1. I collected a variety of healthy and not so healthy foods. On two paper grocery bags I put a smiley face or a frowning face. I placed all of the items on the floor and had them sort them as healthy or unhealthy. We discussed the difference being that healthy foods made your body strong and happy while the other foods made your body sick and sad. There were a lot of foods that could go either way. (ie. juice) In these instances we talked about how eating too much of the food could be bad for your body. Some children were also confused about how a food like cookies that tasted good and made them happy could be unhealthy and make their bodies sad. Here we discussed the effects of sugar on your teeth and body. They really learned a lot about foods and their effects on our bodies.

5. Ask the children why they go to school.  Write their answers on the board.  Tell the class that Joseph Smith started a school for the men in the church.  It was called the School of the Prophets.  Ask them why they think Joseph wanted the men to go to school.  Discuss how the Word of Wisdom came to be.

6. Have the class pretend they are helping Emma Smith clean the room after the men leave: opening the windows to air the room, sweeping, dusting, scraping tobacco off the floor, etc.

    thank you for the great ideas. I am going to try something different and use play food instead of paper cut-outs and perhaps make a grocery shopping game out of it. Being that I have active 4 yr. old children I think this hands-on activity may be more engaging. Will let you know how it goes.

    I have between 10 and 12 active 7 to 8 year olds, so for this lesson I am planning on making a beanbag toss out of a big box and painting a face with an open mouth (the hole) on it, and also bringing a small clean trash can, then letting the kids pick a beanbag (with a picture attached) out of a bag and they can either throw it into the mouth or into the trash can! Keeping them active and entertained is one of the only ways to get through my lesson without losing the spirit! :)Then, after my lesson I'll be able to use those same "props" to teach my own children!

    I am thinking of making some red Kool-aid to put in two fancy glasses but add a drop of Tabasco sauce to one of them. They will look the same but when the child tastes the bad one it won't taste good. This is to represent that even though something might look good, it may not be good or it may have something bad in it.

    That's what I was thinking too. But I'm posting another idea.

    I was thinking about displaying my pictures from "The Lord Gave me a Temple" on poster board and covering them with different good, bad, and sparingly items. As we review each part of our song of the month, the children will have a chance to put the item covering the song pictures in the "trash can" for bad things, "the cupboard" or "cookie jar" for sparingly things, and a plate for healthy things.

  • Lisa Dewey  - Thank You
