Your egg-stra special treat from me is an activity that uses Easter eggs to teach statistics. I have used this activity with preschoolers on up to high schoolers. (I just provide more assistance with the little ones.) So everyone should be able to enjoy this freebie- Yippee!
This simple activity teaches statistics in a meaningful way. First, fill 10 Easter eggs with a random number of jelly beans and hide them. Number each egg on the outside with a permanent marker. Have your children/students find the eggs. (If you do not want to have your children or students hunt for the eggs, fill a basket with them.) As your child/student opens each egg, have him record the number of jelly beans in each. Last, have him calculate the mean, median, mode, and range.

Hoppy Easter everyone!
