This is how I'll use this
activity (Conny H.):
Gather all the object in a box. Then cover all the objects with a blanket.
|Flax seed (or wheat)||When this prophet was young, his family
farmed to earn money so they could buy things they needed.
|A picture of a small log cabin
(or the re-created Smith log home)
|When this prophet was young, his family built their own home that looked like this picture.|
|A Bible||When this prophet was young, his family used to read together, each night, from the Bible and talk about it.|
|A bed||We went in depth into the story of Joseph Smith's illness|
|A rope||We then went into the story of how the Dr. couldn't help
this prophet, so he wanted to amputate. To read the story look in:
"Boys who became prophets" pg. 2-3
"Mothers of the prophets" pg. 7-9
|A wooden box (or picture of one - I drew one)||Tell the story about the sacred record being hidden in the wooden box to protect it from people who wanted to steal it.|
|Small blanket||Tell the story about this prophet hiding the sacred record in bed with his two little sisters once when a bunch of men broke into the house to steal the sacred record.|
|A picture of the Kirkland temple||This prophet organized the building of the first temple in our time in Kirkland, Ohio.|
|A small toy||This prophet was very playful, loved children, and
loved to play.
