The last few days have been filled with conversations about Easter and Christ's resurrection. I love talking about this with first graders. They have such open hearts and tend to be very passionate about their faith.
One way we talked about it, is by reading The Legend of the Easter Egg. I love these stories. They turn every day objects into reminders of God's amazing love. This story uses an egg to remind us that Jesus broke free from the tomb and gave us new life just like a bird breaks free from a shell with new life. To go along with the story we made the project you see below. They had a lot of fun with their pictures and they are now hanging in our classroom.
