Primary 1 Lesson 15: The Sabbath Is a Day of Worship

Primary 1
Lesson 15: The Sabbath Is a Day of Worship

“Chapter 18: The Israelites in the Wilderness”

“The Sabbath Day” 
“Remember the Sabbath Day” 

For the Strength of Youth: Sabbath Day Observance


1) prepare a jar or box. Fill it up with things that you shouldn't do on Sundays and things that you could do on Sundays. Tell the children it is your Sunday box and you only want to have things in it that you should do on Sundays. Box items could include money(shopping), pictures of your family (family time), headphones (listening to good music), Scriptures, tennis shoe (sports), and so on.

8) Make a mobile to show the Sabbath day is a delight. You may want to make just one in advance to show the children and talk about the things on it. If you think your class would enjoy their own mobile, try making one that is simple with only Jesus, family, and the sacrament cup.
The Sabbath Is a Delight!

9) Saturday is a Special Day Hidden Picture Activity:

11) Make Sunday Cans the children can decorate by drawing on paper and taping it around the can. Then cut up (probably want to have them cut before class) the Sunday activity ideas in this article and place them in the can.

12) Watch the video "Chicks and Hens" and discuss how keeping the Sabbath day holy is a commandment. The Lord will protect us when we keep his commandments.

13) Cut this church into three or four pieces and use it as a simple preschool puzzle.
