This twist on traditional task cards includes everything but the eggs!
It has 22 math problems, from a range of 6th grade CCSS standards. Topics include:
- fractions (add, subtract, multiply, and divide)
- surface area
- dot plot
- box plot
There are also blank slips that you can write your own questions on, a blank answer page students can record their answers on (though my kids used notebook paper to save on printing), and an answer key.
I tried to use numbers that would not require a calculator, but I did allow my students to use their calculators and math notebooks if they needed them.
Math Easter Egg Hunt:
1. Cut apart the slips and put one into each egg. Hide the eggs in the room.
2. Students find the eggs, solve the problem, and then rehide the egg.
3. Once students solved all of the problems, I checked their paper (I had the first few students to finish become checkers, too). If students scored less than 75% (17 of 22 problems), they had to find those eggs and resolve the problem. If they scored 75% or higher, they received an egg with candy in it.
*I'd recommend having students rehide the eggs where they found them, so that it's clear which eggs they've already "cracked" (: For example, they may know that they already solved the one in the yellow chair, but if someone rehides it on top of the filing cabinet, they'll try to solve it again.
