Why Memorize Verses? and Key Verse vs Memory Verse

We have always included memory verses in our Rotations with good results. The kids learn the verses and have fun doing memory verse activities.

 

Last week, however, a student asked "so why do we memorize verses" and got a lack luster response from the teacher. Discussing it as a staff we struggled with an answer that a 1st-6th grader would accept. 

 

What do you say to kids and parents about the importance of memorizing some Bible verses?
