This worksheet allows students to use a primary source document to learn about the suffering caused by the Irish Potato Famine. I use this worksheet to help students better understand the Irish Potato Famine and Irish emigration to the United States.
This activity is very easy to use. All you have to do is print off the primary source from the following website for classroom use, or direct students to the website to answer the worksheet questions:
The primary source document is labeled (The Irish Potato Famine, 1847)
Students read the document and answer the questions on the worksheet. The worksheet includes 12 questions and has an answer sheet for the teacher. The Irish Potato Famine Worksheet can be used to generate classroom discussion or be used as homework. Feel free to modify this assignment as needed for your classes.
