Leprechaun Traps

This is a St. Patrick's Day Project where students construct Leprechaun Traps using what they know about Simple Machines.

Perfect for STEM!!

My students LOVE this project every year!! You can use old scrap materials from your classroom and student donations to build the traps. No need to go out and purchase lots of items. Your students will work in small groups throughout the project and you'll have everything you need to guide and assess them on it.

This packet includes:

Sample Outline for the Week

Parent Supply Letter

Resource Page

Simple Machines Mini Booklet

Simple Machines Scavenger Hunt

Can/Have/Are Leprechaun Tree Map
