With Easter being a huge celebration, we know there are many activities for you to plan for your class. But don’t worry, Hope has you covered. Below, we have created 2 free downloadable worksheets to keep children busy during Easter and after. We have a spot the difference and colouring in worksheet.

Easter fell on the 9th of April this year and typically falls on the first Sunday after the Spring equinox. If your class don’t know the Easter story, now will be the perfect time to teach them.


The history of Easter

The history of Easter begins in the year that Jesus died, nearly 2000 years ago. Similar pagan celebrations took place around this time of year prior to Easter, and the first known record of people celebrating Easter dates back to 2 A.D. This is because Easter began as a pagan festival in the Northern Hemisphere to celebrate the arrival of spring.

Easter became associated with Jesus’ resurrection as Christianity progressed. As previously stated, pagan celebrations occurred around this time of year. In the first couple of centuries after Jesus’ death, the Christian church celebrated festivals and holy days alongside these celebrations.


The Easter story

The resurrection of Jesus is the foundation upon which Christian religions are built. Christians believe that Romans arrested Jesus because he claimed to be God’s son.

Pontius Pilate, a Roman governor, sentenced him to death, and his subsequent resurrection is thought to be proof that Jesus was, in fact, the son of God. According to the four gospels of the New Testament, those who believe in Jesus’ death and resurrection are welcomed into Heaven and given the gift of eternal life.

Christians believe Jesus’ ultimate sacrifice was part of a divine plan to save humanity. His death is thought to have repaired humanity’s strained relationship with God. This is known as the Atonement.

Teach your class the Easter story, so they can learn more about different religions and cultures. You can even show them this Easter video to watch at the beginning of the lesson.


Spot the difference free worksheet

We have created a fun, free downloadable ‘spot the difference’ worksheet for your class. With an Easter picture, see how many differences you and your class can spot. So, get your colouring pencils at the ready and get decorating! Can you find them all? Let us know, and tag us on Instagram and Twitter.
