IDEAS FOR A
SCHOOL EGGSTRAVAGNZA

Have you ever thought about doing a project about eggs?
There are so many exciting activities that you can do in every subject area of the national curriculum. Take a look at our ideas for the classroom.
Dip into the teacher resources and have a go at your own eggstravaganza.
Art

Why not go on an Easter egg hunt of your own to find the most creatively designed eggs around.
What’s more is it doesn’t have to be Easter to have fun drawing, dyeing and decorating an egg.

Design and Technology

There is a lot of creative fun to be had with a box of eggs. Put your class into Top Gear mode and build and race egg buggies.
Creating and testing a parachute for an egg takes a lot of skill and sets young minds on a journey of inventive wilderness.

Eggstravaganza

The big Kuhoona. A fun filled activity pack for all the school to become involved in the process of eggs
and the inventiveness of using a simple everyday accessible object which can be used in so many ways.

Information and Communications Technology

It is surprising how the simple egg can be used to compile so much information such as production or variance in supermarket costs.
Graphs and charts can be used from other projects such as buggy racing or egg parachutes.

Literacy

I wondered lonely as an egg. If only! Creating egg recipes is a great way to get your class enthusiastically involved in literacy.
Then why not create a poster advertising your recipe?

Numeracy

The process of getting eggs from the farm to the supermarket can be fascinating. If you had a shed of 8,000 hens on your farm how many eggs would you get a day,
a week, a month or even a year. Can you calculate the supermarket retail price. How many dozen would you have?

Personal, Social and Health Education

We can put your school in touch with a local egg producer who can come and talk about egg production on their farm.
You can also explore the nutritional values of eggs and even debate the different production systems.

Religious Education

WHY NOT INVESTIGATE THE SYMBOLISM OF EGGS OR EVEN DECORATE AND SET UP YOUR OWN EASTER EGG HUNT.

Science

In a school right now is a future astronaut! Who knows if that journey of adventure starting with creating, exploring, designing and investigating a parachute for an egg!
The complexities of landing an egg safely after launch from an height takes the mind of a future genius.
