All throughout the week, the leprechaun will steal green items and hide them in various places. When students find them, they will have a leprechaun taped to them. Meanwhile, we have asked students to go home and build leprechaun traps to see if we can catch a leprechaun. Students will bring in their leprechaun traps on Monday and present them to the class.
Here are some of the leprechaun traps from last year:
This family project gives students the opportunity to work on critical thinking and imaginative design as well as fine motor skills. Traps can be as simple or as complex as the students desire, so this project works for very involved families as well as uninvolved families.
