Unity Object Lesson

Tomorrow I will be on lesson 43. I am looking for an object lesson or activity to teach the principle behind D&C 38:27. The principle is If we are not one, we cannot be the Lord’s people. Just trying to think of an activity where they have to work together to achieve a common goal. Thoughts?

I think the manual’s teaching suggestion is good. Divide the class into 2 groups. Instruct them to build the highest tower possible. Give one group more materials than the other. The two groups will think they are competing but they are not. Give them 2-3 minutes to finish the task. The class will have two towers. Then, point out that the instruction does not state to build 2 towers. Make them realize they should have pooled their resources. That is where unity will come into discussion.

I have tried this and it pretty made the point.
