Put GAK 240 (Jesus the Christ) in a box, and wrap it to look like a Christmas gift. Show the wrapped box, and tell the children that inside is something that represents the greatest gift we have ever been given. Have the children ask yes-or-no questions to guess what it is. Let the child who guesses correctly unwrap the gift. Post the picture of Jesus on the board. Remind the children that Christmas is a special time to remember Jesus Christ.
Beforehand, make the following wordstrips, and place them in random order around the room: "Jesus was baptized," "Jesus served others," "Jesus prayed to the Father," "Jesus went about doing good," "Jesus loves us," "Jesus learned to work," and "Jesus honored His mother." Do a matching activity to help the children visualize how remembering Jesus can influence their choices. Divide the board into two columns. At the top of one column, write Remembering Jesus. At the top of the second, write helps me choose the right. Give each class a scripture reference or GAK picture that tells about part of Jesus's life.
Examples: Matthew 3:13–17—Jesus was baptized; John 13:4–15—Jesus served others; 3 Nephi 17:15—Jesus prayed to the Father; John 15:12—Jesus loved us; GAK 206 (Childhood of Jesus Christ)—Jesus learned to work; GAK 242 (Jesus and His Mother)—Jesus honored His mother.
Ask the children to read the scripture or study the picture and find the wordstrip that describes it. When each class chooses correctly, place the wordstrip in the first column. Help the children think of a similar choice they can make, such as I will be baptized, I will serve others, I will pray to Heavenly Father, I will love others, I will learn to work, or I will honor my mother. Write it in the second column across from the matching wordstrip.
Sing "I'm Trying to Be like Jesus" (pp. 78–79). Express your gratitude for the wonderful gift of Jesus Christ, and bear testimony of the power of His example in helping us choose the right.
