Preparations for the Passover Seder table. Jewish Passover traditions are described and the story of the Jews enslavement in Egypt, and the ten plagues during the time of Moses, is told in a short animated film. The significance of the foods on the Seder Plate is also discussed.
Useful to illustrate the tradition of celebrating Pesach and to recall the history behind it. Divide the class into small groups and provide material to create posters. Each group could focus on one key point, for instance, the seder, the family around the table, slaves and Pharaoh, the ten plagues, Moses, Matzos. All posters could then be put together as a big story book to share with other classes or to have as a reference in the school library.
