This resource includes print-and-go lesson plans with stories, activities, crafts, and more - perfect for the busy teacher, Sunday School leader, or homeschooling parent.
If you were to ask your students what St. Patrick's Day is all about, I bet they would answer with things like:
*wearing green (or else you get pinched!),
*hunting for lucky shamrocks,
*funny little leprechauns searching for gold at the end of rainbows, etc.
While we can have fun with all of these things, none of those are the reason that St. Patrick's Day became a celebrated day.
The holiday was created to honor Saint Patrick, a priest who lived in the 4th century and had a heart for sharing the good news of Jesus Christ. This year, in addition to (or instead of!) focusing on shamrocks, leprechauns, and gold coins, teach your students about the TRUE hero of the story: Saint Patrick.
