PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This resource includes:

--- two reading passages about the origins of St. Patrick’s Day as well as the origins of some of the words associated with the celebration. It also discusses the development of the English language and the history behind the decline of the Celtic culture along with modern attempts to keep Irish Gaelic alive.

---each informational text has a student work page that includes vocabulary and comprehension questions. The passages have a common topic but can be read at different times but should be read in order.

A list of 34 words associated with March 17th is also included to help students choose a word to research for the “word origin challenge” at the bottom of the work page that accompanies the second text. This page is not numbered and is at the very end of this file.

A full answer key is provided for objective work.
