Awesome Math & Science Easter Activities

It is that time of year again! Time for jelly beans, eggs, bunnies and baskets! There are so many ways to use Easter excitement to keep your students engaged in classroom lessons.  Here are some of my favorites from around the web:

Math:

One of my favorite activities this time of year is a Math Egg Hunt!  Buy a bunch of plastic eggs and stick problems inside the eggs. Hide the eggs around the room. Give your students a record sheet or a piece of notebook paper and let them hunt and solve math problems.  Print your own problems or get mine FREE here.

Teaching with Nancy has a coin counting egg hunt with a free printable too! 

 How about graphing yummy jellybeans?  SimplyKinder has a great post on sorting, counting and graphing jellybeans.  She has included FREE printables. Although aimed at a younger audience, I think the activities could easily be adapted for older students as well. 

 

Science:

Hop on over to The Science Penguin for great ideas using jelly beans!  She has simple, inexpensive projects for investigating solubility, physical properties and tower building (stem).

How about launching Easter Egg Rockets?  Check out this post from The Stem Laboratory for an egg-citing  lesson on chemical reactions. 

Got Peeps?  The Frugal Navy Wife has 5 experiments with Peeps on her blog!  These experiments will be sure to keep your students engaged!
