Kinder Designs Leprechaun Traps!

This is the first time I have tried this project, and it was a big success!  I loved listening to the planning and logic the students used for creating their leprechaun traps.  (There was even a short ethical discussion about how humane the traps should be, and one child stated that she did not want to come back to school to find a “bloody leprechaun”.)  We used all kinds of materials – from buttons to plastic eggs – but the biggest hit were the “jewels” I had left over from 4th grade’s Faberge Egg project.

The morning was a whirlwind, so I did not get a chance to have each child explain how his or her trap works.  I am going to videotape them after Spring Break, so you can hear their ideas.

Thank you to all of the parents who helped us out!  I don’t often have adult assistants in the classroom, and today it was definitely appreciated!

    What made you come up with the fabulous idea for leprechaun traps. It sounds so cool! Hopefully they catch many! (Without hurting them)
