The purpose of Primary 3 Lesson 35: Temples and Eternal Families is to understand that families can be together forever.
- Younger classes will enjoy this I Love to See the Temple File Folder game from Green Jell-o with Carrot.
- Put a picture of your local temple on the wall where everyone can see it then go on a journey to get there- climbing over obstacles, through tunnels, etc.
- If you are in the USA, bring a big map of the states and discover where all these Temple Cards are on the map. There are fun facts on the back too so you can read more about your temple.
The following are links to LDS.org resources unless otherwise stated.
