As you teaching Primary 4 Lesson 40: The Jaredites Are Led to the Promised Land, remember the overall purpose is to encourage everyone to seek the guidance of the Holy Ghost throughout their lives.

Use the 4th Article of Faith coloring page with Enrichment Activity 2 then give the rest later as a Christmas gift. 

The Red Headed Hostess has a great game and lesson packet to go with this Ether lesson.

My Primary 4 Lesson 40 handout packet includes:

  • Jaredites tic-tac-toe board (see Enrichment Activity 3)
  • Tic-tac-toe questions

Instead of doing a class tic-tac-toe, have your class pair off in twos. Cut the question page in half so each person can ask and answer questions to earn their spots on the board. You should be able to play at least twice if you answer all the questions. These questions come from the Discussion and Application section as well as the Enrichment Activities.
