Seminary Class Reward For Coming After the Daylight Savings Time Change - Fun Dips

I got a box of Valentine's Fun Dip on clearance.  I thought that it would be fun to reward the students who came to class after the time had changed to an hour earlier.  I used the fun dips and taped on the saying  below.

The Building of the Kirtland Temple - Drawn by my LDS Seminary Students

I started out by giving each student a copy of the handout below.  It has the architectural drawings of the Kirtland Temple. On the back it has all the facts that are from the LDS Kirtland Temple page.  To use my pictures and printouts just right click on them to make them large.  Then save them into your pictures, or copy and paste them into your printing program.



Since we have been studying the Doctrine and Covenants, and since we are at D&C 109, the Kirtland Temple Dedication, I thought that we should take the time to discuss all the work that went into the building of the Kirtland Temple.  I gave each student a small paper telling them a story about the sacrifice that went into building the Kirtland Temple.  They then drew a picture of it, wrote a sentence about it, and then shared it with the class. 

Here are two good articles that explain all the went into building the Kirtland Temple:

“Lesson 25: The Kirtland Temple Is Constructed,” Primary 5: Doctrine and Covenants and Church History (1997), 133–38

 BYU Religious Studies site in an article call Faith and Devotion in Building the Kirtland Temple bRichard O. Cowan.

 Here are the results:

I scanned the pictures and sent them to my I -phone and then showed them on the projector with the song "The Spirit of God".  I then took the originals and made it into a book to display in my classroom. You could also do a powerpoint if you were ambitious.

Here is a cover page printout and a page printout if you would like to use it for your classroom.
