Easter egg activities aren’t just for little ones! You might not take older kids on an Easter egg hunt, but you can bring colorful plastic eggs into the classroom and jazz up any review activity with this free Easter Egg Showdown game!
Showdown is a cooperative learning activity in which students work first alone, and then with a team, to solve problems or answer questions on task cards. Easter Egg Showdown is a variation in which the task cards or slips of paper with tasks are tucked inside plastic Easter eggs. Students select an egg, open it, read the problem or task, and everyone on the team writes a response. In the final step, team members compare and discuss their answers. This review game is so much fun that your students will want to play it over and over!
The photo below shows two ways to use this activity, and both of them are included in my Easter Egg Showdown Freebie. The language arts activity has sentence slips to insert into the eggs. Students select an egg, read the sentence strip aloud, and everyone identifies the subject and predicate. The math activity includes small task cards with division problems to solve.
The Easter Egg Showdown packet includes teacher directions, student directions, the Subject and Predicate activity shown in the photo, Division Showdown task cards, and blank templates to create your own.
