Lesson 14: Adam and Eve Were Created in Heavenly Father's Image

Lesson

The purpose of Primary 1 Lesson 14: Adam and Eve Were Created in Heavenly Father's Image is to understand that Adam and Eve were created in the image of Heavenly Father.

Teaching Thoughts

  • There is never very much on Adam and Eve in terms of activities to do. Since this lesson seemed to have more to do with the creation as a whole instead of us being like Heavenly Father, I included creation activities as well. This lesson ends the whole creation study. 
  • I found this great Adam and Even file folder game and paper doll chain that would work for this lesson especially as you tie everything together. 
  • The Red Headed Hostess has more teaching suggestions and activities in her lesson packet or grab her combo packet.

My Primary 1 Lesson 14 handout packet includes

  • 7 page accordian booklet reviewing the last few lessons and ending a coloring page of Adam and Eve. Color and add stickers for more fun. You will have to assemble the book let. You can glue each 2 page section together then fold or cut each apart and staple.
  • 7 page accordian booklet with words only. Glue in fun objects instead- gold foil star stickers, animal fabric squares, shimmery blue paper. Have fun making this a more textile book ending the last page with a photo or drawing of themselves.
