➤ L E S S O N

Open the lesson with a song and a prayer.

🎶 O P E N I N G S O N G : "Nephi's Courage"

➤ P R E P A R A T I O N

Fill a large bowl or large plastic container with water. Gather eight small objects that float (These objects will represent the Jaredite barges and the water will represent the ocean). Some objects that would work well are: nuts with the shells on, corks or small sticks broken into short pieces.

➤ I N T R O D U C T I O N

Place the bowl or large plastic container on the floor (under a towel) and invite the children to gather around the “ocean.” Place the floating objects on the water on one side of the container.

Review the story of when the Jaredites traveled across the ocean to the Promised Land inside 8 barges. Invite children to provide the wind by blowing on the objects so that they will float to the other side of the container. You could also invite them to shake the sides of the container gently to make some waves!

After you complete this activity, invite children to sit back down in their seats. Invite the children to form a “V” shape with their hands. Then, invite them to repeat the word “VALIANT” together with you.
