Average rating:5.0Number of reviews:(74)
In this one-time creative art & discussion class, students will creatively use any materials they have at home to build their own Leprechaun traps, while practicing STEAM skills, public speaking and learning about the Irish-folklore.

Class experience

Students will be able to plan, and build their own Leprechaun traps while using their imaginations and creativity with any materials they have available. They will learn to take turns speaking out loud to each other about their creations while having fun.
Homework Offered
This is a one-time class with the Irish-folklore theme art design project, so any incomplete work can be finished independently after the class.
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
Grades Offered
Prior to class, please find art supplies to have during the class that you feel is appropriate to use. Students will be creating a trap in 15-20 minutes with anything they already have and can use found around the house.

Materials include, and are not limited to, 
building blocks, straws, colored construction papers, popsicle sticks, cotton balls, toilet paper rolls, magnetic tiles, markers, colored pencils, kid-friendly glue, scissors (younger children need to be supervised), shoebox, boxes, leaves, plastic cups, utensils, strings, rubber bands, plastic bottles, shiny coins, ...and etc. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Learners will hear a kid-friendly Irish-folklore about the tricky Leprechaun. This art project is not to create any more mom-performance anxiety, but to allow children to independently use their imaginations, have fun and be creative, while practicing public speaking skills, taking turns, listening skills and more. 

If parents are afraid that the learner will be disappointed when they cannot catch this magical creature in the flesh, there are plenty of ideas online where they often leave behind evidence of their presence – footprints, shamrocks, gold coins (chocolate or gold dollar coins), or a note for the children who set the trap. 
Teacher Stephenie will be sharing traditional kid-friendly Irish-folklore about the Leprechaun and discuss how it is difficult to trap the tricky Leprechaun and how to look out for signs left behind of it.
