10 Sites for Teaching About Easter
Spring appears to have sprung here in the Maritimes, more or less. However, any local will tell you that more winter weather is not out of the question. One thing we can be certain of this time of year is that the Easter bunny is on his way. Easter is essentially a religious holiday, but, like Christmas, has become entrenched as a cultural holiday in many cultures around the world. Students will certainly want to share in this celebration of the arrival of spring. Here are a few sites to help you bring Easter to the classroom:
ESL Holiday Lessons - This site has a great list of April holidays, with lesson plans to go along with each.
Larry Ferlazzo’s ‘Best Sites’ - As always, Larry Ferlazzo has some great links to authentic materials to use in the classroom.
Easter Exercises, Games and Worksheets - ESOL Courses has a great page dedicated to Easter. Lots of great ideas here!
Easter Worksheets (and more) - Bogglesworld comes through again with some great Easter printables. I particularly like the ‘Easter Egg Hunt Activity Pack’.
