Teaching Thoughts

These are a few bonus ideas- keep scrolling for more!

  • Bring in some blocks to build the city of Enoch as your class answers questions.
  • Remember you can print all the Article of Faith posters for free here. Cut them into puzzles as you work on memorizing them. (Pssttt....this helps to pass off Faith in God requirements too).
  • Check out the Scripture Activity included in The Red Headed Hostess class packet.

My Primary 6 Lesson 7 handouts include

  • City of Enoch grid- Cut apart and give one piece to each child in your class to draw that section of the picture on a larger piece of paper. Then have everyone connect their pieces on the board to see what it looks like all together to represent working as one.
  • City of Enoch picture- Cut apart to use as a puzzle. As each child says one thing that will help them come closer to Zion (as mentioned in the Enrichment Activities), they can put one piece of the puzzle on the board.
If you like these helps, please pin it so others can find it too!
