Product Description

How St. Patrick's Day Came to America

Tie St. Patrick's Day into a lesson on Irish Immigration! Americans celebrate St. Patrick's Day because between 1820-1930, over 4.5 million Irish immigrated to the United States. This 46 slide PowerPoint presentation takes a look at who St. Patrick was, how the day became a holiday, why the Irish immigrated to the United States, where they lived, what work they did, and more. Links within the presentation help you expand on topics you'd like your students to learn more about (some of these do links require Flash). 5 pages of guided notes that can be printed and handed out or completed digitally by students are also included, as is a 5 page answer key.

This zip file contains 4 versions of the presentation:

1997-2003 version, 2016 version, Google Slide version, and a PDF version. The presentations are not designed to be edited.

The guided notes are available as a PDF file, a fillable PDF, and Google Drive version.

This download contains files that may be printed and copied or used in 1:1 or flipped classes. Use whichever version fit best with your class. The other version remain yours in case you ever need to use them (in case your school makes the jump to 1:1 classes sometime in the future or if you have a student whose IEP requires a hard copy of assignments instead of digital ones).

You may put the materials in this file on a site for STUDENT USE that RESTRICTS access like Google Drive, Google Classroom, OneDrive, Edmodo, Blackboard, etc. where students are either invited via an email address or log in with a user name and password. SHARED LINKS AND PRODUCTS MAY NOT BE UPLOADED TO A CLASS WEBSITE UNLESS THE SITE IS RESTRICTED TO STUDENTS WITH A LOGIN AND PASSWORD.
