Primary 2 Lesson 20: The Teachings of Jesus Christ are a Great Treasure- The purpose of this lesson is to instill the desire to learn about Christ's teachings.
These are a few bonus ideas- keep scrolling for more!
- Hide this small treasure chest somewhere in your room or in the building with some of my paper gems hidden inside. Go on a scavenger hunt to find the chest then have your class dig through to find the real treasure. I also have a free printable treasure chest you can assemble on my Primary 6 Lesson 21 helps.
- Focus on the treasures in your Primary class with the fun activity included in The Red Headed Hostess class packet.
