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.
