Where Did the Easter Bunny Come From?

  1. Have your students write a story about where the whole idea of an Easter Bunny came from.
  2. This should be a creative writing story, as they should not have any background information on the subject, other than what they may already know.
  3. Encourage your kids to brainstorm ideas before they begin to write.
  4. You may want to have students work in pairs to write this story.
