This activity is great for spring and Easter writing! Super for a focus on descriptive writing, details, word choice, and/or adjectives!
Students are given an empty egg. Have students design and color their eggs. They can draw patterns, lines, shapes, scenes, etc. If you are working on a specific book or topic, you could have students design their eggs based on that material - for example, they could draw their favorite event in the story or from an important date in history. While students are working, try to make it so no one can see anyone else’s work - this will make the guessing part more authentic. Next, students must describe their eggs in one of six writing prompts (you choose which works for your class). Lastly, as a concluding activity, hang the eggs and randomly read the description papers - see if students can match the descriptions to the eggs!
Included in this product are:
- 1 page description with detailed directions on how to conduct this lesson in your classroom
- 1 blackline egg
- 6 writing papers (2 easy, 2 harder; 1 for each level that allows for paragraph writing and 1 for each level that allows for either 5 individual clue sentences or 5 phrases depending on what you need for your students, also included are 2 with dotted lines - one for longer writing and one for sentence descriptions)
- 1 bulletin board topper sign so you can easily display your students' work
My students love this project; I know yours will, too!
Thank you so much for looking! :)
