The Jaredite Morning News - Teaching the Jaredite Journey Across the Ocean in Ether 6 of the Book of Mormon

Today in seminary we had a fun day where the students made a new broadcast for Ether 6.  I put the picture above on the TV screen and then gave each group a Morning News paper to draw their own picture, and one to write their news cast.  It turned out great!

Print 7 copies of the Jaredite Morning News.  As each group got up I took a picture of their drawing so that it showed up on the screen for their news cast.  
Then I gave each group one of the following handouts:

S'more Scripture Fun for LDS Seminary

I had leftover  S'more ingredients from an activity that we had at our house.  I just had to figure out a way to use it with my seminary class.  This is what I came up with.

Making the S'mores

Before class I laid out the s'mores on a cookie sheet with parchment paper for easy clean up.   Place the graham cracker on the bottom, then the chocolate, then the marshmallow, but leave off the top graham cracker. That way at the end of the lesson we could just pop them in the oven and cook them at 350 deg. for 5 minutes.  That's just enough time for closing prayer and clean up etc.  After the s'mores have cooked for 5 minutes, place the top on them and hand them out to your students.


The Lesson:

I had the students work in pairs.  I gave them a few scriptures at a time and each group wrote down as many facts as they could in that scripture block.  Then I called on random pairs to share what they learned and we discussed it as a class.  Each group counted how many facts they could find and kept a running total.  The group at the end with most points won a prize (usually a large candy bar). 

 It was very simple and fun.  All the students seemed to be engaged and learning. I hope that you can use it also.

Here's an example of the scripture block 
that I used:

Ether 2
