Lesson 22: Israel and the Brass Serpent


The purpose of teaching LDS Primary 6 Lesson 22: Israel and the Brass Serpent is to encourage humility and faith in Jesus Christ.

Teaching Thoughts

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

  • Put a picture of Jesus Christ on the board- just a little above the center of the area your class would normally look if looking straight ahead. Ask them to balance on one foot while looking down at their toes. Then ask them to balance on one foot while looking at Jesus. It should be easier when they are looking at Christ. Compare this to humility and looking to Christ instead of ourselves. 
  • Remember to head back to Lesson 20 to get great thumbs up and thumbs down signs to go with one of the Enrichment activities.
  • Encourage your class to write down what they are learn from this scripture story with the handouts included in the Red Headed Hostess class packet.
