Egg hunt!!

Hi everyone! I am so excited for this post because the math lesson I helped co-teach today went awesome and the kids told us after school they loved it! :) The other title teacher and I thought it would be fun to have an easter egg hunt and graph the colors of eggs with kindergarten. (they are just learning about data) So I went out and got eggs and she got the candy! We hid them around the playground. And each child could find 6.
Then once they found their number, they came to the blacktop and sorted by color..

We then drew a big graph on the parking lot and they put each egg into one space. (we found out we had the same number of eggs for each color, except green...oops!)

Finally, we had them "walk" the graph and tell us how many eggs where in each category and which one had the least. :) How fun!


  1. What a hoot! I hide easter eggs, too, but I've only done it in the classroom. I like your idea of hiding them on the playground.



  2. This looks ridiculously fun. What a cool idea! I could see doing something similar with older kids, especially if you put a number inside each egg and then let them find the mean, median, and mode of the eggs they found!

    Thanks for sharing :)
