This project is great for around St. Patrick's Day! This project runs two ideas side by side.
The first part of the project asks students to describe their favorite book character and create a representation on a potato. This is a hugely fun art project. Your kids will love it!
The second part of the project is to research the Irish Potato Famine. Students can record their work on one of the graphic organizers and create a timeline of their findings on the other.
