Have a fun egg hunt in your classroom using pink, yellow, green, and purple plastic eggs to help practice graphing points on the coordinate plane!
*40 plastic eggs (pink, yellow, green, and purple - 10 of each color)
*Colored printer paper (pink, yellow, green, and purple - 2 of each color per class period)
*Cut out the 40 slips of coordinate pairs, fold in half, and place one inside each egg (pink paper corresponds to pink eggs, etc.).
*Hide the eggs around your classroom.
*Place each Quadrant color at a different desk or table.
*When a student finds an egg, they go to the Quadrant based on the color, graph the point that is inside their egg, and label the point (x,y).
*After all eggs are found and points are graphed, arrange the Quadrants to make a full coordinate plane to help students understand the order of the Quadrants and how the positive/negative signs relate on a graph.
