Simple Ideas for Primary 2: Lesson 20

on June 2, 2016

Teaching a group of young children can be a daunting task.  So, my husband and I like to keep our lessons simple.  Here’s the basic schedule we follow:

  • 5-10 minute Bathroom Break
  • 5-10 minute Sharing (Class members share ways they Chose the Right during the week)
  • 20-25 minute Lesson
  • 15-20 minute Art Activity


In each of my Simple Ideas for Primary 2 Lessons posts, I’ll be sharing our basic lesson outline, Art Activity ideas, etc.  Also, be sure to check out the Free BI Originals tab for more resources!


Primary 2: Lesson 20 ~ Outline

Review: Heavenly Father’s Plan & Jesus Christ Loves Me

Discussion: Personal Treasures

  • Share some of your personal treasures
  • Ask the children about their own personal treasures


Discussion & Scripture: Earthly Treasures vs. Heavenly Treasures

  • Explain that even though earthly treasures are nice, they are temporary.
  • What kind of treasures will last forever?
  • Doctrine and Covenants 14:7 ~ “And, if you keep my commandments and endure to the end you shall have eternal life, which gift is the greatest of all the gifts of God.”


Activity: Treasure Hunt

  • Print, cut out, and place the clues below, in the appropriate locations, before class.  The “Location” tells where the clue should be kept/hidden.
  • For the “5th CLUE”, have a set of scriptures or golden plates hidden in the room for the children to find.
  • If you would like more ideas, check out my “FHE Activity: Scripture Treasure Hunt” post.

The Teachings of Jesus Christ Are a Great Treasure - Cards

There will be a lot of cutting for this project, so you’ll either want to save ample class time for the activity, or do the cutting beforehand.  Each treasure box page and treasure cards page has two copies of that part of the activity.  For further directions on how to prepare the treasure box, visit: www.laughingandlosingit.net
