• Scripture Hero Guess Who - Learning and Living the Gospel

    I really had to dive into my scriptures making this activity, and I learned so much! With conference coming up, I thought this would be a good activity to relate how what we learn from scripture heroes, isn't very different from what we learn from today's prophets :). This activity would be great for Learning and Living the Gospel, but would also work well for Sharing Time and Family Home Evening!

    This "Guess Who" activity has the following steps: 
    1. Choose a letter from the "Clue Mailbox" 
    2. Read the "Scripture Clue" from the letter
    3. Guess who the scripture clue is from and choose their name from the "Board Cards"
    4. Turn over "Board Cards" and find out what that prophet taught us
    5. Show President Monson's quote

    So I made a pretty simple mailbox with just two and a half pieces of card stock, tape and some scissors. I also made envelopes to put the scripture clues in:

    Ask a reverent helper to come to the front and choose an envelope out of the mailbox. In the envelopes, put a "Guess Who Scripture Clue". These have scriptures that the kids can read out loud to everyone, and then try to guess who the scripture is talking about/who said it. If they don't know, they can ask if someone else knows. I made twelve: Nephi, Enos, Abinadi, Samuel the Lamanite, Brother of Jared, Moroni, Moses, Noah, Abraham, David, Daniel and Joseph Smith. For example: My God hath sent his angel, and hath shut the lions’ mouths, that they have not hurt me: forasmuch as before him innocency was found in me; and also before thee, O king, have I done no hurt. Answer: Daniel

    Then on the chalkboard or wall, have the "Guess Who Board Cards" up, with the name of the scripture hero facing up. Once the participant has read the scripture clue and guessed who said it, they can choose their name from the board cards and turn it over to find out what we can learn from that scripture hero. Also put the President Monson quote on the board, with his picture but facing the chalkboard so no one can see.

    Then once all of the scripture heroes have been turned over, turn over the quote from President Monson and ask everyone who they think said it. Once they are done guessing, you can turn over President Monson's picture, and explain to everyone that we are very fortunate to have modern day prophets who teach us just like our heroes in the scriptures.
