Enrichment Activities
You may use one or more of the following activities any time during the lesson or as a review, summary, or challenge.

1. Explain that when Joseph Smith translated the Book of Mormon, he said the words out loud, and his scribe wrote the words down. Sometimes Joseph and the scribe were separated by a divider and could not see each other.
Put a divider in the middle of a classroom table or the floor (for example, two children could hold a small blanket or sheet or a large piece of heavy paper). Have a child sit on one side of the divider and slowly read a short verse from the Book of Mormon while a child sitting on the other side of the divider writes down what is being read. Then have the scribe read what he or she wrote so the child reading the scripture can be sure it was written correctly. (You may want to have more than one scribe so all children who want to participate can do so.)

In essence, they are creating future defectors.

Remember at that age Mormon Bastard Jesus is still pushing his rival Santa Claus

How many Christian faiths are this dishonest in terms of omissions? I can remember being very dissappointed in a member for believing a hat in a rock was the mode of translation.

The Church education system is just absolutely disgusting. I am so disappointed that no one has the courage to change this garbage.

Why isn't anyone commenting on this exercise explicitly teaching a tight translation method?

As a side note, did anyone else notice how you can remove the comma from the thread title to make a commentary? "How the BofM was translated for 8 year olds."
