Gladys the Gorilla’s 1st Easter Egg Hunt

Easter Egg Hunt

For today’s Phun Phriday post, I give you a video of gorillas going on an Easter egg hunt at the Cincinnati zoo.  They do it a bit differently than humans…

Easter S.C.A.M.P.E.R.

To get my students’ creative juices flowing, I allowed them to choose from some Easter S.C.A.M.P.E.R. prompts this week.  (I also offered some Spring prompts for those who don’t celebrate Easter).  If you are not familiar with S.C.A.M.P.E.R., you can view my original post about it here.  The two most popular prompts were for “Rearrange” and “Combine”.  The first asked, “If Easter was rearranged so the Easter Bunny would get gifts instead of you, what would you give the rabbit who already has all of the carrots he needs?”  And for the second one, “Give the Easter Bunny another famous character as a partner, and tell how his or her talents could be helpful to the Easter Bunny.”

You can borrow the above prompts if you like, or if you would like the whole Easter Creative Thinking packet, you can download it here for a $1.00.  You can also find the Spring one  and the Summer Pool Party one at my TPT store.

This 3rd grader would give the Easter Bunny a brand new computer - along with his very own website.

This 1st grader decided that Barbie in A Mermaid Tale would be the perfect partner for the Easter Bunny because she can swim to houses.

I have added an Easter Creative Thinking Packet to my Teachers Pay Teachers store.  It is now available for $1.00.  It includes brainstorming ideas, as well as printable worksheets for each of the S.C.A.M.P.E.R. creative thinking tools created by Bob Eberle.  My gifted students in 1st-5th enjoy these S.C.A.M.P.E.R. packets, as the activities give them the chance to stretch their imaginations.  We are in the home stretch right now for the school year, and thinking outside the Easter basket could lessen some of the stress!
