Hi to all my colleagues who are part Irish, love all things Irish, or just want a fun project to do with their students on St. Patrick's Day. I did this with my kids and they had a blast. I have created a colorful, creative booklet with lots of fun facts about St. Patrick himself and the day named after him. I left blanks for the students to fill in the answers. I did this in the computer lab and just loaded all the templates on each computer and the students typed in the answers. It's just as easy to print them out and let them do it by hand. In the instructions, I've given you a website with a fun article about St. Patrick's Day to read to the students. Mine loved listening carefully and being the first one to raise their hand with the answer. Did I mention that on page 4 there is a creative writing exercise as well, just to get a little English in there with the History?
Included in this unit is the booklet template, answer key and instructions with the website. I hope you will consider purchasing this and doing it with your students. It's everything you always wanted to know and a few things that you didn't know all rolled into one. Happy St. Patrick's Day!!
