Understanding Christianity Unit 1.5 Why does Easter matter to Christians?

To Begin with 

If possible, begin by going on a ‘Spring walk.’  The children can be detectives looking for signs of spring which can be recorded in drawings and writing. Think about and draw the ‘before’ and ‘after.’ e.g. A tree – bare branches (looks dead), buds – alive with new leaves. What happens next? A flower bud – a brown seed/bulb, stem, buds, flowers and leaves. What happens next?  The cycle begins again.

 

 

 

Plant a variety of seeds and bulbs with the children and watch them grow and transform. Watch a film clip showing the growth of a seed. There are several on You Tube.

Before planting take time to look at the bulbs and seeds, this tiny, brown thing that is going to grow and transform.
