Primary 4 Lesson 11
Primary 4 Manual
Lesson 11: Abinadi and King Noah
Suggested Home Reading
Suggest that the children study Mosiah 11:1–2, 20–21, 26–29; 12:1–9; and Mosiah 17 at home as a review of this lesson.
Activities from the Friend:
Give each child a copy of the nine-dot diagram, or draw it on the chalkboard. Tell the children that they are to connect all the dots by drawing four continuous straight lines without lifting the pencil off the paper or chalk off the chalkboard. After they have tried several solutions, show one child the correct solution without telling the others. Have that child show another child, and so on until all the children can connect the dots. Explain that when we learn something, we can help other people when we teach them what we know. When we learn about Heavenly Father, we can help other people by telling them about him.
Alternate Attention Activity
Have the children take turns removing objects from the sack. Ask each child to tell one or two things about his or her object. Explain that as the children learn about a righteous and valiant prophet named Abinadi, they will see how each object relates to his life.
For the alternate attention activity, put the following objects in a sack or bag:
A paper mustache
Abinadi came back in disguise (Mosiah 12:1).
A flashlight or lightbulb
Abinadi’s face shone with luster (Mosiah 13:5).
A paper replica of the Ten Commandments
Abinadi taught the Ten Commandments (Mosiah 13:11–24).
A picture of Christ
Abinadi boldly testified of Jesus Christ (Mosiah 15; 16; 17:8).
A piece of rope or string
Abinadi was bound (Mosiah 17:13).
Abinadi was killed by fire (Mosiah 17:20).
