An Angel Came to Joseph Smith Skits
I created 4 mini skits – one per verse for An Angel Came to Joseph Smith. Each of the verses discuss a different group of people:
- Joseph Smith
- Lehi’s Family
- Nephites & Lamanites
- People Today
For this fun activity, you can focus on a single verse and let each different class in Primary practice and prepare a skit. Then, they can each take a turn coming up to perform their version of the skit. The mini skits I created do have a sample skit they can follow, or let them come up with their own skit that fits the song lyrics.
Or, for more variety, plan to use this activity for reviewing the song (or learning and reinforcing the final verse) while you work on the skits. For that example, you’ll assign each of the verses you have learned to different groups in the Primary room.
I will be teaching 3 verses of this song – verse 1, 2, and 4. I’ll be printing out 2 copies of those three skits and let each of the classes take on one of the skits of their choice (making sure each verse is covered at least once). You could also just make larger groups and run through each skit just one time – do whatever works best for your Primary size!
I’ll start by giving directions to the kids and breaking them into groups. I’ll let them know that I will sing through the verses 3 times while they work on getting their script ready to go. If they finish early, they should return to their seats and sing with me so I can know when everyone is ready to preform the skits!
Then, we’ll sing through the verse specific to each of the skits while the class performs their mini skit. Challenge the Primary to go home and present their skits with their siblings after church or for Family Home Evening!
