Teach Behold the Great Redeemer Die in singing time using this simple lesson plan that utilizes mainly the Gospel Art Book. Your Primary will love recognizing this hymn when it is sung in sacrament meeting, typically as the sacrament hymn.
When teaching hymns, I typically only teach only the first verse. However, with this activity, if you want to teach all the verses, you easily can!

Thanks for all of your preparation! You are my weekly go-to and I appreciate your work so much. Just a small correction if this helps: your list of words in which the kids circle their hands is missing "great" and "law". And maybe other possible rhyming works are "sin & win". Thanks again!!
Hi Slogger Mom!
I always appreciate everyone helping me with my corrections! And I always have LOTS of them :). Thank you!
CAMILLE! I LOVE THIS! I've watched the video a zillion times to make sure I've got it all down. I just can't thank you enough for the time you take to give us ideas. Or in my case do all the thinking for me;) I've got the scarves, the words, and the actions written out, I think I'm ready to roll. Bless you for everything! And I LOVE the youtube channel.
This is so so good. Thank you!
I did this lesson with scarves today and it was beautiful and fun! Thank you so much for a hands-on interactive idea for a sacred hymn! This kids loved it and I had so much fun!
