The challenge of designing group lesson plans arrives every couple of months for my studio calendar. Always on the lookout for creative activities, a new idea was hatched at ComposeCreate.com called the Education Insights Eggspert. This educational tool was recommended, it was affordable AND easy to order on Amazon–I’m a big fan–so it was clear that I must acquire one.
The Eggspert System comes with a console that the teacher controls and 6 colorful egg buttons attached by cords to matching egg lights (just noticed that there is a new wireless edition available!). One to six players can play. If the person with the pink egg button is first to poke the pink egg, the matching pink egg light lights up and flashes for a certain amount of time (length designated by the teacher). Before it buzzes the button pusher must answer a question correctly. This is a wonderful system for playing those flash card games that require a quick response. Instead of me guessing who raised a hand first after asking a question, the Eggspert takes the “guess work” out eggspertly! [···]
