Egg-stra Great Easter egg ideas!

My class did a cute (and educational) Easter egg activity today.  This activity was mainly from the fabulous mind of my co-worker and friend, Brooke.  We found some Easter egg coloring sheets and wrote decimals on each egg.  The kids colored the eggs, cut them out, and ordered the eggs from least to greatest.  Then they glued their eggs onto a sentence strip.  They turned out really great!  You can make this activity work ordering whole numbers, sequencing story events, and putting words into ABC order.

Another co-worker and friend, Michelle, did this egg-cellent math activity with her students last year.  She filled plastic Easter eggs with brightly colored candies and hid them around the classroom.  After her kids found an egg, they had to write which fraction of their candies was blue or green or red, etc.  Of course, the kids loved eating the candy after they finished!


  1. I love this idea!! :D I'm so glad to have stumbled across your blog. I'm in my 4th year of teaching 4th grade.
