Lesson 6: Adam and Eve Lived the Gospel of Jesus Christ


The purpose of teaching Primary 6 Lesson 6: Adam and Eve Lived the Gospel of Jesus Christ is to help everyone understand the gospel is eternal and will help us gain exaltation.

Teaching Thoughts

  • Use the journal pages included in my handouts for Primary 7 Lesson 6 for the children to record their memory of their baptism as mentioned in the Enrichment Activities
  • Use this tootsie roll handout idea to encourage discussion about the Holy Ghost as mentioned in the Enrichment Activities. Each time they share an experience, have the say which role the Holy Ghost was playing and toss them a Tootsie Roll. 
  • Check out the fun Living the Gospel Journey idea included in The Red Headed Hostess class packet.

"What Do We Hear"- A talk by President Spencer W. Kimball (former Prophet and President) that goes over the gospel starting with Joseph Smith, going back to Adam then talking about our day.  Some good quotes.

The Gospel is Restored- Make this roller box to show the different times but the gospel still being the same.

I"ll Follow Him in Faith- Put this mobile together to show the prophets throughout time (it ends with President Gordon B. Hinckley so you may want to change the picture to President Monson) declaring the Lord's eternal gospel.

First Things First- Four pictures to color and use to go along with the 4th Article of Faith with stories throughout the scriptures.

Like Adam and Eve- Use this poster to show how we are similar to Adam and Even.
