My Primary 6 Lesson 32 handout packet includes

  • I Dare You Cards- This is a great opener activity to introduce what peer pressure can feel like (or do it after discussing the scripture story). When we are given a dare we are automatically more pressured into doing it. Show how it's okay to say No by asking someone ahead of time to turned down the dare with you graciously moving on to the next person. Sometimes it's not a big deal to say No and sometimes we'll be pressured to do it more. Discuss what to do in those situations.
  • Situation cards as mentioned in the Enrichment Activities
  • Moroni 7:13 print. Have your class write around it some things that are of God as a reminder.
  • People that can help me worksheet as mentioned in the Enrichment Activities.
