        They were expecting him to rid them of the Roman empire.
        They didn't understand  that he was coming as the King of Heaven and Earth which
        is why later they yelled "crucify him".

    Activities:

    Listen to Handel's Messiah on Youtube
    and looked up the verses which were all from scripture.

    Amanda Bennett Easter Unit Studies for $5!





                 
      






    If you're getting ready for Easter like we are, now is a good time to snag a unit study by Amanda Bennett at a great bargin..$5.00!  These  are sooo easy for mom.  Just load 'em up on the Ipad and cuddle on the couch.  I print out the unit for each kid since I have a laser duplex printer.  I print it out in black and white and then at the end of the study we do the lapbook instead of doing it daily.  Everyday we grab our Ipad and our booklet and cuddle on the couch.  What could be easier???  Click on the picture of the unit you'd like to go see it :)

      Here's a link from her site that explains how to work them on ereaders and tablets.  Just click the picture above to get this great deal.
