Lesson 17: I Am Thankful for My Hands


The purpose of Primary 1 Lesson 17: I Am Thankful for My Hands is to appreciate what our hands can do.

These next few lessons are really hard to find related activities through LDS.org. You can always refer back to the lesson about the body and continue to use those resources.

If you are doing the body drawing, color in the hands or put the different textures on the fingers as shown below in the Pin.
