The Lord Gave Me a Temple, verse 2

All you need is more chalk this week!  Find my lesson plan for the 1st verse HERE.

Before Primary, write the 2nd verse on the chalk board but only use about 1/3 of the top.

Sr. Primary you'll be playing a form of Pictionary. Choose a child to come and choose a word off the chalkboard to draw. Make sure they don't say it out loud.

As the Primary sings the verse, the child draws a picture their chosen word on the board. If children singing know what is being drawn, they can raise their hand.

Once you finish singing the verse, have the Primary guess which word the child drew. Once guessed, erase the picture and the word that was drawn.

Repeat with a new child and a new word until most of the words are erased and the song is learned!

For Jr. Primary, draw out the verse in pictures. Sing a line then ask what can be drawn. For instance, the first line of the 2nd verse reads "If I keep my body clean and pure and habit free," You could draw a body, a hand with a rag cleaning for "clean" and a cigarette crossed out for "habit free". Then sing the line using the pictures.

Gradually add on until the whole song is on the board in pictures. Good luck drawing "resurrection morning" though!! ;)

Time permitting, do the same activity with the 1st verse.

I really love this idea! My Sr. Primary loves Pictionary so this will be perfect. Thanks for sharing!

For resurrection morning you could draw a sun coming up over the horizon!

This is great because it allows for singing during the activity so that all the time isn't squandered on the "game". I plan on using this one!

Love this idea! I'm definitely going to be using this one. My junior and senior is combined but I think the little kids will be able to do it too with a few suggestions and help. Thanks again!

Great idea... and like you said, this can be used for any song! I like it for a review idea to help reiterate the songs they've learned...
