a bad bad blogger. ( I wear a cone of shame)
I thought I would make it up to you with a
We are in the middle of our animal / habitat unit and
we did The Egg Hunt (can't say Easter or one of my kids couldn't participate).
it was a wonderful (if i do say so myself) camouflage activity!!!
You will need to get some eggs first...lots of eggs!!!
LOTS AND LOTS of the regular BRIGHT colored plastic snap eggs and
a few bags of these
I found these at Target
for about $5
Anyways ~ we had some wonderful parents come in and stuff the eggs for us.
The non camo got a simple treat (candy and erasers) and
the camo, which were much harder to find, got some real goodies inside.
We do Mustang Bucks at my school so some of them had that and others
had homework passes and double candy... you get the point)
we even hid 3 GOLDEN EGGS!!!
Those were filled with BIG BUCKS and goodies
AND our AWESOME parents even
HID the eggs for us!!!
We did have to go make sure the camo were well camouflaged but overall the
parents did a great job.
NOTE: we did not cover up or bury any eggs... they were just camouflaged!!!
We handed out this paper.
The kids were told how many eggs they were allowed to get
according to what grade they got on a Math Test and a Reading Test.
If you got an A you got 3 eggs
B got 2
C got 1
NOTE: they were given advanced notice of this BONUS activity and were told to STUDY STUDY STUDY ...and... we modified were we needed to if you know what I mean *WINK*
So if a student got an A on both the Reading and Math test they could hunt for 6 eggs
The amount of eggs they could hunt matched the minutes allowed to hunt.
6 eggs = 6 minutes
and so on.
We lined the kids up according to how many minutes they had to hunt.
6 minute "hunters" were in front followed by 5 minute "hunters"
you get the idea!!!
Once you have all of the "HUNTERS" ready to go,
you tell them...
once they grab an egg it is theirs... no putting eggs back
you also tell them about the 3 golden eggs
YOU DO NOT tell them that some eggs are camouflaged!!!
Our school recently got "updated" (what ev) and the WONDERFUL construction crew
did a great job protecting our beautiful grass SEE
