Easter Edition

A Very Special Easter

I LOVE this 3:35 minute video of little kids answering questions about Easter and its meaning.The video uses child-like drawings and spelling. I think it would work for any grade level. If you don't use it in class, you might want to just watch for yourself to bring a smile to your face!

The Legend of the Trees--God's Purpose for Us

This 23-minute animation, teaches children and adults alike the significance of their role in God's plan.
The Legend of The Three Trees is a timeless retelling of the classic folktale of three distinct trees, each with its own hopes, dreams and aspirations of greatness.
But their dreams don't seem to come true. The trees despair about their existence until they each finally interact with Jesus Christ--one at His birth, one at His ministry and one at His ultimate sacrifice. They learn that God has a special purpose for each of them in His kingdom.

Correlating the Easter Story in the History Class

Designed like pages from a textbook, this lesson is easy to use with students. It paraphrases the story of the death and resurrection of Jesus as told by Luke. It highlights phrases commonly used in the English language, and it shows the story's relevance to history, art, music, and language arts.

This is a fairly challenging crossword puzzle, especially since there isn't an answer sheet! Still, it might be a good filler for bigger kids. Good luck!
