St. Paddy's Day Writing Fun! Practice paragraph writing while learning about St. Patrick and discovering Ireland's magical history.
These are not your average St. Patrick’s Day writing assignments!
This bundle includes two separate resources sold individually in my store:
The Amazing St. Patrick’s Day Race (Discovering Ireland Edition)
This highly engaging activity has students practicing paragraph their writing skills by using clues from Liam the Leprechaun to guide them on a journey throughout Ireland to special locations and landmarks. Students are highly motivated to produce their best writing in order to be the winners of the Amazing St. Patrick’s Day Race!
The Amazing St. Patrick’s Day Race (St. Patrick the Saint Edition)
This highly engaging activity has students practicing paragraph writing skills by using clues to retrace the footsteps of St. Patrick throughout Ireland. Students are highly motivated to produce their best writing in order to be the winners of the amazing race!
In each activity, students work together in partners or teams to figure out the answers to clues that lead them to the locations in Ireland. After finding each location, teams write a short paragraph describing the location in more detail. They must submit the paragraph for approval to the teacher before receiving their next clue and moving on in the race!
The activities work best if students have access to some sort of technology, such as a tablet or computer. Each can be completed over a number of periods or a lengthy chunk of the school day!
