St. Patrick's Day Shenenigans

The week leading up to St. Patrick's day, we had a lot of fun completing activities involving shamrocks, the color green, and getting ready for our annual WIPP St. Patrick's Day parade!

Pot of Gold math.  The students filled their pots of gold with gold coins indicated by a number on their pot.

We also talked about skip counting by 10's.  The students did a great job writing the numbers 10, 20, 30, etc. all the way to 100 on shamrocks.  After writing numbers, the students put the numbers in consecutive order to create a skip counting by 10's banner.  Everyone did a great job writing the numbers and counting by tens!

For morning work one day, the students used their imaginations to create with shamrocks, paper, glue, scissors, and crayons.  We ended up with festive works of art and a few Shamrock masks!

We also had fun making Irish flags and shamrock hats to display during our parade.

We also completed a fun experiment in which colored water traveled from one cup to another without being poured.   We speculated what color would be in the middle cup once the yellow and blue water mixed.  Lot's of friends thought green!  The students were amazed as they watched the colored water travel up the paper towel.  Finally, after about an hour we started to see the results of the color mixing.  Green! The color of the week!
