Guiding Question: How can common questions be asked and answered?
Materials: None needed
Procedure: Review the story of Solomon from the scriptures above. Remind them that Solomon asked God for wisdom instead of wealth, power, or a long life. This was because He knew that wisdom from God was most important for his life. Because Solomon asked for wisdom, God gave it to him and also blessed him with wealth, power, and a long life. Remind students that God asked Solomon a question that he answered.
Divide students into pairs.Have them practice asking and answering common questions. Encourage students to focus on practicing asking questions that begin with who/where/why/when/what.
Additional Questions: How can questions be directed toward an object?
Supplemental Activity: Have students bring in an object that they value for a show and tell. During the show and tell, have the students watching ask the other student questions about their object.
