The purpose for teaching Primary 4 Lesson 24: Alma Counsels His Son Corianton is to understand that there are good and bad consequences depending on our choices.

My Primary 4 Lesson 24 handout packet includes:

  • Journal page handout to go with Enrichment Activity 5
  • Choice and consequences chart. Use the ideas in Enrichment Activity 2 for the choice to be made and think of 2 options. Note, there are usually more than 2 options but it's best to keep it simple for this lesson. I made this one in color but I did include a grayscale one at the end for those that need it.
