Review: He Sent His Son

To introduce the song "He Sent His Son,"  I want to make sure that the children are familiar with the elements of Christ's life which are discussed in the song (and the pictures which I plan to use to represent them).  I'll spend the first week of January on this activity.

First, print document at the bottom of the page which contains the images.   These are from the album entitled "Jesus Christ" in the LDS Image Library.  I like them because I'm OCD and they match.  If you prefer, you can use pictures from the Gospel Art Kit. 

Next, choose 2-4 songs from each category (or choose your own) and write each one on a strip of paper.  Fold these strips and place them in a paper bag.

Display the pictures on the board at the front of the room and write the titles above them. Briefly explain to the children what each picture represents.  Have a child choose a strip of paper from the bag. Sing the song and ask the children to listen to determine to which picture the song belongs.  

41 - Once Within a Lowly Stable
42 - Away in a Manger
