Tip for earning from home during the pandemic
You will need to prerecord your presentation or present it via video conferencing. If your family is having Sabbath worship at home and you have siblings in this age group, you can present it live for them.

Doing this could also contribute to the completion of the Christian Storytelling honor!

You could also include this as a way to communicate the "visual" requirement for many of the newer nature honors.

b. Use LEGO as part of a school project.

7. Write a 250-word paragraph, or in a 3-5 minute presentation to your group or club, tell how you can use LEGO to witness to those that don’t know about God.
