IDENTIFY THE DOCTRINE (hearing a story): Use the illustration from page 123 in the nursery manual (see instructions on page 121) to tell the story of the Resurrection (see John 19:41–42; 20:1, 11–18). Explain that when Jesus Christ was resurrected, His body and spirit were reunited; this made it possible for everyone to be resurrected. Have the children say, “Because Jesus Christ was resurrected, I will be too.”

ENCOURAGE UNDERSTANDING (discussing feelings): On the board list words that describe how the disciples might have felt the day Jesus died (such as grief, sorrow, sadness, and despair). Have the children suggest opposites of those words (such as happiness, joy, hope, and faith), and write them on the board. Explain that these feelings are what the disciples felt when Jesus was resurrected. Discuss some of the blessings that come from knowing we will be resurrected (see Isaiah 25:8; Alma 22:14).

(sharing feelings): Write on the board, “I am thankful Jesus was resurrected because . . .” Invite a ward member who has had a loved one die to come to Primary and briefly share why he or she is thankful for the Resurrection. Ask the children if they know anyone who has died, and invite them to close their eyes and think of that person. Invite some of the children to stand and complete the sentence on the board and share what the Resurrection means to them.

    I am grateful for the opportunity to teach this lesson. It will be a difficult one for me teaching it though. I have lost a brother in Nov of only 36 years old. I am grateful for the Resurrection knowing that i will see my brother again.

  • Emily  - FHE lesson

    I am actually teaching this lesson one week late because of Stake Conference. Since it will be the week before Easter, I am going to have the kids make a FHE packet that they can use to teach the FHE lesson the following day and get their families ready for Easter. I will give each child the nursery lesson handout with Christ and the tomb, a glove (cheap food handler type) to talk about death and resurrection and the scriptures that go along with the lesson (older kids get scriptures, younger kids get scripture story copies)

  • Nadia Yaqoob  - Thanks for the Lesson!


    I am Nadia from Sialkot Pakistan from LDS Church meetinghouse. I love to work for my primary. No matters how much we are busy, we should share our experience and thoughts with kids so that they can learn more and more. If some1 become friend of me I will be happy.

    Thanks and Regards,

    Nadia Yaqoob

  • Carolyn Larson  - Would you like to be Primary Pen Pals?

    Dearest Nadia, how wonderful that you work in Primary! I am our ward's Primary President, and I, too, love it more than any other calling I've ever had. The children are so sweet, and I feel the Spirit so strongly when I am teaching them simple truths. Perhaps your Primary would like to become pen pals with our Primary here in Arizona, USA. We live in the Mohave Desert. In the summer, the temperatures sometimes reach 130 degrees F. How hot does it get where you live? If you would like our Primaries to write each other, please let me know. We would love it so much! Thank you. Carolyn Larson

  • Jill  - Resurrection Eggs

    I did a search and found an activity called Resurrection Eggs. Basically there are 12 eggs with little tokens in them representing the story of Jesus' death and resurrection. I changed them a little to focus more on His resurrection than His death. There are scriptures to go with all of them as well athough I haven't taken the time to look them all up yet.

    Egg #1- Bread: Sacrament bread “this is my body”
    Egg #2- Dimes: Judas and 30 pieces of silver
    Egg #3- Crown: They mocked him (Jesus knows what it is like to get teased)
    Egg #4- Rope: They took Him prisoner
    Egg #5- Cross: They sentenced Him to be crucified
    Egg #6- Nail: They crucified Him (He died for us)
    Egg #7- Sponge: They gave Him vinegar to drink (fulfilling a prophecy)
    Egg #8- Spices: They prepared His dead body
    Egg #9- Rock: They placed a very large rock in front of His tomb
    Egg #10- Empty: Jesus was not there
    Egg #11- Spirit: Jesus was visiting the Spirit World
    Egg #12- Glove: Jesus was resurrected and we ...

  • Jill  - Updated Resurrection Eggs Lesson

    Egg #1- Bread: Sacrament bread “this is my body”
    Matthew 26:26
    26 And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body.

    Egg #2- Dimes and Rope: Judas and 30 pieces of silver and they took Jesus prisoner
    Matthew 26:14-16
    14 Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went unto the chief priests,
    15 And said unto them, What will ye give me, and I will deliver him unto you? And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver.
    16 And from that time he sought opportunity to betray him.

    Egg #3- Purple Cloth: Symbolic
    Matthew 27:28
    28 And they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe.

    Egg #4- Crown: They mocked him (Jesus knows what it is like to get teased)
    Matthew 27:29
    29 And when they had plaited a crown of thorns, they put it upon his head, and a breed in his right hand: and they bowed the knee before him, and mocked him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews!

    Egg #5- Cros...

    I am using the coloring page from the nursery manual and I'm enlarging it so I can use it on the board. I'm then taking the coloring pic of Christ and going to make an outline on a page protector to demonstrate the resurrection. I am also going to use a poster board to make a larger tomb just a larger visual for our primary. I like the glove but sometimes this little guys need a little more. I think using the page protector will give them a better understanding.
