Compiling the eggceptional list of eggucational activities really got me brainstorming. Here are the descriptions of my personal additions!
Pick an egg, say the animal sound and have the child choose the picture of the animal that says that sound.
Match the beginning letter sound with the picture.
Match the geometric shape with the number of sides.
Match the picture with the word.
Work on division skills by sharing eggs equally amongst a specified number of people. Work on classification by sorting eggs by color and graphing the results.
Find rhyming words and put them together. Extend this activity by asking them to add another rhyming word to the pair.
PRIMARY GRADES K-2
Match the shape with the correct name. Incorporate a variety of geometry terms such as acute angle, line, vertices, etc.
INTERMEDIATE GRADES 3-5
Match Equivalent Fractions
Match a mixture of decimals, percentages and fractions. This is an incredibly valuable skill in the “real world”!
Really challenge them by doing this mixed math activity. It can be adapted to any academic level and really gets them thinking in different ways.
Help reinforce memorization of states and capitals.
Make big numbers by placing varying digits on each egg half. Have students grab any 2 halves and put the egg together to create a new number. Have them write the number out, emphasizing proper comma placement and then read the number aloud. You can even make it into a game by seeing who can make the highest number.
