Activity Ideas

Cease from Anger- Examples with multiple choice answers of how to act as peacemakers instead of reacting.

Peacemakers- (better for older classes) Decode the message (its after the word search)

I am a Peacemaker- Read what other kids think about being a peacemaker than fill out how you can be a peacemaker. The writing is better for older classes. 

Blessed are the Peacemakers- Bright Idea poster. Try making it into a puzzle and put one piece up at time as you do the lesson or as they try to guess what the lesson is about.

A Peacemaker- Illustrated story about how Joseph Smith is a peacemaker and told us to be as well. Turn it into a comic strip on a scroll for a fun way to read it.

Peacemaker Wanted- Towards the bottom there is a order of sequence activity. President Eyring offers some good counsel as well.

If I Choose Obey, I'll Be Happy All Day- Make a Beatitude booklet
