This is a fun change from the usual "build a leprechaun trap and write about it" St. Patrick's Day writing prompt. In this fun activity, students will compose a persuasive writing pretending to be the leprechaun stuck in the traps and begging to be freed! Students will showcase their persuasive writing skills in this fun activity. This correlates with graded 3-5 common core curriculum. Graphic organizers, teacher notes, and a rubric are included.
