THINGS TO KNOW:
*The first two sets of questions are on a lower level, the next two are mid-level, and the last two are on a higher level.
*You may want to label the back so you know which set is which
*You do not have to use each set of questions if you want to have larger groups
*You can give each student an answer sheet or one per student.
*I would cut it all out once and laminate it so it can be used from year to year
*Don’t forget to buy your students plastic eggs with a treat inside
DIRECTIONS FOR THE GAME:
*The students need to be placed into six teams
*Each team will have ten ELA questions they must answer in order to get their treat
*Each team will receive an answer sheet for them to record their work on as they go
*The teams have to complete their first question correctly in order to receive their next and so on and so forth
*Once the teams have completed all of their questions correctly they earn their final clue which is a fun rhyme
*The teacher can reward each group with a plastic Easter egg with a treat inside
