Easter egg hunts are so much fun! Does your school host an egg hunt? When I taught Kindergarten we always did a big egg hunt with all of the kids and it was so much fun! Of course, we found a way to make it educational too! One of the things we did was have students graph their eggs by color with this Easter Egg Graph. Here are some of the skills the graphing hits:
- One to one correspondence
- Math vocabulary (more, less)
- Comparison of quantities
- Data collection and organization
Just download and print this graph right HERE. Next, hide some colored plastic eggs for your little one to find! You can do this outside or throughout a room in your house. After your little one find the eggs, sort them by color. Then color the eggs at the bottom of the graph and complete the graph. This is also great practice for reading color words!
Here are some questions you can ask little ones about their Easter Egg Graph to take the learning deeper:
- What color did you have the most of?
- What color did you have the least of?
- How many green eggs did you find?
- How many pink eggs did you find?
- How many orange eggs did you find?
- How many more _____ eggs than _____ eggs do you have?
- How many eggs did you find in all?
