Ideas for Visualizing the Psalms
The vivid images in most psalms can inspire illustrating activities,

  • "Pictionary" style games, and even "charades." For example, in the following are visual words "praise," and "song" and "magnify." 
  • If you are studying one psalm, you could split into teams to see who can come up with the best visual non-verbal reciting of the psalm. You could split a longer psalm into dramatize-able sections.   
  • You could create a handout of psalm verses (all on the same subject, such as worship or thanksgiving. Give the handout to everybody and then secretly assign one psalm to each student who then acts it out. Class guesses which psalm they are acting out.
