3.1 Christian Resources: Apologetics – “Got Questions?”

The popular website, “Got Questions?” has prepared 3,800 answers to FAQs about the Bible and Christianity. As we approach the time when we celebrate the Resurrection and as several Bible-related movies hit the market, many of our neighbors, family, and friends will be reminded of the eternal questions of life.

3.3 Preschool and Kindergarten: National Water Day – March 22

This little activity (short enough for the wiggliest little ones) needs only water, cotton balls, and pie pans. Since you now know “Water Day” is ahead of us, you have time to search for other “preschool water cycle activities” or library books. And maybe the weather will have warmed enough to do some of this outside!
