Product Description
The students will practice theme, comparing and contrasting, main idea, context clues, inferencing and point of view in this ENGAGING St. Patrick's Day challenge. The students will go through a series of five challenges. They will be earning clues to find out where the leprechaun is hiding. The leprechaun will leave them a note at the beginning and end of the challenge. At the end they will use their inferencing skills to figure out where the leprechaun is hiding and earn a reward of your choice!

Each challenge has a reading or writing component to it.

Challenge 1:
Read two different passages and then write a comparison paragraph comparing the two themes of the stories.
Challenge 2:
Read a leprechaun story and then create a character trait profile for themselves and the leprechaun. The students then compare themselves with the leprechaun.
Challenge 3:
Use context clues to solve the clue through the leprechauns sayings.
Challenge 4:
Read the history of St. Patrick’s Day and then create a main idea and detail four leaf clover.
Challenge 5:
Read different accounts of a crime committed during the parade and analyze the different point of views.

After completing the challenge they earn their clue and go to the next. The challenges are checked by you (answer key provided). They do not have to do the challenges in order. When they are done I set up a special St. Patrick's Day spot with books, St. Patrick's Day games, and anything fun!

This is a great one day challenge that is fun and engaging to students while being rigorous and practices many skills that students need!

This has a Google Drive version and a paper version.
