Tonight's Family Home Evening is on Teaching our Children How to Use and Gather Information the Right Way, this will passing off Achievement #17 in the Bear Den Cub Scout Book.
Welcome everyone to Family Night
Sing: "Choose The Right" pg 239 Hymnal
Have a member of the family member say the prayer
Discuss any family business
Scripture: Read and Mark: Proverbs 18:15
Article of Faith: # 1 "We believe in God, the Eternal Father, and in His Son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost." (Continue helping family members memorize the Article of Faith and understand its meaning)
As a family decide on a good TV show to watch together as a family. (Discuss what kind of shows we should watch. Also, what we should do if a show comes on and is something we should not be watching.) Have some yummy treats for the show. After the show ask these questions to each family member:
- What did you like about the show?
- What did you learn?
- What didn't you like?
- What would you have changed?
Play a game of charades with your family. Explain that during the came they are going to have to guess what the word is, by gathering information from the actions that will be done to describe the word. The person who is describing the word can not speak at all. Use the cards from the printable below and act out those words. Discuss with your family the different ways you can gather information. (ex. reading it in a book or newspaper or online, listening, watching actions or body movement, etc)
Discuss as a family how getting and giving facts fits into the parent's jobs and with the children at school.
How do they get the facts they need?
-Does someone tell them directly, or over the phone?
-Do they read it on paper, in books, or from a computer screen?
-What do they do with the facts?
-Do they pass the facts along to others?
Bear testimonies on How Using and Gathering Information the Right Way will help us keep Heavenly Father's commandments.
Close with a Family Prayer.
