1. Primary 5 Lesson Cards (Handout Idea)

2. The Golden Plates

3. To introduce the lesson, invite the class (as a whole) to help you list things you would need to do to prepare for:

a. A new school year (shop for supplies/clothes, attend orientation, receive a priesthood blessing, etc.)
b. A big test (study, attend all your classes, turn in your homework, etc.)
c. A birthday party (send invitations, prepare games/decorations/food, etc.)

Stress the fact that preparation is necessary for a desirable outcome.  Joseph Smith prepared for years to receive the plates until the Lord felt he was ready.

4. Help the children make a card as shown.  Tell the class that the angel Moroni told Joseph that the gold plates were hidden in a hill near Joseph's home.  They were buried in the ground under a big rock.  Lift the flap.  Tell the class that Joseph found the plates in a stone box under a rock.
