Jesus Christ died and was resurrected
(Friend March 2005, suggestion # 4)

Class Presentation:

In advance, ask several children to come to Primary prepared to share a story of one of the witnesses of Christ's Resurrection (see below).
Review in your own words the story of the death of Christ using GAK pictures:

Ask the children to reflect on how Jesus's family and friends must have felt when He died.
Tell them that we have invited some of those "friends" to share with us the joy they felt when they knew Christ had been resurrected.

Using name tags, ask the children to share the stories of the following people who saw Christ after His Resurrection:

After the children have told their stories, sing "Jesus Has Risen" (p. 70).

Teach the principle of resurrection with the glove and hand imagery (see Primary 1 manual, p. 150, enrichment activity 2).

If there is time and with the approval of the Primary presidency, invite someone who has had a death in the family to share his or her testimony of the Resurrection.

Sing "Did Jesus Really Live Again?" (p. 64).

Remind the children that Easter is a celebration of gratitude for the blessings of the Atonement and Resurrection.
