Comments: I like to have the children teach whenever possible. I think it works best where there is a lot of short concepts to teach in one lesson. I call the parents ahead of time to discuss the lesson, and then I always call Saturday afternoon/evening as a reminder. I encourage the children to use pictures or other materials to help them feel comfortable giving a lesson
Identify Doctrine: Briefly have 6 children discuss the following principles of the gospel listed below. Have each child emphases how a person can use his/her agency in each stage of the plan of happiness.
Encourage Understanding: After every child teaches sing the corresponding songs with the children:
Before I came to earth I lived in heaven (“I Lived in Heaven” [CS, 4]).
I chose to come to earth and receive a body (“I Am a Child of God” [CS, 2–3];
I will be baptized and receive the gift of the Holy Ghost (“When I Am Baptized” [CS, 103];
I can prepare to go to the temple (“I Love to See the Temple” [CS, 95];
“Families Can Be Together Forever” [CS, 188]).
I will be resurrected (“He Sent His Son” [CS, 34–35]).
