How to Teach Math with Easter Eggs

Please share. It makes me happy. :)

 

Plastic Easter eggs were everywhere and grew in number each year.  There were the eggs purchased for the first Easter baskets.  Then there were the eggs from multiple years of Easter egg hunts.  The rest of the eggs came from friends and family bearing Easter gifts.

 

The eggs were saved over the years.  It seemed silly to throw them away to only purchase more the following year. 

 

The eggs found a home in the attic until we started homeschooling.  I came across an idea on using objects for teaching math.  This was the perfect opportunity to put all those Easter eggs to another good use.

Most likely, you won’t be able to start using this teaching method right away.  It requires 5 flats of eggs and each flat contains 30 eggs.

 

Be sure to purchase flats with cardboard sleeves as covers.  This will help to keep the plastic eggs contained.

 

Gather all your plastic Easter eggs and number them.  You will have 150 slots to fill.

 

Place the eggs in the flats.

 

Your children can now begin using the eggs as manipulatives when learning addition, subtraction, place value, grouping, multiplication, and division.
