This bundle includes the following seven St. Patrick's Day worksheets:
*INTERNET SCAVENGER HUNT
The worksheet provides websites to visit, where students must read through the text in order to find the answers. The students will then write down the answers on the lines, and will figure out the code. Once they've answered all ten questions, they'll be able to figure out the final question at the bottom of the page.
Students will have to use their knowledge of St. Patrick's Day (and probably some help from the internet) to answer 15 trivia questions. Once they've answered all of the questions, they will be able to unscramble the final answer to the question at the bottom of the page.
*FACT OR OPINION
Students must read the sentences and decide if each one is a fact or an opinion. Once they have labeled each sentence, they will be able to figure out the missing word at the bottom of the page.
Students will have the opportunity to try and decode two cryptogram puzzles, both of which are traditional Irish blessings. An alphabet key is provided for them to fill in as they figure out the letters.Two letters have been filled in to help the students get started.
The following two Irish blessings are featured:
May there always be work for your hands to do.
May your purse always hold a coin or two.
May the sun always shine on your windowpane.
May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near to you.
May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.
May the road rise up to meet you,
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rain fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
Students must read the sentences and decide which type of figurative language is being used.
They must choose from the following:
The last two lines are for students to write their own examples of figurative language.
Students must read descriptions of text and decide what the author's purpose is:
- to inform
- to entertain
- to persuade
- to reflect
At the bottom of the page, there is a section in which they must choose one of the description and write a paragraph based on that author's purpose.
*ADJECTIVES AND ADVERBS
For the top 10 sentences, students must underline the adjectives and circle the adverbs.
For the bottom five sentences, students take a simple sentence and rewrite it with their own adjectives and adverbs.
