Try this no-prep activity that’s so fun and can engage your logical thinkers, visual learners, and help represent the words to teach the children in a meaningful way how we Feel the Savior’s Love! With a word map, you’ll link the lyrics to one key concept in the song.
I Feel My Savior’s Love Word Map
What is a Word Map?
Remember those bubble charts you made in school to help you create an outline for your essays?
They would start with one key concept or idea and then break off into sub-topics and then finally into individual points under each topic.
That’s what you will do with a word map, but working backward!
Identify what the main concept or idea of the song is. Then, find what words or ideas are demonstrating that concept. For this song, it was a cinch!
It’s all about how the Savior shows his love to us with several great visual examples the kids can easily relate to if we break it down with this thoughtful activity!
How to Play:
- Sing through I Feel My Savior’s Love (flip chart here) before starting the activity.
- Ask: What is this song about? (Answer: The Savior’s Love!) That’s right – this song is all about the Savior’s love for us. Let’s put this heart up in the center. I want you to look for ways the song says we can feel his love!
- Each time you sing through the song, add one more picture. Use tape or magnets to post the picture up on the whiteboard, or have a Primary friend help you do so, then draw a big thick line connecting the two.
- Continue through the song until you’ve connected all four additional pictures to the center heart.
- At the end of the activity, ask for what ways the children feel the Savior’s love for them. Share a brief testimony of how you’ve felt the Savior’s love.
Challenge activity: Instead if bringing in pictures, you can have the Primary kids help you draw them and suggest easy drawings for world, warms, see, and freely gifts, such as the clipart I’ve picked below.
