Lesson 34: Elijah and the False Prophets of Baal


The purpose of teaching LDS Primary 6 Lesson 34: Elijah and the False Prophets of Baal is to learn to diligently worship our Heavenly Father.

Teaching Thoughts

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

  • Use my W-O-R-S-H-I-P letter posters and have your class decide what each letter can stand for to remember how and why we worship.

  • Discuss the places and ways we worship. For example, we worship at the temple and at church. How do they differ? How is it the same? '

  • Continue to discuss worship in the activity included in the Red Headed Hostess class packet.

The following are links to LDS.org resources unless otherwise noted.
