Objective:
The
students will add fractions (1/2 only).

Materials

Procedure

Have the
students cut (or pull apart if they have the plastic
eggs) one of their eggs in half.

Have a
discussion on how two 1/2's make a whole. Have
them act this out by putting their egg back together.

Have the
students complete math problems using their
manipulatives. Either call math problems out
and complete them as a whole class, or have the
students
complete the Egg
Math Worksheet.

Use some subtraction problems for older children.

Other
Lesson Ideas

Number the
inside bottom of empty egg cartons 112. These
egg cartons can be used for a variety of math games
and lessons. For example, have the students use
the egg cartons similar to number lines in order to
complete math equations. The students may also
use the egg carton as a playing board by using dice
and markers and trying to be the first to reach the
number 12.

Have a
lesson on what 'dozen' means.

Older
children may do multiplication or division problems to
see how much an individual egg costs when a dozen
costs a certain price.
