Oh no! A tricky leprechaun has come in the classroom! He left some riddles for you!

This fun, easy to set up (no props needed) escape room will keep your students engaged and learning the days before or after St. Patrick's Day! They will love finding and figuring out the clues that the tricky leprechaun has left them in order to get his surprise! It is a great way to practice and review skills while working together as a team!

I have also included a bonus activity. After students have solved all the clues, they can use inferencing and deductive reasoning skills to figure out which leprechaun visited their classroom.

  • Bonus Activity: Leprechaun Suspects List - students will use inferencing and deductive reasoning skills to eliminate suspects until only one remains
