FREE SOCIAL STUDIES LESSON - “Ireland and St. Patrick’s Day Factoids (Interactive Notebook Activity)”

by Gail Hennessey
4th - 8th Grade

Use these informative factoids about the country of Ireland and St. Patrick's Day as an Interactive Notebook Activity during a study of the country of Ireland or during St. Patrick's Day. Several extension activities are included.

Other resources of interest:

St. Patrick's Day is coming-a wonderful opportunity to introduce your students to the country of Ireland. Did you know that the Celtic knot is a very famous symbol of Ireland? Learn more about Ireland with my fun and informative web quest on Ireland includes 12 questions and lots of extension activities: Ireland/St. Patrick's Day Webquest

2. Another resource about Ireland to consider:This fun/informative play has Ms. Bie Ografee's guest being McSean, a leprechaun. McSean is asked questions by the studio audience about the country of Ireland and the long Irish folklore about leprechauns. Great for a unit on folk stories/folklore or as an activity around St. Patrick's Day. The play has 11 questioners, a Did You Know? section, comprehension questions, a teacher page with extension activities and links as well as the key: McSean the Leprechaun: Reader's Theater Script

3. The Green Game: Need a fun activity where kids have to find answers that have the word GREEN in it or are the color GREEN? Great for St. Patrick's Day or for a Friday. The GREEN Game

NOTE: This resource is INCLUDED in my Ireland Webquest/Activity Resource:
