Eggs ideas, books, resources, and crafts {Get Organized to Teach About Eggs}

Easter is coming and kids are excited, but in many schools teachers can not teach an Easter Thematic Unit. Focusing on an EGGS Thematic Unit instead will make the most of the student's motivation using a theme that can easily integrate science, math, reading, and writing. And of course there are lots of fun egg craft activities for kids to create that complement student work on a bulletin board. This post will provide you with egg lesson ideas, egg themed writing projects, activities to use for guided math or math workshop, egg read aloud book titles and printable resource suggestions for elementary classrooms to use in the spring.

The author of Curious Little Kid has a great article full of reading and fine motor ideas, math and science activities, art projects and things to do for gross motor and sensory skills. These are built around using an egg theme for reinforcing the letter E so they can be adapted for the littlest learners in preschool and kindergarten all the way up to third grade, fourth grade or fifth grade (and of course first graders and second graders would love them to. I especially love the format she uses for showcasing the egg lesson plans.

Plastic eggs are perfect for making hands-on activities to use during Guided Math or Math Workshop. They can be programmed with word study to practice spelling. You can even create self checking centers by putting questions or equations on the outside and placing the answers on the inside of the egg.

STEM projects are crazy popular right now and eggs are a great source of inspiration for engineering design challenges. You could challenge your students create a carrier to survive an egg drop. I use these STEM JOURNALS to record the engineering design process for all STEM activities in my classroom.
