Resource The Easter Bunny needs help with his homework! The 'egg hunt' presentation contains 20 times table questions in empty egg shapes to be hidden around the school/classroom. Students must take their answer sheets around to find all of the questions and write down both the question and the answer.
Lesson A series of unstructured questions centred around creme eggs. You will need metre rules, a set of bathroom and kitchen scales, wooden blocks and string (optional), and … Cadbury’s creme eggs! For differentiation choose between two sets of nutritional information: per egg or per 100g.
Resource Students are required to work out the surface area of different cuboids to determine how much paper would be required to cover all the eggs. They then need to work out how many rolls of paper need to be bought and the best deal to choose. Finally need to calculate a total cost.
Resource TES: Students are given 15 minutes in groups to design a chocolate bar. A plain bar costs 20p to make, and then students pick a selection of upgrades from their sheets. These range from nuts and caramel, to bacon and magical ingredients!
Resource TES: Which chocolate bar is best value for money? Maths activity suitable for KS3 and KS4. Statistical investigation. Pupils collect data, comparing the price of chocolate bars, and use the results to price their own chocolate bar. Proportional reasoning. Drawing and interpreting scatter diagrams.
