St. Patrick's Day

Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, is credited with bringing Christianity to Ireland. St.Patrick's Day is celebrated with parades in the large cities, the wearing of the green and drinking Guinness (traditional drink of Ireland).

Here are some suggested teaching ideas...

  • Find out about Ireland. How is it similar / different to where you live?
  • Make a travel guide about Ireland. Watch this video tour for some inspiration:

  • Learn about the history of St. Patrick. Who was he? Why do people remember him?
  • Watch this video about St. Patrick. Could you retell it to another person, or rewrite it in the form of a story / storyboard / animation of your own?
