TO FIND LESSON: Present Lesson 17 – Primary 2 Manual – CTR-A: The Priesthood Helps Me.
OBJECTIVE: The lesson helps children understand how the priesthood can help us. Review the scripture story (p. 86) in the manual for which the following activity illustrates.
ACTIVITY: Calming the Seas Moving Ship Scene
Use the moving ship scene to talk about and remind children of the story in Mark 4:39 where Jesus calmed the storm. Tell children that Jesus helps and blesses us through the power of the priesthood. Hold onto the handle on the back of the scene with one hand and with the other, use the stick to move the boat back and forth. To simulate a rough sea, move the handle fast; to show a calm sea, move the handle slow.
