Do you want your next lesson to be the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow?
If so, this is just for you!
Middle school teacher, Ellen Peterson, has put together an exciting lesson plan and memory game to bring some festive fun to your classroom this St. Patrick’s Day. Not only will it teach your students about the science behind 4-leaf clovers, but it will also bring some focused-fun to this festive holiday.
Teachers can follow along to the easy step-by-step instructions and print off the lesson resources for the game, which include the Shamrock Memory Game cards, a score sheet for the students, and 3-leaf and 4-leaf clover stencils.
It’s Not as Simple as Mendel Said: A Lesson in Shamrock Genetics
In this activity, students will review the science behind 4-leaf clovers. Individual students will doodle a 3-leaf or a 4-leaf clover based on their final score in the Shamrock Memory Game, which will be played after a review of lesson materials.
Once the lesson plan is complete, you can use the Doodled clovers to decorate the classroom for the occasion!
