Product Description
This St. Patrick's Day activity was created to support a focus on making inferences in the intermediate grades. If you were to do a web search for “inference riddles”, you will see that there are many resources available. One of my favorite ways to teach making an inference is to use riddles to model connecting text to background knowledge or schema. This holiday-themed activity will be a great reinforcement after a lesson using those riddles.

This 3-part activity starts with a story of Liam the Leprechaun, who has a troublesome brother, Lorcan, who is extra mischievous. Lorcan's causing some trouble and Liam needs to go undercover to straighten him out.

Students are asked to disguise Liam, then create an inference riddle to describe their disguise. This activity leads to a riddle gallery walk, where students guess the disguise of each student's leprechaun. After the disguises are revealed, there is a fictional narrative writing exercise where students can continue the story where it leaves off.

This includes:
- Original background story
- Directions for each activity
- Disguise & riddle examples
- Riddle template
- Undisguised leprechaun ready to disguise
- Riddle template for gallery walk
- Fictional writing directions and stationery
