What is Easter?

With our What is Easter? lesson plan, students learn about the origins of the Easter holiday and about its symbols, significant terms, and celebrations.

Our What is Easter? lesson plan teaches students all about the Easter holiday, including its origins and how it’s celebrated today. During this lesson, students are asked to identify and mark relevant dates on a calendar and create a poster about the Easter holiday. Students are also asked to use their creativity to decorate a picture of an egg and imagine and it will be used for the annual White House Easter Egg Roll.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to explain the religious and secular origins and traditions of Easter and identify the various symbols and meanings related to the holy day/holiday.
