Bunnies, chicks, and eggs, oh my! It must be Easter time! Place this Roll and Graph Easter Math Activity in your math center and watch as your students have fun while working on early graphing skills. As an added bonus, they’ll work those fine motor muscles while coloring too!
Roll and Graph Easter Math Activity
This activity is suitable for Preschool and Kindergarten students. Use this math graphing activity in singles, pairs, or small groups!
When children work in pairs they can turn this activity into a race to see which Easter-themed picture wins first!
Let’s get started with our supplies.
- Easter Roll and Graph recording page (at the end of the post)
- Easter Roll and Graph printable die (at the end of the post)
- Easter Pocket Die printable picture cards (at the end of the post)
- Pocket Dice
How to Assemble the Printable Die
You have two options for using dice with this activity. You can use the included Easter printable die and assemble it on your own OR you can use the pocket die printable cards to place in a pocket die.
Assembly for the Easter roll and graph printable die is simple! I would suggest laminating it first. I think it’s easier to assemble when it’s laminated. Laminating also makes the die more durable.
Simply cut out the die along the thick black line. Then you’ll fold inward, along the dotted lines.
Keep folding up the die and tucking in the edges until it’s in a cube shape. Lastly, add a couple pieces of tape to secure the die.
If you’d rather not fuss with assembling the printable die, then use a pocket die (these pocket dice are my absolute favorite and what I use in math centers all the time) and print the pocket die picture cards.
Simply cut them out and slide them into the sides of the pocket die.
How to Use the Easter Roll and Graph Recording Sheet
If you choose to place this activity in your math center, be sure that your students have a solid foundation of graphing skills. If it’s been awhile then a quick reminder of how to graph will help!
Take the fun up a notch by placing a basket of crayons, colored pencils and markers in your math center so students can put their creative touch on their Easter graph!
Extra Fun Tip: Give students colorful stickers for graphing instead of coloring in the squares on the recording sheet. As an added bonus…this helps work those fine motor muscles too!
Time to Graph!
Students are expected to roll the die and then color in one square above the Easter-themed picture that matches.
The activity continues with the child rolling the die and coloring in the squares above the object rolled on the die.
The game is over when one of the Easter-themed pictures reaches the top of the graph first!
Turn this graphing activity into a race! In pairs, each child has his/her own Easter Roll and Graph recording sheet and they share a die.
Player #1 rolls the die and colors in the square on their own graph recording sheet.
Player #2 then rolls and records the picture rolled on their own recording sheet.
The game continues until one of the player’s Easter-themed pictures has reached the top of their own graph first!
