Showdown is a cooperative learning activity in which students work first alone, and then with a team, to solve problems or answer questions on task cards. Easter Egg Showdown is a variation in which the task cards are tucked inside plastic Easter eggs. Students select an egg, open it, read the problem or task, and everyone on the team writes a response. In the final step, team members compare and discuss their answers. In this example, the task cards contain sentences, and students have to identify the subject and the predicate of each sentence.
TeachersPayTeachers store or from the Seasonal page on Teaching Resources. One reason I love this activity is that you can easily adapt almost any Showdown activity to use with the Easter Eggs. To find more Showdown task cards, go to Teaching Resources at http://www.lauracandler.com and type "showdown" into the search box at the top. Showdown works well with basic math review problems, vocabulary words and definitions, states and capitals, or science and social studies questions. What an "eggsciting" way to review!
