    Nephi Obtains the Plates

    I will go and do the things which the Lord hath commanded (1 Ne. 3:7).

    I feel reverent when I keep the commandments.

    Nephi obtains the plates because the Lord commanded him to do it.

    Read: 1 Nephi 3; 4:1–13, 20, 26 [1 Ne. 3; 1 Ne. 4:1–13, 20, 26]

    Instructions: Remove this page from the magazine, color the figures, and mount them on heavy paper; then cut out the figures and glue pieces of flannel on the backs. Read the scriptures listed, then retell the Book of Mormon story using the figures.
