This product is to help increase student’s awareness about St. Patrick’s Day as well as work on listening comprehension, short term memory and answering wh questions.
There are 24 interesting facts about St. Patrick’s Day, St. Patrick himself, and Ireland. Each excerpt contains 2-4 sentences. Then there are two questions associated with the excerpt. Most questions are WH questions but there are several yes/no questions.
This can be a print and go activity or you can cut out each set of facts and put them in a pile. If you are working with a group of students they can go around in a circle reading the facts/questions and having other peers answer the questions so its also working on reading skills. This is a great activity for students who need to improve their auditory processing skills because they need to auditorily process the information.
