I will be introducing the song using the “Who Am I?” activity that Lois posted. I typed up each phrase on half sheets of paper. On the other half of each sheet of paper, I used Brittany’s definitions. Each phrase is mounted (I used a glue stick) on a random sheet of red, green, blue or yellow card stock, with space for the definition to be posted next to it during the activity in primary.
Before primary, post the “Who am I” sheet of paper on the board with a picture of Joseph Smith behind it. Face all the phrases face down so only the colored sheets of paper are revealed, but so they are in order around the picture, like so:
Have the kids try to figure out who the song is about by having children come up, turning papers over. Don’t let them throw out the answer until you have turned over all the phrases. Reveal the picture of Joseph Smith:
Then play the song Scotland the Brave (find details on my other lesson plan link above) and briefly read the history of the song:
Hang all the definition papers randomly across the bottom of the chalkboard:
Go through each phrase, one by one, having the kids pick the definition that goes with each phrase. For Jr. we’ll just add each definition as we learn each phrase or I may just omit them up all together. Pass out a rhythm instrument to the kids so they can tap out the rhythm as you sing (my other lesson plan link above has suggestions for rhythm instruments). Your completed board will look like this:
