Craft Sticks – Notches

Handed out one of these [craft sticks] to each one [student. After the lesson], … they handed their stick back to me. I talked about how each of us may be weak (like the notches in the stick can weaken the stick) but together, the sticks can build a wonderful strong structure.

Then illustrate to the class how the rope can be broken by breaking one strand at a time. (I personally think yarn would be the easiest item to use for this lesson.

Unity

Object Lesson

I used this to teach how unity strengthens us and dis-unity weakens us. Have a YW take a pencil and break it. Talk about how it was easy to break because it was only one pencil. Then get several pencils (10 or so) and have a YW try to break them. It’s very hard. Talk about how, when we stand together we are strong and hard to break, but when…
