Easily plan a fun and engaging Virtual St. Patrick's Day with these digital St. Patrick's Day games! These digital St. Patrick's Day activities are no prep, so they can be completed during remote instruction, as well as in-person learning. There is more than enough to last the whole day and keep your little leprechauns engaged! 6 virtual St. Patrick's Day activities are included in both PowerPoint and Google Slides. Guess Who will only work in PowerPoint.
1. GUESS WHO (oral language game):
Read the first clue to the students (see the following page for clues). Have the students name the pictures that do not match the clue. Click on the pictures that do not belong, and they will disappear (make sure the game is in presentation mode). Continue revealing clues and removing any pictures that do not belong until the class has correctly guessed the St. Patrick's Day character. This game will only work in PowerPoint.
2. LEPRECHAUN CAM (mystery picture game):
Your students will see a zoomed-in portion of a larger picture on the Leprechaun (magic) Cam. They will try to guess what the picture is based on this small glimpse. Three different clues will be given to help them guess the picture. Each clue will appear on a different slide. The mystery picture will be revealed on the last slide. There are 10 mystery pictures included.
3. DIRECTED DRAWING (how-to draw a leprechaun or pot of gold):
Students will learn how to draw a leprechaun or pot of gold. Each directed drawing includes 12 simple steps with easy to replicate lines. These steps build upon the previous step.
4. LEPRECHAUN SAYS (gross motor movement game):
This game can be used to play Charades or Leprechaun Says. It can also be used as a brain break activity.
If you are playing Charades, you will need to privately message a student the action. You could do this via the chat box on your video conferencing platform. The class will try to guess the action. Once they have guessed correctly, share your screen to show the slide. Then, the entire class can complete that motion.
If you are playing Leprechaun Says, share your screen. Display the game in presentation mode. For some of the slides you will say “Leprechaun says.” For other slides, you will not. If there are any students who complete the action and Leprechaun didn’t say to, they will sit. The last student standing wins!
5. ST. PATRICK'S DAY SCAVENGER HUNT (math & literacy game):
There are three rounds with four challenges. Each round has two math and two literacy challenges, as well as a clean up slide. The students will find something in their home for each challenge slide. You could have each student share the item they found, or you could choose just a few students for that slide. Once those students have shared, you could have the entire class hold up the item they found for that challenge. After the round is complete, the class will be instructed to put away their items.
6. TRICKY LEPRECHAUN (CVC word building game):
That tricky leprechaun hid something inside each pot of gold! Then, he mixed up all of the letters! Figure out what’s inside each pot by dragging the letters into the correct order to build each word. There are 6 pictures for each vowel, for a total of 30 CVC words.
