This product compares and contrasts the stories The Night Before St. Patrick's Day by Natasha Wing and How to Catch a Leprechaun by Adam Wallace. It is a great addition to your literacy unit for this holiday. These stories integrate well with a leprechaun STEM project because both books feature leprechaun traps. There are more realistic traps in The Night Before St. Patrick's Day and more fantastical traps in How to Catch a Leprechaun. We are using this in our school as an activity on Friday after having spent two days on each story. I also have a "first grade version" that includes all of the differences and similarities that I found between the two books. I cut it down to shave some of the cutting and gluing time off of the activity. This version optimizes your use of copies because the cutting sheet can be cut into 1/2 sheets to save paper and copies. I hope that you like it!
