Egg-cellent way to teach money

April 9, 2012

Got a few leftover plastic eggs? Recycle them in the classroom while you let your students practicing counting change. We saw this fun activity on the website E is for Explore and we were drawn to it because we thought it would be easy to differentiate content by simply using a color as a code. The most complex “problems” might be contained in pink eggs, orange eggs might have only two or three coins each, and so on.

    I love using plastic eggs in my classroom during the Easter season. The kids love the surprise of what they will find inside. This year one of our literacy centers featured an activity that I called “Scrambled Eggs” where the task was using the letters inside of the egg to unscramble the spring word. Each egg held all of the letters to a different word. Its a challenge in grade one but they loved it!
