Now that Valentine’s Day has passed, it is time to start getting ready for St. Patrick’s Day. As a mom and teacher to older kids, I enjoy finding themed activities during the year to mix things up a little bit. Sometimes it hard to find holiday activities for middle school and high school students. So, I have put together some St. Patrick’s Day Themed Activities for Older Kids. And, be sure to make your way down to the bottom of this post for the St. Patrick’s Day Giveaway for a $500 Amazon Gift Card or Paypal cash.
Educational St. Patricks Day Themed Activities for Older Kids
As a math teacher for middle school and high school kids, I use Teachers Pay Teachers and Pinterest often to get some ideas for lessons and activities. Through these sites, I’m able to find many free educational St. Patricks Day themed activities for older kids.
St. Patrick’s Day Graphing Activity
With this Free St. Patricks Day Mystery Puzzle, kids will use coordinate pairs to solve the mystery. Although it suggests this St. Patrick’s activity is for 4th – 6th grade, older kids that are working on graphing would benefit too.

Then, what would St. Patrick’s Day be without some good old limericks? Using these free St. Patrick’s Day Limericks templates, students can create their own limericks. Then, the kids write their limericks in the shamrocks to use as a display.
