My class of 8 year old boys LOVED this activity! Usually they are rowdy so I was afraid of doing something like this but they were really reverent and only had to "repent" once! One of the kids was upset that we had to go back to class but it was a great teaching moment about how our choices affect others and how even though Nephi was righteous, the bad choices of his brothers meant that the Liahona wouldn't work for all of them, or that their ship was stuck in a storm for all of them. After the lesson they said it was the best lesson we'd ever had and asked if we could do it again next week!
