Creating a Jesse Tree

MFL and RE are working together to build a giant Jesse Tree with Year 7 pupils, but what exactly is a Jesse Tree?
The Jesse Tree represents the family tree of Jesus. The name is taken from Isaiah 1:1 in which Jesus is referred to as a shoot coming up from the stump of Jesse, the father of David. The ornaments or pictures on the tree represent Jesus’ ancestors, and events leading up to the birth of Jesus. How many of the above symbols can you recognise?
