Kitchen Math: Easter Eggs

Which eggs could you create for Easter?
  • Today’s kitchen math discussion: “What do you notice?”
  • Next Inquiry: “What don’t you know?”
  • Investigation: Materials: paper/pencils/colored pencils/crayons or family learning journals (back of journal). Remind them to turn to the next available page and date it. Ask them to write the name for today’s kitchen math.
  • Inquire: “How would you decide which Easter egg patterns to re-create?”;  “What if you decided to use magic markers or paint instead of dying the eggs, what would you need to have at home?”   “What if there would be 28 guests at your house, how many eggs would you need to boil?”; “What if some one the eggs break during the boiling step, how could you plan ahead for that challenge?” *Let them have 5-6 minutes to draft their thoughts (without talking). When they are finished, have them share how they came to their conclusions.
  • Kitchen Lab: Discuss: “What type of egg decorating tools and supplies will you need before Easter Sunday? Finally, invite your family to sketch and color their Easter egg designs in their journal. *If you know how many eggs you will be boiling, divide the eggs designs by the number of family members, this will help everyone know how many eggs they should design in their journals.
