Come Follow Me Bar Graph Lesson Plan

*Downloads are available at the bottom of the post when signed in!*

The logical learners in your Primary room will be completely engaged as you introduce the Come, Follow Me bar graph that represents the notes of the song.

You can fold under the bottom line with the words, or leave them visible – it’s completely up to you. I like to start by asking the kids what they notice about the chart.

They’ll give a lot of really great answers, that might surprise you! But if for some reason you hear crickets instead, you can start the conversation by asking questions like:

  • Are all the bars the same height?
  • Why are some higher than others?
  • Why might some of the bars be a different color?
  • Do you see any patterns?

The pattern has a higher bar, for higher notes, and lower bars, for lower notes, following each individual note.

The yellow bars point all the lyrics that talk about the Savior. Talk about any repeats, patterns, or correlations the kids notice!

We’ll sing through the song a few times as we are watching how the bar graph and patterns align and talk about the graph between each.

As an extension activity, you can tell the kids to move their hands, or their mouths, like the bar graph shows. A wide open mouth for tall notes, for example, and a more close mouth for lower notes.

  1. This is great! Thank you! Are you using all 8 of your Come Follow Me activities in January? Are some for just Sr Primary and others for Jr Primary?

    • Nope — you can go see my January singing time plan!

      I teach 3 program songs throughout the month, which lets me teach the song more than just once. If you just teach Come, Follow Me in January they kids likely won’t be very familiar with it come the end of the year and the program! I also like to use more variety and shorter activities. Most of my ideas could easily stretch to fill the 20 minutes, but it’s much more interesting for everyone to have 2-3 shorter activities. 🙂

      I’ll use almost all of my lesson plans for both Jr and Sr with just slight adjustments. There are a few that are Jr/Sr only – such as Dropped the Pictures my Senior primary kids would probably just roll their eyes as me and not be amused, lol.

  2. I believe there needs to be a slight change to your Come Follow Me bar graph. You have “tread, for thus a-” all on the same pitch, but the melody actually goes down a half step from” tread to for”.. (from e to e flat) I love this printable! Thanks so much! You have so many great ideas.

    • Hey Renee, I usually only do flow charts just following the whole notes (not flats/sharps) otherwise it makes a much more complicated chart. Because it’s just the one half note, though, I went ahead and adjusted it! 🙂
