There’s more to Saint Patrick than green shamrocks and driving snakes out of Ireland. Treat your students to an illustrated look at the saint’s real life - and his legends - from the time he was a slave shepherd, through 30 years of missionary work in Ireland, to his death at the age of 70. This slide show combines illustrations of the saint’s life and actual photos of the Irish countryside where he lived and traveled. The unit includes a slideshow with 23 slides and an 8-page script that gives extra details on
his childhood and kidnapping by Irish bandits
his miraculous escape from slavery
his study for the priesthood
his mission in Ireland including several miracles
his legacy on slavery and literacy
the legends about snakes, the shamrock, and the Celtic Cross
Celebrate Patrick and his saint day on the 17th of March every year with “St. Patrick: The Man and the Legend.” The slideshow is available as both an Apple Keynote and a Microsoft PowerPoint. The script is available as a PDF.
