In class 3 the students decorated and colored templates of St. Patricks Day symbols such as: leprechauns, pots of gold, shamrocks, rainbows, and gold. These drawing were put together into a collage in the corridor to make a mural. 

In class 4 the students made leprechauns. The leprechaun bodies were made of green sticky paper and craft eyes. The hat was made of green, yellow, and black foam paper. The arms and the legs were made of green fuzzy sticks. The leprechauns were hung in the corridor.

In classes 5 and 6 the students were shown a powerpoint by Alice. While watching the powerpoint they learned about different St. Patricks Day traditions celebrated in the United States. After the students made shamrocks out of paper. First they wrote the phrase I am lucky because, on the stem of the shamrock. Then they had to write 4 reasons why they are luck on each leaf of the shamrock. Finally, they decorated the shamrocks and they were hung in the corridor to create one big shamrock.
