My Primary 4 Lesson 39 handout packet includes:

  • Mormon coloring page
  • Puzzles pieces to go with the Attention Activity. Glue the puzzle pieces onto construction paper then glue the Mormon coloring page on the opposite side and cut into pieces. There are 12 puzzles pieces and only 6 clues about Mormon so the rest of the pieces get your class into or talking about the scriptures. 
  • Scripture Gratitude Challenge sheet- 4 challenges to complete to show gratitude for the scriptures. Challenge your class to complete them all this week or do one a week saving time to share about it at the beginning of each class.
