This is a great slideshow to show elementary students at the beginning of a unit on Ireland, or on St. Patrick's Day. It puts the country in perspective for K-5 students and gives them an overview on some of the highlights of Ireland. This download comes with the slideshow in BOTH a PowerPoint and PDF version.
This slideshow includes:
a map of Ireland
pictures of the landscape
basic Irish phrases
tourist attractions: Rock of Cashel, Blarney Castle, Lakes of Killarney, Cliffs of Moher
Saint Patrick's Day
"Why aren't there any snakes in Ireland?"
Book of Kells
art: linen cloth and Waterford crystal
