Last year right before spring break we were talking about St. Patrick’s Day and leprechauns. We talked about how we could catch a leprechaun. After we had talked about ways to trap a leprechaun I had the students work together in their table groups to try and make a trap for a leprechaun. When they went out for recess I used green finger paint and painted my fist and dipped my finger in the paint to recreate his footprints. I left the “treasure” (some rolos) in the trap that I thought was the best constructed.
