Each year around St. Patrick’s day in my Kindergarten class, my assistant and I come into school early one day and make a huge mess in the room. We sprinkle green glitter everywhere, put green food coloring in the toilet and just make a general mess of the classroom. Then we pretend we were running late and are unlocking the door just as the kids arrive to our door. As soon as the kids walk in, they immediately suspect that a wild and crazy leprechaun has been up to no good while we were out.
I let my kids file this “artist’s sketch of suspect” and “police report” in hopes that we can catch the leprechaun and find his gold.
I hope your class enjoys this activity as much as mine always does!
