My Primary 2 Lesson 34 handout packet includes

  • Spider web with numbered spiders to help you play the "Tell the Truth" game in the manual. The numbered spiders go with each number situation. Have class member pick a spider from the web then tell them the scenario. If they get it correct, they untangled the spider; if not, it goes back on the web. I left some spiders blank if you want to add more or play a little differently. You could use fake spider web and spiders instead.

  • Handout to encourage honesty. Attach plastic spider rings in the web of the handout as a reminder for the children to wear during the week.
