More about the content
Easter is an important date from a social, spiritual and cultural point of view. It is a moment of reflection and respect, however, it has become an extremely commercial date. It is important that projects are carried out at school that aim to explain the real reason for Easter. These projects may involve storytelling, staging through theaters, films, using online games, among others. In this way, the child will have the opportunity to develop his capacity for critical thinking and reflection, his empathy and respect for others, without, however, losing his fantasy and pleasure for this celebration.
