Easter Peep Themed Inference Activity Includes:
Activity #1: What food does the peep want to eat?
I use this activity to work on inference, color identification, categorizing food (dessert, fruit, vegetable, snack), healthy vs. unhealthy food, hot vs. cold food, compare/contrast, and inference.
Activity #2: Memory (3 options of play)
OPTION 1: Print and laminate peep boards and food choices. Cut apart the food choices and place face down in front of the students. Take turns selecting a food card and placing it with the corresponding peep. Example: Student selects milk. “What peep liked the color white and cold drinks?”
Note: This was designed as the easiest level. Each food card has the corresponding peep depicted.
OPTION 2: Same as OPTION 1; however, corresponding peeps are not depicted on food choices.
OPTION 3: Print and laminate OPTION 3 & OPTION 2 boards. Cut images apart and place face down in order to play a classic “memory” type game. Example: Student turns over the blue peep. “What food are you looking for?” Student turns over another card to make a match.
Activity #3: Color Sorting
OPTION 1: Give each student a peep board. Students take turns naming a needed food item depicted on his/her board. The student must answer a question about the food item before placing it on his/her board.
Example Questions: What color is (food item)?; When would you eat (food item)?; Do you like to eat (food item)?; What might you eat with (food item); Is (food item) a fruit, vegetable, snack, drink?; Is (food item) a cold/hot food?...
OPTION 2: Give each student a peep board. Place the food cards and the GOOD/BAD BUNNY cards face down on the table. The students take turns selecting cards in order to match food items depicted on peep boards. The student selects a card, names the item or color + item (red apple) before placing it on his/her board. If a GOOD/BAD BUNNY card is selected, follow directions written on card (take another turn/loose turn). Continue play until all boards are complete.
