Gossip

Object Lesson

I saw a similar object lesson to the toothpaste. The teacher gave the students a small pillow filled with feathers. The teacher tore it open and told him scatter the feathers. After he had done that, he then told him to go and pick up all the feathers and not come back until he had them all. Of course that was impossible. Gossip is like scattering the feathers, hurtful words…

Sharing the Light

Object Lesson

Because this lesson uses live flame, it is best done out of doors at camp or family home evening. “Primary teacher Pam Lareaux told about a time her grandmother took her into a darkened room, lit a candle, and showed Pam how she could light other candles from her own.

Word of Wisdom – Care Manual for our bodies

Object Lesson

Explain that when a consumer purchases a new vehicle or appliance, the manufacturer provides instructions on the care and maintenance of the machine. (If you brought an owner’s manual, show it to class members with a short explanation of what it contains.) By following the recommended instructions, a person can expect better performance and longer use from the vehicle or appliance. What may happen if the owner ignores the manufacturer’s…

Don’t judge a Kiwi by it’s cover

Object Lesson

Pass around the kiwi fruit. Make the point that the kiwi has a rough, unpleasant, hairy, tasteless exterior. Ask the students the following questions: 1) What makes the kiwi fruit seem unappealing? (It’s exterior.) 2) What are some outward features by which we judge others? 3) Who might be “kiwi people” around us? When the fruit has been examined by everyone, peel off the skin, and slice up the inside…

His Image in Your Countenance

Object Lesson

Take a picture of someone in the group with a digital camera, or bring a photo of someone most everyone will recognize like the prophet, a national leader, or your Bishop/Branch President. Describe the person in the photo to your class and ask the students to guess who it is from your description. Be vague in your description such as “This person has brown hair. This person is a man….
