Children can help their families find names for the temple and learn how to navigate the FamilySearch Family Tree at the same time! Here is a worksheet for children to use as they search for icons in FamilySearch.
I made this worksheet for a one-day family history camp for children at the Tucson Family History Center. My friend organized the event for the primary children in her stake. This was just one of the stations the children visited that day. They completed the worksheet with the help of youth family history consultants.

What do the icons mean? Here is an explanation:
Temple Ordinance Icons
Available temple ordinances: This green temple icon indicates that ordinances for a particular person are available to be reserved.
Needs Information: This orange temple icon indicates that ordinances for a particular person have not been completed but more information is needed before they can be reserved.
In Progress: This turquoise temple icon indicates that ordinances for a particular person have been reserved by someone else.
Record Hints: This teal icon indicates that an indexed record seems to match a person in Family Tree and could be attached to their profile. The record may contain more information about the person, and possibly additional family members who need temple work done.
Research Suggestions: This purple icon indicates that more research could be done to verify the identity of a person. For example, no sources are attached, there is a possible missing child, the person could have married again, etc.
Data Problems: This red exclamation point icon indicates that some data is missing or doesn’t look right. For example, the marriage year for one spouse shows the person as less than 12 years of age, the birth year for a child occurs after the mother’s child-bearing years, or a standardized date or place is missing, etc.
