Have you ever wondered what you could do with your empty egg cartons? No! Well I can help you turn them into exciting learning and teaching tools.
Begin with an empty egg carton.
Depending on the mathematical ability of the child, add numbers for them to add or subtract. Remember, the larger the number the more challenging the task.
Drop in two paper clips. Add more if you want to increase the level of difficulty.
Create an attractive cover for your carton.
With the paper clips inside, shake, shake, shake.
Check to see where the paper clips have landed and create the problem based on the given mathematical rule.
28 ADD 12
28 SUBTRACT 12 etc
Here is another empty egg carton.
This time we are going to help children identify colours.
And the paper clip has landed on RED!
We can also use this approach with literacy too.
