St. Patty's Day Fun

We always are on Spring Break during the week of  St. Patrick's Day but I gathered a few fun sites for those of you who will be in school the week before the big green day!

Find a Four Leaf Clover interactive story by Starfall

St. Patrick's Journey- An interactive story that shares the history of St. Patrick's journey through Ireland.  This is a fabulous story and students are given the opportunity to download images from the story so that they can create their own presentation of the story. 

{Mad Lib type activity!}

St. Patty's Day MahJong- The idea of the game is to remove pair of matching tiles from the screen and eventually remove all the tiles.  Tiles are only available if not covered by another tile and their is space on either the left or right side of the title. 
Tiles match only if they have the EXACT same design.

Polygone- Look for different sized shamrocks that have been shifted out of position. 
Use your mouse to click on them and they will shift back into position.  

St. Patrick's Day Crossword  puzzle with clues

Lucky Clover- Find all 10 four leaf clovers as quickly as possible!

{similar to Whack-a-Mole}

Green Leprechauns- Put leprechauns in the area to turn everything green. A leprechaun will turn all the blocks it sees green. It can see blocks on the same row or column but can not see through shamrocks. Two leprechauns must not see each other. If a shamrock has a number, then the number of leprechauns put beside that shamrock must match that number. 

Spot the Differences-   Find all 7 differences before time runs out!
