Alma 5 Cardiogram Worksheets

Downloaded from: http://nwseminaryshare.weebly.com/2/post/2013/12/alma-5-cardiogram-worksheets.html Here are a couple of worksheets I have used to teach Alma 5.  They work well because they direct the students through almost the whole chapter.  As usual, click on the picture to get the worksheets.

While reading a scripture block, what are the things, phrases, allusions, etc that you don’t understand? What questions do you have after reading some scripture verses?

Example: Alma 5 is full of questions! Going through them asking them…
