pyramid of greatness: word of wisdom

i had the opportunity to teach a lesson on the word of wisdom at achievement days this past week
the word of wisdom was not a topic i wanted to take lightly but at the same time i didn't want to make it super serious for girls the ages of 8-11- hopefully this lesson turned out well.

- each of the bullet points were passed out among the girls
- i asked which bullet points belong under which head topics (ex: avoid sugar goes under Eating Right)
- then the girls would come up to the board and tape the bullets under the topic i called out (helped to make it more interactive)
- after each section had all the bullet points taped under we talked about each bullet (it was great hearing the girls opinions)
- added some personal stories and my testimony 
- done! 

here is the printout i used that the girls were able to take home:
