The purpose of teaching LDS Primary 2 Lesson 42: The Church of Jesus Christ Is on the Earth is to understand that the church now is the same as in Jesus' day.
These are a few bonus ideas- keep scrolling for more!
- Help your class memorize the 6th Article of Faith with these worksheets (It helps them pass off a Faith in God requirement as well).
- The Cups lesson is always a great way to teach about the need for the restoration. I prefer this version of it though both work great.
- Add some fun with Restoration Headbandz from Little LDS Ideas (it's free).
