This is a great activity for older students to complete on St. Patrick's Day in the library. This crossword puzzle can be completed by using World Book Kids Online to research the answers to the puzzle. I like to teach the students how to use "Control F" to skim the document for a key word from the question to find where the answer is found in the article. Remember to have the students check both the Ireland article and the Quick Facts - "Ireland in Brief" section. It would also be possible to complete this crossword without the use of the encyclopedia, but it would be more challenging.
