What you will need:
Step 2: Make A Graph
Step 3: Share & Reflect
At the end of a math lesson I like to take a few minutes to share and reflect. Invite students to share their nature hunt results with the class by presenting their graphs. Encourage students to ask the presenter questions such as:

Planning a week filled with Easter activities that are fun and yet still educational? Well, here is another free resource that you can add to your collection for your math sessions this week.
These Easter 'What's the question?' cards are great to help your students create their own Easter themed math word problems.
How to use
There are 30 cards in this set. Hopefully, that should be enough for at least one card per student. If you have more than 30 students, you’ll need to either make an extra set of cards OR pair students for the activity (one card per pair).
Students pick one card at random and keep their card a secret. On the blank card (or piece of paper) they must create a math word problem that will equal to the answer on the card that they have. For example, “The answer is 3 bunnies” – They know that the math question they make must equal 3 and be bunnies.
Once they finish writing their word problem, they must write their name on the back and either hand back to you, place in a box or get ready to swap with another student.
Give the student made word problems (at random from a box or swapped) to other students. Each student must solve the problem given, and then find the creator of it to see if they answered correctly. Alternatively, you could complete the questions as a class and ‘check in’ with the maker of the word problem to see if it was answered correctly by everyone.

Easter Reading Mystery - Once Upon a Crime, Easter EGGpocalypse!
Easter Reading Mystery: Once Upon A Crime, Easter 'EGGpocalypse.'
NO PREP, just print and go!
- The main goal in this mystery is to encourage reading.
- The work involved to solve the clues covers skills such as comprehension, spelling, vocabulary, synonyms, cause and effect statements, that work with the reading passages.
- The discovery format requires a fill in the missing letter process to unlock clues.
- Reading the text is required to be able to solve the missing letters in words, sentences and statements.
- Each clue requires students to critically think to decide which suspects they can eliminate from their suspect list. The last suspect remaining is who is responsible for the Easter Eggpocalypse.
All of the reading passages are included in this original story that features your 'student detective' as the hero throughout.
With Easter nearby, I thought it would be fun to do a little number mystery with a simple egg twist! Use this idea as a:
The prep is easy, and I have already put together some clues sets for you to use if you wish. Continue reading to find the free download for this activity.
The AIM is for students to use the clues given to solve which egg is the Mystery Egg! The clues will require them to use their number skills to eliminate possible eggs until there is only one egg left standing. The last egg remaining is the ‘Mystery Egg!’
They will only get one crack at picking the right egg. So they must read the clues carefully and be confident about their answer before opening an egg or telling you which egg they think is the right one.
