This lesson is a playful themed exercise designed to help students see and make comparisons, think deeply, create, and synthesize information from a concise source. It is also a way to introduce some mythology while celebrating St. Patrick’s Day Folk Lore. It would be a great lesson for a high school or middle school English, literature, humanity or Latin classroom. It could also be used for any classroom looking for a St. Patricks’s Day bell ringer that adds fun, culture, and some mythology to the mix. Though the subject matter is light hearted, the exercise is a glimpse of some higher level functioning valuable to students at any age. It is important in a society where we just cut and paste and take multiple choice tests to have exercises that make us think creatively and holistically even if their subject matter seems far from educational and of a more jovial nature. Having the students relate it to their own lives like at the end of this exercise is the type of higher level thinking that is absent in most of our classrooms. This quick exercise is designed to provide your students with some creative thinking that pertains to a fun holiday and ancient mythology at the same time.
