Saint Patrick’s Day STEM Activities

March is one of my favorite months to do STEM projects! My students have learned all of the classroom procedures, they know where to find materials, and are really beginning to apply their learning.

Today I’ve gathered up all my favorite Saint Patrick’s Day STEM activities from around the web to share with you. I looked for ones that had low material costs, and ones that would be developmentally appropriate for kindergarten!

I bought this little cauldron set at the Target Dollar Spot and have done a lot of activities with them during both Saint Patrick’s Day and Halloween! If you can’t find them at Target here is a link for them on Amazon.

This sink vs float activity would be great with some of the resources I share in this post.

I love doing leprechaun traps, but many of them call for a ridiculous amount of supplies. I’ve done leprechaun traps in my class just using leprechauns that I printed out from my computer, some cheap gold coins (also from the Dollar Spot), and building materials that I already had in my classroom.

You will be amazed at what kids come up with when you give them unstructured projects!
