We set the trap up using things that we had in our class- an ottoman and a ruler to prop the lid open. We also use fabric to create a "trail" leading to the gold. What we didn't expect to find when we walked in the door to our classroom was, well...a catastrophe...the pictures speak for themselves!
Admist the chaos that had apparently happened in the middle of the night, we fixed our eyes upon our trap. The lid was closed, which means that our trap had been triggered! We gathered around our trap and counted together, "1, 2, 3!!!" I lifted the lid, and what did we see? No, not a leprechaun! Instead the following note was left for us:
You tried to catch me and made mad, but magical powers I do have...
So I captured me gold and stole it back, so your teacher would have a Heart Attack!!
Our naughty leprechaun did leave us a gift. He scattered chocolate gold pieces for us to find.
As we picked up our classroom and put it back together, I passed out Lucky Charms to end our crazy adventure!
