The Leprechaun Rhythm cards are terrific for introducing 6/8 time. Your students will quickly develop the lilting feel of compound time by clapping and saying the words "leprechaun", "rainbow" and "gold" to the different rhythm values.
This is an excellent activity to use in preparation for a new piece. Use it along with Little Elves and Pixies for a fun and effective lesson plan.
