Engage your students with an Easter Egg Hunt using these leveled problems. Hide the eggs throughout your classroom, keeping them just visible to students so they can be found. Students are instructed to search silently for the eggs, to copy the problems found on each egg and then to return the egg to its original hiding place so the next student can find it. There are twelve eggs for each grade, third through fifth grade.
Once a child has discovered and written all problems down, they may return to their seat to work the problems and write the answers on the answer sheet.
The problems are numbered in sets from 1-12 and are leveled. Pages 3-6 are third grade level problems, pages 7-11 are fourth grade level problems, and pages 12-15 are fifth grade level problems. There are also four blank eggs for you to copy and create your own math challenges.
You could mix the levels of the problems as well to provide different levels of challenges. These could also be set up in a center for students to work independently or you could hide all the eggs. An answer sheet is also provided for hunting all 36 eggs.
I've done this activity with my class for several years and it's always a fun way to practice math skills and gather grades.
