Our students partnered up, which surprisingly works well with our students this year. No fussing, no one left out, no problems!
Each group was given a blank map of Ireland (found on none other than Google! images) that they were to fill in with the county names they found online. After filling in, they had to color it without touching colors (just another challenge).
Next, they were given the assignment of creating WANTED posters for a criminal leprechaun. They had to creatively name their leprechaun, physically describe him, describe his crimes, and describe, using their map, where he was last seen and headed.
I love my kids! They did such a great job! Cooperative. Crafty. Creative. I have the best job ever.
