Lesson 14: Dare to Choose the Right


Primary 2 Lesson 14: Dare to Choose the Right- The purpose of this lesson is to understand that we can choose the right like Jesus did.

Teaching Thoughts

  • Talk about how the only dares we should accept are those that invite us to do good. You can play a dare game where you dare each child to do something kind.
  • Play tic-tac-toe as you review the lesson then prepare to be superheroes as each child choose to be brave and choose the right at all times. 
  • Play the board game included in The Red Headed Hostess class packet.
