Do you know our Prophets?
(by sanpinney)

First of all, I am making a big huge chart. On the bottom left corner of the chart I drew some trees and wrote in big letters "Sacred Grove." Then, in the upper right corner I drew a sun with a big cloud and wrote the words "Celestial Kingdom" in the cloud. Then I drew a windy path leading from the sacred grove to the Celestial kingdom. Along the path I put pictures of the 15 latter-day prophets and wrote their name underneath. I then covered them with squares and sticky tack (so they could be removed easily) that were numbered from 1 to 15.

I brought a big box full of items that represent each prophet and something they stood for. The children took turns pulling something out of the box and I told them what it meant (I had them guess the more obvious ones) and then we sang a song to emphasize it.
Our chorister then taught the "Latter-day Prophets" song with the remainder of the time.
Using all 15 prophets makes it a little long, especially with SR primary because they like to gab about everything.

As each child drew an item out of the box, we talked about what it represents, then the child tried to choose which number that prophet belongs (only had SR primary try to guess the number of the prophet) and then we sang a song. We only sang one verse to each song for timesake.
