Are you looking for a fun, exciting way to review for your upcoming state standardized test? Students never get tired of an egg hunt, and this is not only fun for students, but keeps them engaged and also helps them to review Common Core 4th Grade Language Arts and Reading standards.
The standards that are included are located on the second page of the packet and can be viewed in the preview. I have completed this activity with fourth grade students, and not only have they learned a lot, but it was a great review and a great teaching tool when we reviewed all of the questions after the hunt was over.
You will need 28 plastic Easter eggs to display around the classroom. This can also be used as a Scoot activity if you do not have the Easter eggs.
You will first cut each card and fold it and place in an egg. Then, you will hide the eggs around the classroom, school, or a designated outside area.
You will provide each student with an answer sheet. Then, you will allow students to roam around the designated area looking for eggs.
Tips to Remember:
Remind students that there should only be one person at an egg at a time.
Students must read the egg, answer the question, and then place the question back into the egg.
If you are working in partners, students must stay together at all times. There should not be more than one team member at a different egg. Everyone should be working at the same egg.
Students should not just work quickly. They should read carefully and take their time.
I remind students that it is not about how many eggs they find, but how many answers they get correct!
I usually bring all students a treat of some sort, and you can have an extra treat for the “egg winner.”
Remind students that there is No Running during the hunt.
Finally, HAVE FUN! This should be a fun activity for the students as well as the teacher. Enjoy!
