Easter

The Magic of the Rainbow: Using Easter to Teach Colors!!

INTRODUCTION:

  1. Have the students write the words (see attached worksheet): egg, chicken, happy, easter, basket, pink, blue, yellow, purple.  (Note 1)
  2.   Have the students match the pictures: egg and chicken, basket and hay, color names and the matching colors. (Note 2)
  3. Review the colors of the paints.

ACTIVITY:

  1. Have eggs for all of the students and adults who will participate in the activity.
  2. As you paint your eggs, repeat the names of the colors.

Easter Egg Hunt

Prep time: Several hours (you need to really love Easter). Actual egg hunt time: however long your school’s lunch break is.

PREP THE EGGS!

There are plenty of black and white easter egg templates online of varying complexity, so choose a few you like and print multiple copies. Colour them like your life depends on it. Number the eggs. Laminate the eggs so that they can withstand the toughest of conditions! You want your eggs to be like Bear Grylls.

Easter Egg Hunt Game

This is a great game that can supplement a full Easter lesson or stand alone at the end of a lesson for a quick Easter intro. Pass out the "Easter Egg Hunt" worksheet to each student  (no longer available - make your own!). Be sure to tell the students to NOT write their names on the sheet. Go over the sentences on the worksheet and then have the students fill in the blanks. For JHS, I use the following sentences:

1. I play __________________________(sport, music instrument)
