I did this to use with the Seminary Old Testament Manual, Lesson 20
I had another great lesson with the students today so I thought that I would share it. It all started in our Relief Society lesson in church. The gal giving the lesson used the cutest sunflower and sun to teach her lesson. When I commented on it she told me to take it home and use it for seminary. I did and I worked out great.
I reviewed with the students a little about being the seed of Abraham and gave them this quote by Russell M. Nelson from the lesson. I printed mine on a bright yellow paper.
Here it is in journal size:
I put the sun over the flower.
I put the dirt underneath the flower.
Then I told them that the dirt is the responsibilities that we have and the sun is the blessings that we will receive. Then we went through the Abraham 2:9-11 and wrote what those blessings would be on the sun-rays and then taped them on to the sun. I also had them underline them in their scripture
Print two sun-ray
I ended by explaining that the blessings of the sun are those blessings that we would receive in the Celestial Kingdom. I had them read D&C 76:70:96.
I also took a little time telling them about Abraham's travels and such. I tried to use their Bible maps, but unfortunately none of the kids had a good map in their Bible.
I hope this idea works for you. Please feel free to drop me a note to tell me about your class and what you are up to.
