Resurrection Eggs Lapbook

March 20, 2008 at 3:00 pm (Uncategorized)

First off I must confess that I completely borrowed this idea from Michelle at SeekingJESUSTeaching KIDS. THANK YOU for the GREAT idea Michelle!  We had A LOT of fun reading this together after we got it made!

Here is the link to the
cover picture we used. The Bible verses on the right side are part of the printables (below) for the items to put inside.

HERE is the link to the printables for the Eggs we used. (Print 2 so you will have 12 of the BIG eggs.) 12 eggs is a lot to color, so I helped.  I kind of like coloring so this was fun for me!  LOL

Inside the Eggs
Inside each egg  we have the little picture of the items and a little explanation I wrote up.  I tried to tell the story at a young child’s level.  So I didn’t  quote exactly from the Bible.

HERE are the printables with each of the items to tell the story we used inside.

On the back we made a pocket to hold the mini books we made.  Here are the links to the mini books:

Salvation mini book

Old and New Testament mini books (We only used the New Testament one.)

Directions for folding the above mini books.

Life of Jesus mini book

Here is what we put inside the eggs to tell the Story. (You will have to copy this to a Word doc and resize to make them fit in the eggs if you want to use it.)

Branches When Jesus entered Jerusalem to celebrate Passover the people spread palm branches on the ground for His donkey to walk on.  They believed He had come to save them from the bad rulers of their Country.

30 Soon after He arrived in Jerusalem  Judas Iscariot, one of his friends agreed to betray Jesus for thirty pieces of silver!

Bread The disciples joined Jesus to have their Passover meal.  While they were eating He took the bread and told them “This is my body which is broken for you.”

Praying Hands They came to a place named Gethsemane; and He said to His disciples, "Sit here until I have prayed." Jesus knew that He was going to go through a very rough time and He wanted to spend time with His Heavenly Father preparing.

Whip While He was praying the time came when Judas betrayed Him!  Jesus was arrested and beaten with a whip.

Crown of Thorns They were very mean to Jesus and they made fun of Him by twisting a crown of thorns, they put it on Him.  They called Him “The King of the Jews”

Nails  After they made him carry His own cross up the hill they nailed him to the cross and left Him there until He died.

Dice The guards gambled with dice to see who would win Jesus clothes.

Spear To make sure that He was dead they poked Him in the side with a spear.  Clear liquid came out and they knew that He was dead.

Cloth  When He was wrapped in burial cloth and laid in a burial tomb.  A large stone was rolled over the opening to close the door.

Stone 3 days later 2 women came to the tomb.  Looking up, they saw that the stone had been rolled away, although it was extremely large.

EMPTY!!! The tomb was empty!!!  Jesus was not dead!  An angel said to the women, "Do not be afraid; for I know that you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified.  He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said He would”. He had come to save the people just as he said he would.  Not from bad rulers, but from sin.

    I so appreciate this activity! We have read Benjamin's Box and used the Resurrection eggs, but I was looking for other ways to reinforce the story! Thanks for your hard work, and for sharing!
