Four Column Scripture Analysis

By Adriene Olsen Murray Adriene Olsen Murray:
I used this idea from our Seminary Coordinator. It works best with a short section or block of scriptures. It was really fun. The kids found things that I had not thought of and explained what it meant to them.
Divide the board into four columns:
1. Zinger — find verses in the block of scripture that are awesome, stand out to you, should be highlighted.
2. Questions — find any questions you might have from that block of scripture. Maybe a word that you don’t understand, or you wonder why that was included….
3. I Know Because — find something in the block of scriptures that you know to be true/have a testimony of. How do you know?
4. SMCR — Scripture Mastery Cross Reference. Find verses in the block of scriptures that relate to or cross reference with one of the 25 D&C Scripture Mastery verses.

Give the kids 5-7 minutes to quietly study the block of scripture. As they find verses that fit into the different columns on the board, have them write the reference or comment on a “post it note” and place it in the proper column. It gets them up and moving around, which is a nice change.
When time is up, go through and talk about what they have found. We had kids that usually don’t say much, share examples and talk….always a bonus!
I will use this again sometime. #effectiveteachingtool
