St. Patrick's Day Amazing Race - Discovering Ireland Edition!
Get ready for your students to have some fun! This is not your average St. Patrick’s Day writing assignment!
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!
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 after doing some further research, 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!
This activity works best if students have access to some sort of technology, such as a tablet or computer. It can be completed over a number of periods or a lengthy chunk of the school day!
