Begin by marking the spots where students should shoot from. You will need to designate a spot that represents every color of the rainbow. Choose an appropriate item such as a poly-spot, cone or hula hoop to mark each spot. Try to have the item match a color of the rainbow. If you do not have items that match the colors of the rainbow, simply label a cone or spot for each color. Vary the distance of spots from the goal for differentiation!

Print, cut out and laminate multiple shamrocks and rainbows (provided) for students to collect as they earn points.

Modifications: For lower grades, have students use the granny shot while remaining players practice passing. Have leprechauns change goals after every shot guarded to give them more exercise! Let each player shoot 2 times per turn! Vary the distance of shooting spots according to skill level of class.
