Note that this is a WEDNESDAY only activity. Several have asked if they could have this activity on a day other than Wednesday. The missionary staff involved in this activity are only available all together on Wednesdays.
#1) Provide a fun activity for the youth
#2) Increase the youth understanding of family history
#3) Help the youth learn to examine source documents and learn about the life of a latter day prophet
#4) Increase an understanding of how to frame questions in their mind, helping them learn what would be important to ask when interviewing a relative
#5) Help the youth understand how to write a "memory"
We can provide different activities for you if you like and on different days, such as a "discovery" activity. There may also be other activities that you would like us to offer as well. Please suggest some alternatives, and we'll see what we can do for your group.
