How can I keep my 8 yr old son interested and focused on the test we're studying for?

I have an 8 yr old that has an exam coming up at church on Feb 18th. We have started studying for it but I've found it hard to keep him focused and starts to get frustrated and really bored. Does anyone have any ideas how to turn the studying into a game so that I can keep him interested but at the same time have him learn?

Try using flash card questions and for every like 5-10 right he gets a small prize like from the dollar store. Or maybe since he's having trouble focusing try getting him up and moving while he's learning like place the answers on the floor on cards and ask him a question and he runs and brings the answer back to you. That's just two thought up on spot maybe they might work
