Teach Did Jesus Really Live Again? in singing time using this interactive poster!  The cleverly hidden pictures found in the song, gradually reveal themselves as the Primary sings.  Your Primary is sure to be WOWED!

If you’re not much of an artist (like me!) I recreated a digital poster for you to download and print!  However, if time is of the essence, keep scrolling for a few simplified variations below!

**UPDATE:  I wanted to let you know how this went in Primary…it was a HUGE success!  The kids were so quiet, attentive and mesmerized by the poster!  It was great!  Maybe it was due to my praying all week that my lesson plan wouldn’t fail!  The Lord never ceases to amaze me!  The poster took a little maneuvering but it wasn’t bad at all.  I’d definitely recommend doing this!

This interactive poster to teach Did Jesus Really Live Again? was originally shared on YouTube:

But before you delve too deep into a project, check out how it works first:

I recommend printing as a lustre mounted 20×30 print at your favorite print shop.  JPEG and PDF files are available to download, depending on your printer.
 
Also available is a tiled version to print at home (it prints on 8 sheets of paper/card stock to tape together).
 
Then you need these poster pieces that go to it:

Print on white card stock and cut them out.  Then I have a laminator that is more like a contact paper applier-machine that worked perfect for this project!

But packaging tape will easily work!  Or you can buy contact paper rolls at Wal-Mart for pretty cheap.  Just make sure to apply either tape or contact paper to both sides of your images.

Here are my strips, I spaced the images about 4 inches apart::

Upper Corner

  • question mark
  •  the number “3”
  • heart
  • question mark

Right Side

  • Yes!
  • Mary (in this order)

Bottom

  • Green arrow
  • fish
  • honeycomb
  • nail
  • spear
Then you need a big oval to make for the rock covering the tomb.  Get creative.  I found some thin cardboard around my house (I save random things for projects like this – anyone else?) then covered it with some gray card stock I had on hand.  It needs to be approximately 18×12 inches.
 
Then you need a brad to make the circle spin, and another brad to attach to the boy and girl. 
 
To hang, use heavy magnets.  The magnets are also helping my tombstone not fall over to the right and another magnet to hold up the girl and boy, so they don’t flop forward when they are revealed.

Did Jesus Really Live Again Singing Time Idea

As an attention getter, ask the children if they think Jesus lived after he died.  Then ask if they think they will live again after they die.  Tell them this song answers this question – a question that many people don’t know the answer too!  Have them listen as you and the teachers sing as you use the interactive poster.

Repeat again having the kids try to sing along as you move the pieces (I can simply slide them along with my fingers).  After doing it a few times, in between each image/phrase, you can stop and ask if they know what is coming next.

Did Jesus Really Live Again? Actions

Optionally, add in these Did Jesus Really Live Again actions (which have a great lesson plan too!):
  • Did Jesus really live again (hold hands out with palms up like asking a question)
  • Yes, when the third day came (hold up three fingers)
  • He wakened and he left the tomb (blink eyes and walk in place)
  • He called Mary’s name (cup hands around mouth)
  • Did Jesus come to those he loved (put hands over heart)
  • Yes, people touched his feet (bend over and touch feet),
  • And of the fish and honeycomb (wiggle hand back and forth like a fish swimming)
  • He did truly eat (pantomime eating).
  • And there were nail prints in his hands (point to hand)
  • And a spear wound in his side (point to side)
  • Did Jesus really live again after he had died (hold hands out with palms up like asking a question)
  • Oh yes! (nod head)
  • And so shall I! (point to self)

If you are really brave, have different children come take turns (but I’m not sure I’d recommend this unless you have a very small primary otherwise, there might be tears!).

At the end, bear testimony that you know Jesus was resurrected and lived after he died, as will we.

Did Jesus Really Live Again? Singing Time Variations

Omit the interactive poster and use the enlarged key-word images from the interactive poster, using the actions posted above.  Cut the pages in half.

Did Jesus Really Live Again Singing Time Interactive Poster Lesson Plan
Assign each class a page (or 2) with its associated action, then have them come up, place their picture on the board and teach the rest of the primary their action.  Have them sit down, then sing all the actions that have been learned so far.  Repeat with the next class until all the pictures and actions have been learned.
 

Go even simpler and assign each class a phrase to draw the images on the chalkboard and then teach their action.

  1. You have don it again, I love your poster, the pulley thing look fun, but I'n to i have the courage to do it. I love the options. Thank for coming up with a creative way to teach the children. I'm great full that we have Stake conference this sunday, I have extra time to make everything I need.

  2. Hi Natalie and Aaron,

    The only problem with laminating is you need a long continuous strip of plastic (you don't cut out the laminated objects) and the laminating sheets aren't long enough. Maybe there's another way to do it? I hope that answers your question.
