We did our Easter Celebration as a newscast with a variety of characters taking part. We had a great piece of animation and music to set the scene and underline the newscast theme. We also did our notice sheet in the style of a newspaper, and for fun we used Roman numerals for dates and times!!
There were two cover stories for our newspaper. Here's the first.
Body Disappears!Early reports this morning suggest that the body of the Galilean rabbi, Jesus of Nazareth, has disappeared from his tomb.
The sometimes controversial preacher was executed last Friday by the Roman authorities. But early this morning rumours began to surface about the disappearance of his body.Government officials were not available for comment but religious leaders said, “We told Pilate that this might happen. This Jesus made some outrageous claims, one of which was that he’d rise from the dead. That’s why we asked for a guard on the tomb.”
When asked, one of the guards simply said, “He was there last time we looked!”Speculation is high about what actually happened. In the confusion of the early hours, one of the guards spoke about an earthquake, others spoke about strange men dressed in white wandering around the area immediately surrounding the tomb.Followers of the enigmatic prophet claim to know nothing of his whereabouts, but one early visitor to the site of the tomb claims that he might be alive and that they had spoken with him in the garden area outside the tomb where he is supposed to have been buried.
