Help the children put together the puzzle on this week's activity page. Explain that Jesus wants His church to be built on his gospel, and use the activity page to talk to the children about what that means.
I really like the puzzle from this weeks activity page. I colored it for those of you who want to teach with it and don't want to spend time coloring it. Its also in black and white.
4 Nephi 1:2-3, 15-17
Living the gospel brings me joy.
Invite the children to talk about what makes them happy. To tell the children about the happiness of the people in 4 Nephi, read key phrases from verses 2-3 and 15-17.
Cut these out and hide them around the room, give hints if your child(ren) need it. Discuss each scripture after it is found, and add the shapes to “the road to happiness” page. Read the end scripture about happiness and bear your testimony about true happiness.
The manual encourages watching this:
Chapter 48: Peace in America (Just click in the picture).
Emphasize that the people were happy because they were converted to the Lord, they lived the commandments, and they loved one another.
Sing together a song about the joy that comes from living the gospel, such as "When We're Helping"
Just click on the picture to take you tot he place to print this.
Read phrase from 4 Nephi 1:24-29, 34-35, and 43 that describe what happened when some of the Nephites stopped keeping the commandments. As you do, invite the children to make a sad face when they hear something that sounds unhappy. Testify that keeping the commandments leads to happiness.
Here is a fun way to make this activity more interactive.
Teach the Doctrine: Older Children
Explain to the children that the word gospel means "good news". Help the children search 3 Nephi 27:13-15 for something that sounds like good news to them. Why are we grateful to know the gospel of Jesus Christ?
Have them write and draw stuff from these Scriptures, on the news paper. Stand up and report what they have recorded.
Come Follow Me- for Primary page 163 “Write on the board principles of the gospel like faith, repentance, baptism, the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end. Invite the children to search 3 Nephi 27:19-21, looking for these words or similar words in Jesus’s description of His gospel.”
Come Follow Me- For Primary page 163 “Prepare strips of paper with phrases from 4 Nephi 1:2-3,5 and 15-17 that describe the blessings the people received. Put the papers in a container, and let each child pick one and read it. Encourage the children to find their phrase in these verses from 4 Nephi. What do we learn from these phrases?
There is a "fill in the blank" to help encourage the children to find the phrase.
Read with the children the following verses, and ask them to find reasons the Nephites and Lamanites no longer had peace and happiness: 4 Nephi 1:20, 24-29,34-35, and 43. How can we avoid these dangers? Help the children discover ways we can avoid becoming prideful by reviewing Teachings of Presidents of the church:Ezra Taft Benson(2014), 238-39.
Here it is if you would like to print it out and highlight it.
That's all for this week, see you next week.
