"We rejoice in Christ"

This week's lesson comes from the Primary manual:
The temple is the house of God
Preparation: Print out and hide the temple questions from this October 2009 Friend around the room. We've typed them up in larger print to make it easier to print them off and hide. Print and put together the primary handout.
Opening Song: I Love to See the Temple,” pg 95
Scriptures: 2 Nephi 12:2-3
Read 2 Nephi 12:2-3.
Explain that in this verse a prophet named Isaiah prophesied that there would be temples in the last days. Emphasize that in the temple the Lord “will teach us of his ways” and help us “walk in his paths.”
Have your kids go around the room and find the questions you hid. Discuss the answers together.
(Some of the answers have changed since 2009 😂 so here are the updated answers)
1. 34 in 2000
2. President Hinckley dedicated 88 temples
3. 167 (dedicated and under rennovation as of January 2020)
4. 50 (as of January 2020)
5. 123 (dedicated, under construction and announced as of January 2020)
Pull out the primary handout and opening the windows have your kids tell you about what they have learned about the temple.
If you have older kids preparing to enter the temple, there is a great article in the September 2011 Friend.
For fun check out this list of all the temples in the world!
Activity Ideas:
Have a temple building contest. Marshmallows and toothpicks work really well!
