Remember the purpose of teaching Primary 4 Lesson 45: The Book of Mormon Is a Witness of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ (Easter) is to teach that the Book of Mormon is another account of the Resurrection.

The Christ Centered Easter Countdown from the Dating Divas is packed full of great printables and goodies.

Use this Color You Own Easter Advent in class. You can read scriptures in the Book of Mormon then add it to the scene or send it home as homework for the week.
