Joseph Smith translated the Book of Mormon
(CSMP-booklet 2007; May week 2)

Display GAK 325 and tell the story of the translation of the Book of Mormon from the gold plates.

Divide the children into groups, and assign each group a part of the story to illustrate (have each child draw a picture).

Tape the pictures together in order, and show them in a roller box as the children retell the story in their own words (see “Roller Boxes,” TNGC, 178–79).

Sing “The Golden Plates” (CS, 86) or “An Angel Came to Joseph Smith” (CS, 86).
