February 28, 2023 No Comments

St. Patrick’s Day math activities are always exciting to plan! Who doesn’t want math workshop to be a little more fun while you’re waiting for Spring Break?!

But if you’re tired of graphing Lucky Charms, here are some other standards-based St. Patrick’s math activities that your 4th and 5th graders will love.

St. Patrick’s Day Color by Code Worksheets

In March, you might be teaching geometry and measurement, but with spring testing on the way, you might also be looking for activites to review skills your students learned a while back.

These math worksheets make it easy and fun for students to practice math skills you’ve previously taught!

St. Patrick's Day color by number worksheets make it fun to review previously taught math skills!

And trust me, big kids LOVE doing color-by-number activities! With this set, they’ll practice:

  • finding the greatest common factor (GCF) of 2 numbers
  • finding the least common multiple (LCM) of 2 numbers
  • multiplication and division facts

These 3 no-prep worksheets work really well for morning work, math centers, early finishers, and sub plans!

Factors and Multiples Games

When it comes to factors and multiples, the more practice students can get, the better! These St. Paddy’s factors and multiples games jazz up what can otherwise be a pretty boring skill to review.

There are 3 different games that are perfect for partner work. Math centers, morning work, and early finisher activities are just a few ways you can use these with your students.

I love reviewing factors and multiples for St. Patrick's Day math lesson plans!

St. Patrick’s Multistep Word Problem Task Cards

I always love a chance for students to practice solving multistep word problems! But students do NOT love it, am I right? What’s worked for me is to make word problems more fun with themed holiday and seasonal questions.

This set of 16 word problem task cards is perfect to use for a quick warmup each day in March. You can also use them for a class game, scavenger hunt, or partner activity!

These multistep word problem task cards are great to use for March math centers!

The task cards come with an answer key and a student recording sheet so you can check over their work when they’re done.

They’re an easy way to bring rigor into your math workshop when your mind is on planning your Spring Break vacation!

St. Patrick’s Day Math Boom Cards

One more must-have activity is this set of 20 Boom cards! These are perfect if your students need practice identifying odd, even, prime, and composite numbers.

Best of all, they are self-checking and great TEI skills practice!

If you need more ideas, a few more fun topics to tie into leprechauns, shamrocks, and rainbows are probability, measurement, and patterns!

I hope you’ll give these St. Patrick’s Day math activities a try with your 4th and 5th graders! And if you need St. Paddy’s reading activities, I’ve got you covered there, too.
