PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a math activity to incorporate with Easter eggs. This is the way I have done the activity and it has gone GREAT every time! You can choose to change the math problems on the second page if you wish in order to align it with whatever math content you are going over.

Directions:

Buy a few big bags of empty Easter eggs. You'll need to use a sharpie marker to number eight of the eggs with the number 1, eight of them with the number 2, eight of them with the number 3... continue this pattern until the number 11 or 12, depending on how many students you have. Cut up the 8 math problems and put one in each of the eight eggs. Hide the eggs on the school playground or somewhere that is an appropriate place to put them.

Put the students in pairs. Each pair of students has a basket and a worksheet and they are assigned a number (1 through 12). Students are then responsible for finding the eggs that have their number on them. This detail is crucial because then they're not allowed to pick up every single egg that they see! If they pick up another group's egg, they just lay it back down and keep going until they find an egg with their group's number on it. They stop, solve the problem on their sheet, then continue. When they have found all 8 eggs, they come to you to check it off, then they get a prize! An additional idea is to have each egg have a candy prize like M&M's, skittles, jelly beans, etc.

The kids LOVE this activity! It's organized, seasonal, and fun!
