St Patricks Day Game for School

This St Patricks Day Game for school pack is a great way to celebrate the day!  The students use their rhyming skills, then add a writing experience and you have a ready to go lesson plan for a fun activity. When your class arrives they find their classroom askew with books out of place, papers on the floor etc.  Once they settle down, you read them the note from Shamus, the leprachaun, which YOU found on your desk.  He is asking for help to find his pot of gold.  This St Patricks day lesson take some pre-planning on your part, as the clues lead to places all around the school, from the library to the Main office but the kids LOVE it - it is well worth the set up time.
