Scripture Heroes: Story of David and Goliath

Today we talked about David and Goliath and how David had courage.  You can find his Scripture Hero Chart to download here.
 We watched the LDS Scripture video about David and Goliath (28).  We also watched Veggie Tales: Dave and the Giant Pickle which is a fun little version of the story and promotes self esteem.

We then measured about how tall Goliath was (nine feet) with yarn and hung it up so that we could compare how tall we were to Goliath's height.  I am around the same height David probably was so that gave them an idea of how much bigger Goliath was.

 A Year of FHE has a fun coloring page and great lesson.  We also talked about "Goliath's" that come into our lives (peer pressure, bad language, etc.) and how we combat those things (prayer, Holy Ghost, going to church, etc.)  This lesson has some great ideas.
 The boys had a great time acting out the story.  We used marshmallows instead of slings and rocks.

We had a pretty fun day talking about David and Goliath.

  1. Thank you so much for sharing your fun scripture hero ideas! I've been a bit stumped about planning new FHEs lately and had the thought of studying scripture super stars, I was still a bit stumped about where to start... until I found you on pinterest! Thank you, thank you for being an answer to a prayer and keep up the awesome work!
