Old Testament Units of Measurement Handouts

These files are from the Old Testament manual for Institute. The original files were, unfortunately, filled with a weird pinky-orange background rendering them nearly impossible to photocopy and very difficult to read. I have taken the liberty of converting them to black and white and enlarging the text for readability. Now they are perfect for use in your classes when teaching about the measurements used in the Old Testament. The…

Levite Tabernacle Offerings Handout

Okay — the lesson for Leviticus 1 seemed pretty boring. Even really boring. And I just didn’t want to cover all that blood and such in class because I have a tendency to faint, so instead, I made this handout based on the chart in the Institute Manual pps 162-3 and the 5 points in the Seminary lesson manual. To use this, each student will need one handout (Tabernacle Offering.pdf)…

Old Testament Coinage

This handout shows the differences between the coinage and weights used during Old Testament times, including gerah, shekel, and talent. The original file from the OT Institute manual had a pink-ish background making it nearly impossible to photocopy. I removed the background and created this superior version. The file is still Copyright 2011, Intellectual Reserve. Used by permisison.

Old Testament Who Wants to Be A Millionaire – Genesis to 1 Samuel

A schoolteacher friend made us a game based on the television show, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire using Book of Mormon personalities. I altered it to use people from the Old Testament from Genesis to 1 Samuel as a review game for the kids in my class. This game takes about 10-15 minutes total to play, so I used it as part of a 3-way centers rotation between a…

Old Testament Magic Squares – Handout

Old Testament Magic Squares 2015

The original Magic Squares document by Janice Lee Griffith Tate is available at the old http://si.lds.org/ in the CES Conferences Section under Old Testament. Here’s a link: http://www.ldsces.org/old-testament/conference/ Problem is, the motions that go with the magic square are not described in the handout. I have a copy of one that a friend gave me, and I have created this handout that includes text to describe the actions. You should…

Scripture Journal glue ins – Agency, Judgment, Suffering in Mortal Life

Here are the glue-ins I’m using for teaching the Plan of Salvation for Old Testament. Agency: The Greatest Decision We want our children and their children to know that the choice of life is not between fame and obscurity, nor is the choice between wealth and poverty. The choice is between good and evil, and that is a very different matter indeed. …Our lives are made up of thousands of…

Old Testament Mad Gab (Scripture Mastery) Game submitted by www.LeannaProsser.com

The object of the game is very simple. Each card has a set of unrelated words. When you read them aloud, they sound like familiar phrases, names, places . For example “eye knome eye read dimmer leaves” Now say it a few times and take a good guess. The answer is “I know my Redeemer lives”. Wasn’t that fun!? The rules: Divide class into two teams. There are lots of…

Jenny’s Old Testament Reading Schedule Pacing Guide

This is the pacing guide, or reading schedule that I am using for my Seminary class. In my class, I ask the kids to read the material before class and then we discuss it. This isn’t the typical way, I know. I’m posting what I did here in case it helps home study students or teachers to see one way to break up the reading assignments. While I do not…

Books of the Old Testament Cards – Color Coded

I created little cards for my Seminary class they could use to learn the 39 books of the Old Testament. These are color coded by the major divisions (law, history, poetical, prophets) to help them learn those divisions and aid in grouping. It just happened to work out that 2 sets of cards fits exactly on 3 pages. I laminated the cards and used them during class for timed competitions…
