## Easter Egg Counting Activity

To create this simple Easter egg counting activity, you will need:

• Egg carton
• 12 plastic Easter eggs
• Permanent marker
• 78 pennies (or mini erasers, anything small)
• small bowl

## Step 1 –

To begin, use a permanent marker to number each plastic Easter egg with numbers 1-12.

Place the eggs in an egg carton. Add the pennies to a small bowl.

## Step 2:

Next, invite students to count out the appropriate number of pennies to add to each Easter egg!

When they are done, there should be no pennies leftover in the bowl.

(*Remember, you can use mini erasers or alternative items like beads if you prefer.)

## Step 3:

Once the students have counted out all of the pennies, they can practice early addition skills by choosing 2 different eggs and counting out the total number of pennies in both.

Use a mini whiteboard to record the results. Yay for quick and easy learning activities!!
