You might not want to do an entire lesson on St Patrick's Day, but a few short activities in observance of the holiday could be a nice addition. This site offers just that. The best feature is a short video that delves into the history of the holiday and explains why it is still celebrated today, but there are several other options. Test your students' knowledge of St. Patrick's Day trivia with two interactive quizzes. Or use some of the site's other links as the basis for a teacher-created "treasure hunt." Other highlights include recipes, reference information about many famous Irish men and women, parade information, and more.

This site is very well done and offers a lot of information. If you are doing any activities about St. Patrick's Day, don't miss this site. Be aware: there are advertisements.

tag(s): holidays (132), ireland (11), st patricks day (12)

In the Classroom

Share the video on an interactive whiteboard or projector. Have students work in cooperative learning groups and complete research papers about the famous Irish people highlighted at this site or other research topics of interest. Have the cooperative learning groups create a multimedia presentation such as a blog or PowerPoint. Family and Consumer Science teachers could use this site to find some recipes to try out in class!

This informative and resourceful website provides information about numerous holidays collected into six different calendar pages.

Some of the specific topics include New Years, Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, Easter, Christmas, and other holidays. Use this website to help your students gain a better understanding of numerous holidays in other cultures. This website provides information about the history of holidays, how the holidays are celebrated and much more.

This is the best of the bunch - hands down. Created as part of a collaborative project with Philadelphia's Franklin Institute, this site combines an Irish theme with travel information, math problems, games, and several entertaining little Java applets. Designed by a team of teachers, this is a site that stays on-theme while teaching a number of different lessons. HOWEVER, some of the materials seem to have been removed over the past years. The remaining pieces perform as advertised.
