Printable File which includes templates for Easter Eggs to use as a library activity. Classroom teachers and librarians will love setting up this easy book egg hunt. Just print, cut out, and pass out the eggs.
The students will love "hunting" for books by following the directions on the eggs. I use this as a review activity over locating books in the Everybody (Picture Book), Fiction, and Non Fiction sections of the library.
Directions: After passing out an egg to each student, students work individually or in pairs to find a book described by their egg. Students can find the books by browsing the shelves or using the catalog. I have them use a shelf marker to hold the book's spot. After some time for the egg hunt, the students gather back together to share their findings. I have them share their books with each other and also their "ah-has" about the arrangement of the library. Some students then choose to check out the book they hunted and some choose to find something else. Using the shelf marker ensures they can put the book away correctly if they choose not to check it out.
Examples of egg prompts: Find a realistic fiction book that looks interesting; Find a book in the Everybody K Section that you would like to read;Find a book in the Nonfiction 600s section that looks interesting.
