I’m pretty fond of this new Don’t Eat Pete board (updating my collection here!). I think it turned out nicely, so I wanted to share with you! Perfect for any St. Patrick’s Day party, this would work perfect with Lucky Charm cereal or rainbow Skittles for the treats!
3 – 10 kids sit around the game board. The adult or moderator puts a small treat (M & M, chocolate chip, Cheerio, or whatever) on each number. The “guesser” leaves the area so they can’t see or hear what’s going on. Another person points to a number to choose “Pete”. The “guesser” comes back and starts taking the M & M’s (or whatever) off the board and gets to eat them. When the guesser touches “Pete”, everyone yells, “Don’t Eat Pete!!” and the guesser’s turn is over. The guesser eats the last one he got called out on to keep it sanitary!
If you’re lucky, St. Patrick’s day will fall during Spring Break or on a holiday. If not, then you’re got to embrace all the green and pinching that is St. Patty’s Day! Here’s a simple page to give your students to acknowledge the celebration of Irish culture, while secretly (or not so secretly) practicing graphing. 🙂
How is it March already!? This blows my mind! Anyway, remember the snowflake and Valentine’s Day pattern art projects I posted recently? Well, I made one more of those, but this time, they’re clovers for St. Patrick’s Day! The basic idea is that you fill in each section with solid color or a pattern. Each one will turn out very different, but still pretty cool! Again, you can let your students make their own from scratch by letting them trace different sized clovers on their own paper instead of using the printable below.
Word clouds are really trendy right now. I was playing around with them and came up with this worksheet. Kids will color each word a certain color if it’s a certain type of word (proper noun, common noun, other). Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
I recently worked with a 4th grader on finding equivalent decimals and fractions. It inspired me to make this St. Patrick’s Day worksheet about it. I tried to use common fractions (1/3, 1/4, 1/2, etc.) This worksheet is appropriate for upper grades. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
I always like having some educational holiday-themed activities handy for students who finish early. This is my newest one in my St. Patrick’s Day collection. It’s a simple ABC order with St. Patrick’s Day words.
