures. Hand out the Christmas story quiz and have students fill out only the yes or no columns (shaded grey) either on their own or with a partner, again without access to a bible. When everyone has completed the activation activity give the students a copy of the New Testament or use the chapters enclosed. (The benefit of using copies of the enclosed chapters is that students can use highlighters when they find a relevant verse from the quiz). Review how to find chapters and verses and how to record them on the quiz sheets. Explain that some of the statements in the quiz only appear in Matthew, others only appear in Luke and some may appear in both. If they cannot find the statement in either Matthew or Luke, they should mark the N/A box. Use the Christmas Story Retell sheet to put the events in order. Review Have students share what they have found to be in the bible, and what has become part of the story surrounding the birth of Jesus over subsequent years. What things were surprising? Why do they think that in the whole of the New Testament so little space is given over to the birth of Jesus (perhaps because his contemporaries and disciples felt that the message he gave was more important than the story of his birth?). **Note to teachers: this activity has been created in good faith and is intended for students to practice finding chapters and verses in a fun manner, to review the story of the Nativity as it is written in the bible and to discuss how this relates to their interpretation of Christmas. Please use the quiz as best suits the needs of your students. Whilst historians and theologians have long wrangled with the details of the birth of Jesus, this quiz relies on evidence in the bible alone.
