The purpose of Primary 3 Lesson 25: I Can Be a Missionary is to realize that we can do missionary work now.
- Use the idea of missionaries knocking on doors like in Pergler's Primary Place post.
- Incorporate Pin the Tag on the Missionary with your lesson! As your class answers questions, they get at turn to pin the badge on. You can award them with their own tag afterwards.
- Do the class missionary activity included in The Red Headed Hostess class packet.

My Primary 3 Lesson 25 handout packet includes
- Game cards to go with the Review section. Draw a simple board game on your whiteboard. Have each team or child roll a dice then pick a card. If the card is positive, they get to move forward. If it is negative, they have to move backwards. OR you can have them think of a new way they could be a missionary to overcome the negative one. The Your Choice card is meant to be an opportunity for the children to tell how they have been missionaries this week. There are also blank cards for you to write in your own fun things (like switch places with an opponent, skip a turn, or another missionary question).
Most of these ideas are similar to last week. The newer ideas are at the top of each section.
