List of all the Verses and Questions from all four games (not included in the download)
Galilee Flyer is a flying game that takes place around and above the Sea of Galilee. Students pick from one of four lesson-subjects, then take off into the Galilean skies to find verses and questions floating above the landscape. The objective: find the Verses from their passage and match first halves of each verse with their correct second halves. Pop-up questions about each verse are also floating in the skies. Each one correctly answered increases the pilot's score. Once all the verse halves are found and matched, land on the island to get your score and fly again to try and beat it! Great for lesson time and meaningful fun time.
The four subjects are: The Beatitudes, The Lord's Prayer, Famous Sayings from the Sermon on the Mount, and the short Kingdom Parables (seed, leaven, treasure, pearl). 25-35 minutes per game depending on flying ability. Sunday Software notes that this has been one of its most popular titles, especially among older children and pre-teens.
Age Range: Primarily for older children, 1st and 2nd graders will enjoy the thrill of the game but will need lots of help navigating and reading verse halves to match them.
System: Windows 7, 8, and 10 -only.

Kids enjoy playing Galilee Flyer during "fellowship" or interim times at church. It is recommended that they not be allowed to play games which they have yet to play as a LESSON so as not to spoil the newness for teaching use.
Students must complete each of the verses in their chosen passage in order to complete the game. They can try as many times as they want, but answering right the first time improves your score the most.
Correctly answering the question pop-up panel also increases your pilot ranking!
Both the Verse and Question panels contain insights and life application.
