Signs of spring are just around the corner and that means Easter is almost here! Here are great Easter activities for Spanish class in your middle school or high school classroom! Bring on the bright pastels, Easter eggs and cascarones, and all sorts of fun culture to explore with our students!
It is quite a bit of work to do on your own, so you might consider prepping the eggs with step one, then giving each of your students one to make on their own and having them help you with steps two and three!
You could also purchase the eggs pre-made! I know other teachers have shared their Walmart or local grocery store sometimes carries them, or you can purchase them on Amazon!
Once they are made, take them outside for a fun time!
Running Dictation Egg Hunt
If you’ve read my Running Dictation – Tips for (and from!) a Newbie you know that one of my biggest regrets is doing it right around Easter and NOT using Easter eggs to hide the sentences. Gah! Don’t make the same mistake that I did! Jennifer Findley has a post about how she uses an egg hunt for test review and you could totally put sentences in those eggs for your students to do with a dictation. You could even do the activity just as she has here in her post as a review activity!
If you often do Brain Breaks with your students, it could be a fun twist to mix some brain breaks into the eggs along with the sentences like this post shares here! If students find a brain break, they go to their partner and do it together before they keep playing! You could even just put your brain breaks in eggs and allow them to “hunt” for their brain breaks the week of Easter!
Easter Egg Hunt Digital Review Game
Interactive review games on Google Slides are a great way to engage your students! Make a copy of the template for your Google Drive account. Then, insert your questions. It is set up so each question is a multiple choice with 3 options, one correct answer. You can use it with vocabulary or verb practice – whatever fits best in your unit!
No Prep Easter Activities for Spanish Class
One of my favorite things to do for holidays is to use interactive Google Maps so my students can explore the culture from several different countries in one lesson! Students navigate the map, read descriptions, look at pictures, and watch embedded videos. As they do so, they fill out the graphic organizer, or answer comprehension questions!

If you don’t have time for a full lesson on Easter or Semana Santa, these coloring reviews for novices are a great fast finisher option! Leave them out for your students to choose from, then hang them up to decorate! Click here to print these activities from my store!
