When teaching hymns, like this one, Behold the Great Redeemer Die, I like to teach only the first verse. However, with this activity, if you want to teach all the verses, you easily can! I’ve also got a demonstration video demonstrating this entire lesson plan below!
For the attention getter, you’ll need to post these 3 pictures of the Savior:
All images can be found in the Gospel Art Book (or GAB). I bought my copy at the Distribution Center and have taken it all apart, placing each page in sheet protectors then in a big 3-ring binder for easy storing:
If you are interested in ordering one (or a few!) for yourself, or maybe for your primary to keep with your calling, you can order it HERE or at a Distribution Center near you.
Or you can download the images HERE and print at home.
Once introduced, I’ll be teaching the primary simple actions, demonstrated in my video here:
You can also find it HERE if you are having trouble viewing it above. Please like the video and subscribe to my YouTube channel so I know you find it useful and want more like it.

A fun idea also to do with this song is to coordinate with your ward music leader and have this song sung as the sacrament hymn within a few weeks after teaching it. Have the kids listen for it then come to you for a little reward of some kind (like a sticker or small piece of candy).
