Simple Ideas for Primary 2: Lesson 25

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 25 ~ Outline

Review: Gratitude

Scripture Story & Discussion: The Ten Lepers (Luke 17:11-19)

  • Tell the children the story of The Ten Lepers.
  • Point out that only one of the ten lepers returned to thank Jesus.  He was blessed with wholeness of spirit, in addition to a healed body, for showing his gratitude.


Discussion Activity: “Thank You” Bean Bag Toss

  • Have the children sit on the floor in a circle.
  • Instruct the children say “Thank You for __________” to someone else in the circle, then toss the bean bag to that person.  Continue until everyone has had a turn to express thanks.
  • Ask the children how they feel when they express thanks.


Coloring Activity: Make “Thank You” Cards

  • Provide the children with materials to make “Thank You” cards for their family and friends.  You can use the print-outs below, if you would like to.
