St. Patrick’s Day Analogies | 2nd-3rd Grades

One of the most important life skills that we can teach any student is to think critically. One fun way to help students begin practicing and honing in their critical thinking skills is through analogies.

What is an analogy? An analogy is a comparison between two things, comparing two things which are comparable in significant respects.

Here are 3 analogy worksheets with a St. Patrick’s Day theme to get students to think critically! Students will love these critical thinking worksheets. Although these were designed to be used in March, they can be used any time of the year.
