Easter offers so many opportunities for learning activities and many of them can be found on abcteach! Whether you want to practice core subjects, do arts and crafts, use hands-on activities to learn, or learn about the spiritual significance of Easter, there are plenty of activities right at your fingertips.
One of my favorite tools to use with a variety of activities is a basket of plastic Easter eggs that I can find at my local thrift stores. I fill the eggs with tasks that I want the students to do. I usually make them take one egg at a time, complete the task, close the egg and take a new one. The eggs are numbered so they can check them off until all the tasks are completed. The movement helps them stay focused and they enjoy a sense of competition to see who can finish first. Here is a great example; you could cut out each line from this Easter word scramble and put one in each egg…or make your own word scramble using the abctools!
