MFM1P

- illustrate equivalent ratios, using a variety of tools
- represent, using equivalent ratios and proportions, directly proportional relationships arising from realistic situations
- solve for the unknown value in a proportion, using a variety of methods
- make comparisons using unit rates – solve problems involving ratios, rates, and directly proportional relationships in various contexts using a variety of methods
- solve problems requiring the expression of percents, fractions, and decimals in their equivalent forms

- 51 plastic Easter eggs (find at a Dollar store)
- 2 Easter baskets (find at a Dollar store)
- proportional reasoning questions
- solution handout
- Smartboard
- Smart Notebook file with score board
- whiteboard and markers (optional)
- Easter decorations (optional)
- prizes for winning team (optional)

- Print questions in colour. Cut out questions and place one in each of the 51 eggs.
- Place eggs in an Easter basket.
- Bring up the scoreboard on the smartboard. (Could create your own scoreboard if a smartboard is not available)
- Place students is groups and give each student a whiteboard and marker.
- Have each group choose an Easter basket from the scoreboard.
- One student from the group will come up and choose an egg. They will bring it back to their group where all members will answer the question inside.
- One person will then come and check their answer with the teacher.
- The teacher will check off that the group has answered that question.
- The student will then drag an egg to their Easter basket on the smartboard. Based on difficulty, questions with no eggs on the card students collect 1 egg and questions with 2 eggs on the card students collect 2 eggs.
- Have students place the question back in the egg and choose another one. (Answered questions with egg should be put in a separate basket and put back in circulation when eggs get low.)
- The group who collects the most eggs will win.

**Note: There are some special cards that students will find. I call these the golden eggs (they are not always in yellow eggs but the card is yellow).**
