Students created traps with their families to catch a leprechaun. We read books about leprechauns and things that would attract a leprechaun. Students then demonstrated how the traps worked. Students also will be writing about the reasons why thier trap will work and what they will do with the leprechaun's gold if they catch one. We will wait for Friday (St. Patrick's Day) to see if we catch one...Update- 3/17/17 We almost caught one... on Friday morning we found the traps had been sprung and we found evidence of gold shiny foot prints all around the traps. Students took the traps home on Friday to set up at home in hopes of catching one.
