Title – Listening Eggs
By – Kathleen Peterson
Primary Subject – Other
Grade Level – K-5, Special Education
- 1 empty Egg Carton
- 12 Colored Plastic Eggs
- Objects to place inside eggs such as small rocks, sand, paper clips, erasers, beans, beads, etc. If there are concerns the student may place the objects in their mouth, the eggs can be hot glued closed or taped.
- Teacher places two similar objects into 2 eggs. Teacher numbers the eggs and records what is in each egg.
- Eggs are then placed in a small basket. Student has to “listen” to the eggs to match the sounds. The matches are placed in the Egg Carton side by side. The student continues until all eggs are matched, then the teacher checks the Answer key to see how well the student “Listened”.
This is a good activity for blind students.
