Egg Puzzles: Math Review


I know, I know.  It is kind of late for eggs, right?  Well....it has been a C.R.A.Z.Y. week.  Anyone else?  Stomach bugs (kids at school), state Praxis test (me), birthday parties (for my little 4 year old), cold weather, warm weather, local amusement park opening....the list could go on.

BUT....

I have had these eggs sitting around my house:


And FINALLY it struck me what to do with them!  Math review.  We have hit our standards but my little mathematicians need constant review.  So I created some games:





To play, our firsties will get a stack of eggs that look like this:


The eggs all fit one skill but the students will need to put the puzzles back together.

I still have some eggs left. But even if I run out, this would be super easy to make out of foam paper or even just construction paper. What other review games could I make?

  1. What a great idea, Em! You could also make contractions, or synonyms, or antonyms! Fun stuff!
    Enjoy your holiday! It sounds like you deserve a restful one!

  3. I do not know HOW I am so far behind on blog visits and reading; I hardly had time to write a post myself this week. Either way, I REALLY hate I missed this activity! I am pinning this so I can use it next year, though; Love these math eggs. Hope y'all are doing well!

  4. I loved this idea! I am a college student at Iowa State University. I am doing my very first lesson plan in front of a whole class later this week and the fraction eggs will be a part of it! Thanks for the great idea.
