My Primary 6 Lesson 10 handouts include

  • Two Targets to represent circles of love as there is room for more than one dart. You can add a larger piece of white paper around my target to show how it can expand as well. These go with the Enrichment activities talking about the circles of love. The blank one is for your students to write their names on.
  • Two sets of arrows- One set has examples of those that Abraham loved and the other set is blank for you to fill in.
  • Set of bean bag covers- If you don't want to use arrows, tape these covers to bean bags instead and toss them on the target during your lesson. Don't have bean bags? I like these bags as you can wipe them down or you can use rolled up socks. 
Please pin this so others can find it too!

Activity Ideas

I didn't find any activities to go with the story of Abraham and Lot but here are several to go with the topic of love.

Love at Home- Make the house and put the hearts inside as the children say one way they can show love or expand their circle of love.
