Lesson Ideas

Scripture Figures- Alma the Younger, the sons of Mosiah, and the angle- make these into puppets to tell the story

Facing Feelings (scroll down)- Make this box head to show feelings when we hurt someone, say sorry, etc. You could also make a simplified paper version if you use paper cut into strips that can flip open to different parts (mouth, eyes, nose flip book) or make this fun version of Happy and Sad faces.

Feelings- Use this to make a happy or sad face as you explain why it's important to say sorry

Repentance- Color than assemble this triangle

Learning from Mistakes- Put these steps of repentance in order

Help Eli Show He Is Sorry- Maze
