Test prep doesn’t have to be boring and stressful for the teachers or the students. We try to keep some of our test prep activities super engaging and high-energy to keep students (and teachers) from getting stressed. This post shares details about one of my favorite engaging test prep activities that works perfectly during the spring, which is right at test prep season for us.
Test Prep Egg Hunt – An Engaging Way to Review
For this fun test prep activity, I gathered test prep questions (you can use multiple choice, constructed response, or short answer) and cut them up. I folded the questions and put them into plastic eggs.
I made about 100 eggs because we joined another class for the activity. The eggs were hidden on the side of the building that way they would be separated from the other egg hunting activities that typically take place on the playground.
Next, I had my students pair up or make groups of three. The students were given a recording sheet to record their answers and a clipboard or something to bear down on.
Test Prep Egg Hunt Instructions
Here are the instructions I gave my students for the test prep egg hunt:
- Find an egg. (No other group or pair can have the egg already.)
- Open the egg. Work together to read and discuss the problem. Then record the question number and the answer the question on the recording sheet. Explain or prove your answer on the same recording sheet.
- Replace the question in the egg and carefully put it back in its hiding location.
It was a huge success! The students loved it, and I loved hearing their discussions as they solved the problems.
