The Story of Easter Unit Study

Each time a holiday approaches I do my best to ensure that before we partake in the fun festivities that we talk about the real meaning for the holiday. However, when it comes to Easter, we don’t do the “normal” at all. You won’t find bunnies, eggs or chicks as part of our celebration. Why? There aren’t any bunnies, eggs or chicks found anywhere in the real Easter story.

When we celebrate holidays that have a Biblical history it is important to me that my children can make the connection to the fun part of the celebrations to the real meaning of the holiday. If the fun can’t be connected, then it isn’t part of our holiday celebration. I believe it is essential that our children learn the holiness of Easter. That is why I put together The Story of Easter Unit Study this year. I didn’t want to just read them the story from the Bible, I wanted to make it part of our homeschool journey.

It is my prayer that The Story of Easter Unit Study will not only be helpful to you, but that it will also make the story come to life for your kids. I’ve compiled all of the resources you’ll need to complete a unit study on the story of Easter.

Below you’ll find links to the Scripture passages to read aloud to your kids, movies that they can watch that retell the story (with enough great options for lunch time throughout the week before Easter), art depicting the Easter story, poetry and music about the story of Easter, crafts, printables and more!
