“Invite a few students to take turns reading aloud from Mosiah 2:23–25, 34.”

Instead of inviting several students to take turns reading aloud from Mosiah 2:23–25, 34, you could invite students to prepare to answer the following questions from the teacher material as they watch the video:

“Why might King Benjamin have referred to himself and his people as ‘unprofitable servants’?”

“What blessings have you received for which you feel indebted to God?”
