Easter and Springtime Fun (and a Freebie!)
Hey, y'all! I don't know about you but I am totally ready for some spring weather! Easter is one of my favorite holidays. Maybe because it's low stress and a perfect excuse to get a new dress…
Anyways, we're gearing up for some amazing Easter/Spring STEAM centers over here and the kids are buzzing with excitement.
We start off the week with a classic dissolving Peeps experiment. It's very similar to this Peeps experiment we've been doing for years, but in a one page format.
Tuesday through Thursday, the kids go to six science stations exploring all kinds of things Easter and spring related.
In one center they explore their the sense of taste by eating a jelly bean and trying to guess the flavor with their eyes closed. In another, they explore their sense of hearing by shaking plastic eggs and trying to figure out what's inside them.
They also make a pom-pom popper and try to get their pom-pom into the basket, weigh different plastic eggs filled with things you already have handy, make a Peep parachute, and build an egg tower. Your students will be learning and growing dendrites without even knowing it!
For more information on this unit, you can check out the whole thing here.
And while you're at it, grab this FREE sight word egg hunt as well. My first graders LOVE this game and can even play it independently.
I hope you found some things that work for your classroom this spring. I'm always adding new resources so be sure to follow me on TPT for all the latest and greatest.
