Three ideas to teach about Joseph Smith and The First Vision! Ideas for all ages!


Here are three ideas that you can look through to help you teach the importance of Joseph Smith and the First Vision.

These are all tried-and-true teaching techniques that I used while teaching seminary, and these all come from previous posts/articles. I have just put them in one place for you to look through. 🙂


1- Make a scripture puzzle using Joseph Smith History

  1. My daughter’s YW leaders assigned her to teach the lesson on the importance of the First Vision. She was so excited to find your ideas and can hardly wait to use your Joseph Smith trivia game during her lesson tomorrow.

  2. The scripture puzzle (word strips) is so good that I’m embarrassed I had never thought of something like this. After 45 years of teaching seminary/institute, you would think I had seen it all. Not so. Thanks for helping me with some new tricks.
