I have based my ideas off of this article in the Friend.
(included in the download is this to print out on LEGAL paper-8.5×14)
What’s great about having a body?
Why do we have bodies?
What if there are things I don’t like about my body? (I love this one!)
Why doesn’t everyone look alike?
How should I treat my body?
I have created board size printouts with these questions and an “answer” box for each that are all color coded. You can play different variations with these.
1) Bring in some sticky darts and see if the kids can “dart” the pairs then discuss. Bean bags are also great for this (with the ground rules of no throwing)
These sticky darts are the ones I always have on hand but you can typically find them at party supply stores.
2) Create key words for each of the answer boxes and have the kids try to match the key word (write or print on the back of the answer boxes) to the question.
3) Have all the questions up on the board, scatter the answer boxes around the room on walls, under chairs, etc. Have the kids find the answer box that goes with the question, then discuss.
I have also included some illustrations from different Friend magazines about some things we can do with our bodies. You can put these up with the temple pictures from the “Introduce the doctrine” and ask the kids how are our bodies the same as temples?
There are 5 in all for the illustrations.
I wanted you to be able to send the kids home with something to summarize the lesson and I just loved this illustration from Susan Fitch and knew that it’d be perfect for this handout.
