Ideas for Teaching Children


I have been so excited to do this lesson, because it is the first time we get to use the map since covid....when no one really taught with it except a few families. If you decide to print this, DON'T thrown this map away, we will add to it.

Watch the movie and see if you think it is age appropriate learning for your students.


IF YOU ARE DOING THE MAP watch this movie.




I apologize if you printed early, the map has been updated as of May 10th 10am.

Download puzzle colored HERE, B&W HERE, you will need to know how to download and open a zipped file.


God helped people in the scriptures, and He can help me.

  • When his people were in trouble, King Limhi shared scriptures to build their faith. Ask your children about scripture stories or characters that help them have faith. Then you could read Mosiah 7:19 to them and review the stories mentioned in this verse (see “The Passover” and “The Israelites in the Wilderness” in Old Testament Stories, 70–76). Maybe your children would like to act them out. How did the Lord help the people in these stories? How can He help us?


Mitzi at comefollowmekid.com came up with this idea.





  • For more examples of how the Lord helps us, select some verses of “Book of Mormon Stories” or “Nephi’s Courage” (Children’s Songbook, 118–19, 120–21) to sing with your children. Help them identify how the Lord helped people in the Book of Mormon—and how He can help us.





The War Head sour taffy, really is NOT very sour. I hate sour and I love it. You can purchase 12 in a package at Dollar Tree.


Bring some yarn, wiggly eyes, macaroni, (and other beautiful junk items) to turn this card into something there Mom's will treasure.





God has given us prophets, seers, and revelators.

  • One way to teach about seers is to compare them to things that help us see better, like glasses, binoculars, or a microscope. Then as you read Mosiah 8:17 to your children, they could put their hands up to their eyes like they’re looking through binoculars each time they hear the word “seer” (see also Moses 6:35–36). Talk with them about things that the Lord helps prophets “see” that we can’t. What have our prophets or seers, such as Joseph Smith, revealed to us?


Here are some amazing glass you can use for this activity:




The students can draw/ write some things in the circles that the prophet has counseled us to do.


  • After reading Mosiah 8:16–18 with your children, you could help them think of ways to complete a sentence like A seer is like a … who helps us … . For example, a seer is like a traffic sign who points us to Jesus.


  • You could also make paper footprints and invite your children to draw pictures on them of things that prophets, seers, and revelators have counseled us to do. Place the footprints in a path around the room, and let your children walk on these footprints. How can a seer be “a great benefit” to us? (see Mosiah 8:17–18).



When I am weak, the Lord can strengthen me.

  • When children face challenges, they sometimes feel weak and helpless. How will you help your children rely on the Lord’s strength? You could ask them what we do to become physically strong. What does it mean to have “the strength of men”? (see Mosiah 10:11). What does it mean to have “the strength of the Lord”? (see Mosiah 9:17–18; 10:10). How do we receive the strength of the Lord? Your children could draw a picture of things that help them receive the strength of the Lord.

I love the map and thank you for the replacement pieces for 1 and 3. I had just planned to talk the class through the pieces that were originally missing, but it looks so much better visually for the kids. I can also understand the missing numbers, because I am sure these will be added as the story grows. Can I ask if the next map pieces be included in your lesson, like the addtional pieces 1 and 3. That was such a relief because i found creating a ZIP FILE etc was hard for me to do, though I did manage. I used your site all the time when I was teaching the younger children, and now t…

I love the puzzle but I have to agree with Torri. It's confusing that the pieces are numbered 1-9 then skip to 15-16, and 17. You can't help but think pieces are missing. Afterall, to me telling the story starts at puzzle piece 1 and continues through all the puzzle pieces. If the chapters in Mosiah were numbered 1 through 9, then the next chapter was 15, you would wonder what happened to chapters 10-14? Anywho, great job. I absolutely love everything you do. I pray you are abundantly blessed for all your efforts in teaching the gospel in such an inspired way

I totally understand where you are coming from, but if you really look at the video and the order of the story, there are pieces that need to be place before those puzzle pieces, study it, you will see. ❤️
