Legend of the Easter Egg

Our girls loved The Legend of the Candy Cane so much that I decided to create a unit study and lapbook for The Legend of the Easter Egg. If you are interested in doing the unit yourself, you can go to Homeschool Share and download all of the mini-books and unit there by following this link. Everything is there in one nice location. :)

Some things that we’ll be studying in the unit include:

  • The anatomy of an egg
  • Science experiments
  • Faberge Eggs
  • Geography: Russia (Faberge from here)
  • Why chicken eggs are different colors
  • Sequencing
  • Similes
  • Vocabulary
  • Time
  • Symbolism of Easter egg
  • Celebrations of Easter (Good Friday and Easter Sunday)
  • Poetry
  • Communion
  • Weather: Freezing rain and hail

Here are a few pictures of my lapbook that I tested out first. :) There were too many pieces to have it in just one folder, so it ended up being a double lapbook.

    That looks great! Since we just got started on these, I can’t wait to do more of them – especially The Legend of the Candy Cane next Christmas. Are you doing another one next?
