Lehi, Lehi, What Do You See? Learning Time with Boats

Wednesday, November 28, 2018

I read Lehi, Lehi, What Do You See? to my kids and then flipped back to the pages about Nephi seeing a boat. I explained to my kids about how God instructed Nephi on how to build a boat and that his family was commanded by the Lord to travel to the promised land. I also explained that God can help us do things and provides a way to follow his commandments. After the mini-scripture story lesson, we did some activities related to boats. Here's what we did:


1. We filled a tub with water and added plastic boats. Next, we dropped marbles in the boats to see how many it would take for them to sink. This activity is based on an activity in the book, More Than Counting.

2. We discussed that boat begins with B. We practiced writing the letter B and colored a boat.With coloring, we have been working on coloring in the lines.

3. We colored a worksheet with big and small boats. My kids worked on differentiating sizes and coloring the big boats blue and the small boats brown.

4. I created a worksheet with various objects and my kids circled/sorted the ones that start with the letter B.

5. We practiced cutting on a straight line to an image of a boat.

6. I also cut out pieces of a boat and my kids glued them onto a black sheet of paper and stamped "water" onto the picture with washable paint and a paper tube.

I created a free printable so that you can do some of these fun "learning" activities with your kids. To download the packet, click here.
