Classroom Easter Egg Hunt

 
As a child, I absolutely LOVED hunting for Easter eggs! Every year, we'd go to an Easter egg hunt at the church and the local park. The Easter bunny would also hide eggs all over the yard. What fun! As a teacher, I wanted to put an educational spin on the traditional Easter egg hunt. So here's my idea... 

1. Create educational "tasks" or activities for students to do in the classroom. I've included a few examples below. Write the activities on slips of paper, fold them, and put them inside plastic eggs. 
2. Hide the eggs around the classroom before students arrive. 
3. Put students in groups of 2-3. Have each group hunt for ONE egg. As a group, the students complete the task inside the Easter egg. 
4. Then, the group finds a new hiding spot for their Easter egg. 
5. Repeat as many times as you'd like! :)
 This would also be a fun activity for "fast finishers!"
I've included 8 fun tasks below, as well as a blank page for you to create your own!
