Children learn to collaborate with other classmates to find answers and explore. In this Easter learning activity, children use plastic eggs to fill them with the paper sight words.
Once they have the eggs, a teacher or parent can spread them for an egg hunt. Children collect as many eggs as possible. As the children open their eggs, they can identify the English and Spanish sight words.
